The incidence of treated end stage renal disease in the eastern United States: 1973-1979.


Incidence rates of treated end stage renal disease (ESRD) by age, sex, race, and reported primary etiology were analyzed for 20 contiguous Eastern States for the period 1973-1979. For White males and females rates have stabilized at 60 and 40 per million person-years, respectively, since 1977. The incidence rates for Blacks (125 per million person-years in males, and 100 in females in 1979), for hypertensive and diabetic nephropathy patients, and for the 65+ age group continue to increase. Higher incidence rates in males were noted for both races during the entire study period. Blacks had twice as high an incidence of treated ESRD as Whites, primarily due to hypertensive and diabetic nephropathy patients (7 and 2.5 times higher, respectively).
