Background and aim Chronic kidney disease is a major public health problem with increased global incidence and prevalence, especially in Egypt, poor quality of life, and high risk of morbidity and mortality. The aim of the work was to determine the prevalence and the risk factors of incidental kidney diseases among apparently healthy adults. Patients and methods A total of 300 healthy normotensive and normoglycemic individuals were assessed for creatinine, proteinuria, and glomerular filtration rate, with correlation to their BMI and systolic and diastolic blood pressures. Results Microalbuminuria was positively correlated to age, BMI, and systolic blood pressure, with a significant P-value of less than 0.001. Conclusion The prevalence estimates and risk factors for those with microalbuminuria as a marker of occult renal disease include age, BMI, high systolic blood pressure, and family history of renal problems.
