Background Chronic kidney disease (CKD) affects 10–15% of the general population and affected individuals are at an increased risk for cardiovascular disease (CVD). Since telomere length is considered to be involved in biological aging, we tested whether relative telomere length (RTL) might be a marker for these two diseases. Methods The German Chronic Kidney Disease (GCKD) study is an ongoing ...
