Abstract: Background: Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is an emerging public health problem worldwide. Previous studies have shown an association between blood pressure (BP) and CKD. However, it is not clear if there are ethnic differences in this association. We examined the association between BP and CKD in a multi-ethnic Asian population in Singapore. Methods. We analysed data from three large population-based studies conducted between 2004-2011, (n=3,167 Chinese, 3,082 Malays and 3,228 Indians) aged 40-80 years. CKD was defined as an estimated glomerular filtration rate
