Chronic kidney diseases (CKD)
Chronic kidney disease (CKD) means that your kidneys are damaged, and you cannot filter your blood as it should. The disease is called "chronic" because the damage to the kidneys occurs slowly over a long period of time. This damage can lead to the accumulation of waste products in the body. CKD can also cause other health problems. The kidney's main job is to filter excess water and waste products from the blood to make urine.
