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.
For your body to function properly, your kidneys balance salts and minerals such as calcium, phosphorus, sodium, and potassium that circulate in your blood. Your kidneys also produce the hormone, which controls blood pressure, makes red blood cells, and helps keep your bones strong. The sooner you know that you have kidney disease, the more you can protect your kidneys.
