Résumé : The follow-up of chronic kidney failure is a long and complex process. The diagnosis of the kidney disease and the level of renal failure have first to be established. A strategy for slowing the evolution of chronic kidney disease has to be build. The blockade of the renin angiotensin system and the control of the cardiovascular risk factors are the main components of this strategy. The evaluation and the treatment of the classical complications of chronic kidney disease should also take place. Correction of anemia, and of phosphocalcic complications need specific therapies. Preparation for dialysis and transplantation have to be taken into account. Such a follow-up deserves a close collaboration between general practitioners and nephrologists.
