CASTELLANOS CASTILLO, Yoandis; FONG ESTRADA, Juana Adela; VAZQUEZ TRIGO, José Manuel  and  FONG, Jacquelin. Markers of renal damage in patients with risk factors of chronic renal disease. MEDISAN [online]. 2018, vol.22, n.2, pp.142-148. ISSN 1029-3019.

A descriptive and cross-sectional study of 46 patients older than 18 years, belonging to the doctor's office 34 of the health area in Majagua, Ciego de Ávila, was carried out from September, 2015 to February, 2016. The complementary tests were indicated to all the members of the series, such as microalbuminuria, glomerular filtration rate, creatinine, Addis and urea counts . The imagenologic studies were not carried out due to the long distance, difficulties with the transportation and the ultrasonography equipment. The disorder of renal markers was present in half of those affected patients with risk factors, which allowed to detect earlier the chronic renal disease in that population group
