Brief description Almost 20% of Indigenous Australian adults exhibit signs of kidney disease. This study will investigate the relationship between sub-gingival (below the gum) bacteria and both kidney and artery function among Indigenous Australian participants with chronic kidney disease. Using an RCT design, the proposed study will investigate whether changes in sub-gingival bacteria and concentration following conventional treatment of periodontitis align with improvements in renal and vascular function.
