Brief description There is an overwhelming burden of chronic disease in Indigenous Australians. In order to attempt to improve kidney disease in this high-risk population, it is vital that we are able to accurately measure kidney function. This study will provide evidence to accurately assess kidney function in Indigenous Australians. This will then enable development of appropriate clinical guidelines and more effective monitoring of future interventions to slow progression of kidney disease.
