The most common diagnosis was diabetic nephropathy (n = 59; 33%) followed by primary and secondary forms of focal segmental glomerular sclerosis (n = 37; 21%), hypertensive and atherosclerotic renal disease (n = 30; 17%), membranous nephropathy (n = 19; 11%), primary chronic tubulointerstitial nephritis (n = 7; 4%), amyloidosis/monoclonal immunoglobulin deposition disease (n = 7; 4%), thin basement membrane nephropathy/Alport syndrome (n = 6; 3%), minimal change disease superimposed on nephrosclerosis (n = 4; 2%), fibrillary glomerulonephritis (n = 3; 2%), inactive membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis or idiopathic nodular glomerular sclerosis (n = 3; 2%), inactive lupus nephritis (n = 1; 1%), and fibronectin glomerulopathy (n = 1; 1%).
