There is some evidence to support this, as persons with CKD have been reported to have higher serum concentrations of C-reactive protein in some studies 61 , 62 —although the mechanisms for this association are unclear. Decreased clearance and comorbid cardiovascular disease are potential explanations.

The existing evidence supports the conclusion that CKD is a model of accelerated aging, manifested by higher risks for poor physical function, frailty, and cognitive decline. A better understanding of these associations may lead to the identification of novel pathways to prevent the development of disability and dementia in older adults.
Because physical and cognitive functions are important determinants of health-related quality of life and longevity, clinicians caring for older adults with CKD should incorporate preservation of functional status as an important component of routine care. Simplification of medication regimens, support from ancillary health care workers, emphasis on maintaining physical activity, and other principles of geriatric management are particularly applicable to older adults with CKD.
