A suitable evaluation and management structure is important for slowing and delaying the progression of chronic kidney disease (CKD) and improving the quality of life in the elderly patients. Due to the special features of the elderly CKD patients, there also exist some problems to be solved or researched currently. According to the latest guideline for clinical practice, we discuss some aspects in diagnosis and prognosis of the elderly CKD patients as well as the management of common complications, so as to reduce over-diagnosis, and better predict the risks of progression to end stage renal failure and take necessary measures for clinical intervention as soon as possible.
