Objective: To identify the cost of chronic kidney disease by stage in patients with diabetes. Methods: Cost study in type 2 diabetics, in five groups defined from the stage of chronic kidney disease. Those with more than five years of evolution of type 2 diabetes were included; the sample size was calculated for each stage and the selection was simple random. The diagnosis by stage was calculated using the Cockcroft-Gault equation. The average cost was integrated from the profile of use and the unit cost, estimation of the projection of the cost was made, an estimate of the cost was also made for a patient with 25 years old with chronic kidney disease. Results: In stage 1, the annual cost is $ 587.39, and in stage 5, $ 10,748.51. Caring for 25 years in a population of 100 diabetic patients adjusted for lethality, keeping the stadium and inflation costs $ 7,067,674, and the average cost of an individual in this same scenario is $ 70,672. Conclusion: It can be said that the cost per stage of chronic kidney disease in the diabetic patient is high, with marked difference between the different stages.
