What Is Kidney
Chronic kidney disease (CKD), also known as chronic renal disease, is a condition that occurs when your kidneys don't work as well as they should to filter waste, toxins and excess fluid from your body. Kidney disease progresses in stages and may eventually lead to kidney failure.
The goal of treating CKD is to best manage your health at every stage, which can help slow progression and keep your kidneys functioning as long as possible. Treatment options for kidney failure include dialysis or a kidney transplant.
