What is Chronic Kidney Disease?


What is Chronic Kidney Disease?

Your kidneys are essential organs that help remove waste and excess fluids from your body. When your kidneys get damaged or injured, they may not function properly, leading to chronic kidney disease(CKD). If left untreated, it can cause kidney failure, which means your kidneys stop working altogether. So taking care of your kidneys is very important by maintaining a healthy lifestyle and getting regular checkups. People with kidney disease progress to kidney failure requiring dialysis and kidney transplantation or die early due to heart failure.

What Causes CKD?

Chronic kidney disease can happen for different reasons, but the top two causes are diabetes and high blood pressure. Diabetes and high blood pressure contribute to 60-70% of new cases of kidney failure.


Other causes of kidney failure account for there maining 30-40% of cases.
These include:


Inflammation of the kidney's filtering units that can cause long-term damage to the kidneys.

Polycystic kidney disease

A genetic condition where clusters of cysts develop in the kidneys, eventually replacing healthy kidney tissue.

Autoimmune diseases

IgA Nephropathy is the most common cause of kidney disease. Others include Lupus and Goodpasture syndrome, which can cause kidney inflammation and damage.

Urinary tract obstructions

Blockages in the urinary tract caused by kidney stones or an enlarged prostate can lead to chronic kidney disease if not treated promptly.


CKD Requires Early Intervention and Treatment

Chronic kidney disease doesn’t develop overnight. Instead, it occurs over five stages (CKD1 through CKD5)
and can be slowed if discovered early.
