Chronic kidney disease

Chronic kidney disease, also called chronic kidney failure, describes the gradual loss of kidney function. If the failure worsens, an elevated amount of waste can build to high levels in the blood.

Complications such as high blood pressure, anemia, weak bones, malnourishment and nerve damage can develop, as well as increasing the risk of having heart and blood vessel disease. These problems may happen slowly over a long period of time. Chronic kidney disease may be caused by diabetes, high blood pressure and other disorders (glomerulonephritis, polycystic kidney disease, kidney malformations, kidney obstructions and constant urinary infections). Early detection and treatment can often keep chronic kidney disease from getting worse.
