Abstract

Background: The aldosterone-to-renin ratio (ARR) is used to screen for primary aldosteronism and could be an index for salt sensitivity. The association between ARR and the development of chronic kidney disease (CKD) is completely unknown. Method: A longitudinal observational study involving 689 participants from a general Japanese population (mean age 58.2 years; 68.5% women) who did not have CKD and were not receiving antihypertensive medication at baseline was conducted. The estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) was calculated from serum creatinine levels, and CKD was defined as eGFR less than 60ml/min per 1.73m2 and/or dipstick-positive proteinuria. The associations of baseline plasma renin activity (PRA), plasma aldosterone concentration, and ARR with the development of CKD were examined using Cox proportional hazard regression analysis adjusted for sex, age, BMI, smoking, drinking, history of hypercholesterolemia, diabetes mellitus, and cardiovascular disease, SBP, and baseline eGFR. Results: During a mean 9.1-year follow-up, 118 participants developed CKD. A 1 standard deviation increment in the natural log-transformed (ln) ARR was positively associated with the incidence of CKD (hazard ratio 1.29, P=0.012). LnPRA showed an inverse association (hazard ratio 0.76, P=0.007). Meanwhile, plasma aldosterone concentration was not associated with CKD. Individuals who developed CKD had significantly lower baseline PRA (0.97 vs. 1.14ng/ml per h; P=0.03) and higher baseline ARR levels [66.6 vs. 56.8 (pg/ml)/(ng/ml per h); P=0.02] than those who did not. Conclusions: Lower PRA and higher ARR were associated with the development of CKD in a general population, suggesting that they are independent predictors of CKD.
