Kidney disease: 54 M asks if early Kidney disease increases risk of DVT or PE? ANS: there are many kinds of kidney disease some do and some don't so need more details. Most likely one for clots is renal cell carcinoma.

Slightly increased : No conclusive data yet, but may slightly elevate the risk. We know from the LITE study that mildly decreased kidney function was associated with a 1.3-fold increased risk of VTE, but this wasn't independent of cardiovascular risk factor levels. Also microalbuminuria is independently associated with increased VTE risk in large cohorts with near two-fold increased risk.
