Background: The goal is preventing or delaying the deterioration of the kidney disease into severe chronic kidney failure. This requires a long treatment period. This study will be very useful in planning for the care of patients with chronic kidney disease, with the ultimate goal of preventing peritoneal dialysis.

Objective: The research goal was to study the predictors of chronic kidney disease, looking at patients with chronic diseases in the community.

Materials and methods: This is a descriptive study; the sample consisted of 205 chronic disease patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) in community Lam Luk Ka District. Data were collected through an interview. Data were analyzed using a statistics approach of frequency, percentage, mean and standard deviations. The statistics revealed the relationship factors of CKD, and the factors that would predict CKD for patients with disease, by stepwise multiple regression analysis.

Results: The coefficient of prediction (R2) is 0.459. All six variables (factors) could significantly predict chronic kidney disease in patients within the community, at the statically significant level of 0.05 (45.90%).

Conclusion: Providing self-care advice to patients in self-care, and the behaviors of these patients, in order to slow or halt the progression of the diseases, as well as the prevention of other serious conditions, all of which will affect the quality of life of patients, both physically and mentally.
