[Extract] Evidence suggests that 1.7 million persons (10% of the Australian adult population) are living with chronic kidney disease (CKD).1 Within the Australian CKD population, around 10% of individuals are found to have a genetic cause for their kidney disease.2 As genomic sequencing technology becomes more mainstreamed, the identification of genetic kidney disease (GKD) is expected to increase. The CKD population experiences an excess of morbidity, engagement with health services, and mortality.1 In all, 1 in 7 (16%) of 2015 to 2016 hospitalizations in Australia were associated with CKD.1 It is yet to be clearly established whether and how individuals with CKD due to GKD differ from those with non−GKD-related CKD, and whether their disease follows the same clinical trajectory.
