Chronic Kidney Disease
Chronic kidney disease (CKD), commonly known as chronic kidney failure, occurs when your kidneys gradually lose function. Your kidney expels extra wastes and fluids filtered from your blood as urine from your body. However, when chronic kidney disease reaches an advanced stage, your body may start accumulating harmful quantities of fluid, electrolytes, and wastes.
You may have a few symptoms in the early stages of chronic renal disease, but they may not be noticed until your kidney function has deteriorated severely. Chronic renal disease treatment reduces kidney damage by addressing the underlying cause. Without mechanical filtering (dialysis) or a kidney transplant, chronic kidney disease can proceed to end-stage kidney failure, which can be fatal.
