Abstract Chronic kidney disease affects millions of Americans. Many drugs are eliminated from the body by the kidneys. As renal function declines due to the disease, drugs that are normally eliminated by the kidneys can accumulate, potentially leading to toxicity. Assessing kidney function in patients is essential in determining the appropriate dose of medications to achieve the desired clinical outcome while minimizing the potential for toxicity.
