We observed that dark and Hispanic donors had approximately twice the risk of chronic kidney disease while white donors. In NHANES, the prevalence of chronic kidney disease was also doubly high among black respondents as among white respondents and tended to end up being higher among Hispanic respondents than among white respondents. Similarly, the 2008 U.S. Renal Data Program registry reported that the national incidence of end-stage renal disease among dark individuals was 3.7 times that among white people, and end-stage renal disease among Hispanic people was 1.5 times that among non-Hispanic white persons.32 Recent queries of registrations of kidney-transplant applicants showed that although 12 percent of living kidney donors through the period from 1996 through 2007 were black, black donors represented 43 percent of 148 previous donors who were subsequently listed for kidney transplantation.33,34 Our data also claim that nonwhite donors have an elevated frequency of end-stage renal disease, although the number of such events was low.
