Enter the weight, age factor, severity factor, and dialysis factor into the calculator to determine the Ckd Protein requirement.

Ckd Protein Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Ckd Protein requirement.

PR = (W * A * S) / D


  • PR is the protein requirement W is the weight of the individual in kilograms A is the age factor (0.8 for adults, 1.0 for children) S is the severity factor (1.2 for mild CKD, 1.3 for moderate CKD, 1.5 for severe CKD) D is the dialysis factor (1.2 for those on dialysis, 1.0 for those not on dialysis)

To calculate the Ckd Protein requirement, multiply the weight of the individual by the age factor, then multiply the result by the severity factor. Divide the result by the dialysis factor.

What is a Ckd Protein?

Ckd protein, also known as cyclin-dependent kinase, is a type of enzyme that plays a crucial role in regulating the cell cycle. These proteins interact with cyclins to control key stages of cell division, including DNA replication and mitosis. They are also involved in other cellular processes such as transcription, mRNA processing, and the differentiation of nerve cells. Dysregulation of Ckd proteins can lead to uncontrolled cell proliferation, which is a characteristic of cancer.

How to Calculate Ckd Protein?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Ckd Protein using the given formula:

  1. First, determine the weight of the individual in kilograms (W).
  2. Next, determine the age factor (A). For adults, the age factor is 0.8, and for children, it is 1.0.
  3. Next, determine the severity factor (S). For mild CKD, the severity factor is 1.2, for moderate CKD, it is 1.3, and for severe CKD, it is 1.5.
  4. Next, determine the dialysis factor (D). For those on dialysis, the dialysis factor is 1.2, and for those not on dialysis, it is 1.0.
  5. Finally, calculate the Ckd Protein using the formula: PR = (W * A * S) / D.
  6. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem:

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge:

Weight of the individual (W) = 70 kg

Age factor (A) = 0.8 (for adults)

Severity factor (S) = 1.3 (for moderate CKD)

Dialysis factor (D) = 1.0 (not on dialysis)
