Main outcome measures and results -- 210 patients...developed advanced chronic renal failure, 117 (51%) of whom were over 70...Only 54% (113) of patients were referred to a nephrologist; 120 patients (57%) needed dialysis or died within three months of presenting without receiving dialysis, and 187 (89%) died or needed dialysis within three years...Conclusions -- many patients suitable for renal replacement treatment are still not referred for nephrological opinion and are denied treatment....
