The BRain In Kidney Disease Study (BRINK)

The goal of this study is to learn how common memory problems are in patients with and without chronic kidney disease (CKD), and the possible causes of these memory problems. This research could influence care and treatment to reduce the risk of memory loss in patients with CKD. There are no medications given as part of this study.
