  • a CKD, chronic kidney disease; SES, socioeconomic status; FSGS, focal segmental glomerulosclerosis; K/DOQI, Kidney Disease Outcomes Quality Initiative; CRI, chronic renal insufficiency. SES was determined by calculating a composite index on the basis of adolescent report of maternal and paternal education, maternal and paternal employment status, and eligibility in free school lunch programs.
