Abstract

The high and increasing burden of the age-related condition chronic kidney disease (CKD)
illustrates the need for improving the prediction and prevention of this impactful disease. In
order to achieve this, there is a need for a better characterization of kidney function decline
and for unravelling determinants of kidney function decline in the general population. In
addition, kidney function and kidney function decline may be an important determinant of
other non-communicable diseases which are related to ageing populations. Hence, the main
aim of this thesis is to obtain insights into the determinants and effects of kidney function
in the general population.
