Chronic Kidney Disease

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a kidney disorder where the functioning of kidneys tends to stop after a while (months to years). The kidneys can’t filter blood the way kidneys should and it damage which causes wastes to build up in the body and may cause other health problems like heart disease and stroke. Though there are no initial symptoms in general, some of the common symptoms observed later are leg swelling, loss of appetite, feeling tired, vomiting, and confusion.  Increased risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, hypertension, polycystic kidney disease, and glomerulonephritis are some of the causes of chronic kidney disease. Early screening and initial treatments include medications to lower blood pressure, sugar, and cholesterol levels.
