Q: What does suffixes p, T and D means after CKD (Chronic Kidney Disease)?


  • The addition of p to a stage (e.g. CKD-4p) means that there is significant proteinuria
  • The addition of T to a stage (e.g. CKD-2T) indicates that the patient has a renal transplant
  • The addition of D to stage 5 CKD (e.g. CKD-5D) indicates that the patient is on dialysis
