Abstract

Background: Chronic kidney disease causes progressive loss of function which gradually occur overtime leading to decrease in GFR levels leading to dysfunction of renal system. Hypertension is found to be intermingled cause and overlapping complication in CKD. It is important to intervene the progression by controlling the blood pressure to prevent kidney failure by administration of anti-hypertensive. Objectives: To study current trends in anti-hypertensive prescription pattern in CKD patient and to evaluate the concurrent patterns are in adherence according to the guidelines mentioned.  Methods: Prospective observational study was undertaken in patients who were satisfying the inclusion criteria and was enrolled into the study conducted for a 6months period in a tertiary care hospital in Bangalore. Results: 150 CKD patients were examined out of which 72% prevalence seen in males compared to females 28%. Dual drug therapy was most preferred combination seen in 48% of the prescriptions. CCB was the most preferred class of drug and least preferred class of drug was ACE. More than 85% deviation from JNC-8 was seen. 20% of mono-therapy was found in adherence to JNC-8. Conclusion: A 15% adherence to JNC-8 guidelines was observed in the treatment indicating need for clinical pharmacist who play vital role in management of CKD by adherence to JNC-8 to ensure safety, efficacy and rationality.
