Abstract OBJECTIVE: To study degrees of chronic kidney disease (CKD) using creatinine clearance in adult Nigerian patients with sickle-cell disease (SCD). METHODS: One hundred SCD patients, made up of 79 HbSS (homozygous haemoglobin S) patients and 21 HbSC (heterozygous haemoglobins S and C) patients, were investigated prospectively, along with 50 normal controls. Their sociodemographic data, weight and drug history were documented. Each participant underwent dipstick urinalysis, and creatinine clearance was calculated following a 24-hour urine collection and serum creatinine measurement. They were categorized into stages of CKD based on the creatinine clearance. RESULTS: Of the 79 HbSS patients, 14 (18\%), 28 (35\%), 33 (42\%) and 4 (5\%) had stage 1, 2, 3 and 4 CKD, respectively. In the HbSC group, 3 (14\%), 9 (43\%) and 9 (43\%) patients had stage 1, 2 and 3 CKD, respectively. Proteinuria was noted in 16 (20\%) HbSS patients but not in any of the HbSC patients. Of the subjects aged ≤24 years (n = 49), 9 (18\%), 18 (37\%), 21 (43\%) and 1 (2\%) had stage 1, 2, 3 and 4 CKD, respectively. Of those aged >24 years (n = 51), 8 (16\%), 19 (37\%), 21 (41\%) and 3 (6\%) had stage 1, 2, 3 and 4 CKD, respectively. None of the subjects had stage 5 CKD. CONCLUSION: In this study, the adult subjects with SCD had various degrees of CKD. Adequate follow-up and active intervention are advocated to delay the onset of end-stage nephropathy. © 2014 S.
