A progressive and irreversible loss of kidney function is the characteristic of chronic kidney disease (CKD), commonly known as chronic kidney failure.
Your body may accumulate hazardous amounts of fluid, electrolytes, and wastes if you have advanced chronic renal disease. Your kidneys filter the blood of wastes and surplus fluid, which is then eliminated through urine.
Kidney disease may have no symptoms till it reaches an advanced stage. 50% of CKD patients realize they have kidney disease when they have already reached stage 5. So screening for Kidney disease is the best way to detect it in time. Those who are at risks like- Hypertensives, Diabetics, Obese, smokers, alcoholics, those with any other chronic diseases like COPD, Heart disease, Liver disease, arthritis, or those using Pain killers regularly, and those who are above 40 years – should screen themselves for kidney disease at least once a year. Treating chronic renal disease aims to stop or slow kidney damage from progressing, generally by addressing the underlying cause and the risk factors that cause rapid progression when not controlled.
