The Impact of Sex-Specific Differences on Chronic Kidney Disease Care


Approximately 37 million Americans have chronic kidney disease (CKD) with significant disparities in detection, progression, and complications between men and women on both clinical features and social determinants of health (SDOH). The goal of Dr. Yilu Lin’s project evaluates the sex-related differences to improve CKD care for all sex groups. Dr. Lin uses clinical features and SDOH to examine the sex-specific patterns on CKD and its complications. Ultimately, this new knowledge may guide the future development of targeted interventions and policies to improve CKD care for all sex groups. Dr. Lin aims to enhance expertise in precision epidemiology, improve understanding of the sex disparities of understanding of the clinical features and SDOH on CKD, and develop targeted, evidence-based interventions and healthcare policies to optimize the CKD care among all sex groups.
