People suffering from advanced kidney failure are often undiagnosed and not referred to kidney specialists (nephrologists) for treatment, with the majority of cases being women. A study found that as much as two thirds of patients were not diagnosed with chronic kidney disease, which is detected via blood tests for kidney function and calculated glomerular filtration rate.
