What is Chronic Kidney Disease?

Chronic Kidney Disease:

Chronic Kidney Disease means permanent kidney damage which has been present for at least 3 months and is progressive in nature.

As the disease progress ,toxins and waste products builds up in the blood and cause complications like uncontrolled blood pressure, low haemoglobin levels,weak bones, poor nutrition health and nerve damage.

Chronic Kidney Disease is also a risk factor for the heart disease and increases chances for the heart attack. It is most commonly caused by diabetes and high blood pressure , which have been inadequately treated over a long period of time.

Early detection and treatment can help in slowing the progression of renal disease and prolong the time of dialysis.

Kidney disease if untreated , eventually leads to kidney failure, and then dialysis or kidney transplant remain the only therapeutic option.
