During 2015–2016, 3.5% of adult visits to the emergency department were made by those with chronic kidney disease.
A higher percentage of visits were made by men with chronic kidney disease than women (4.1% compared with 2.7%).
The same pattern was observed for non-Hispanic black men (5.0%) and women (2.4%).
Although the pattern was similar, there was no statistically significant difference in emergency department visits by sex for Hispanic and non-Hispanic white adults.
