Understanding Chronic Kidney Disease

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a condition in which the kidneys gradually lose function over time, leading to a buildup of waste and fluid in the body. It is a progressive condition that can eventually lead to kidney failure, which requires dialysis or a kidney transplant to sustain life.

Early diagnosis and treatment of CKD are crucial in slowing down the progression of the disease. The best treatment for kidney diseases in NCR may vary depending on the severity and underlying cause of the condition. However, treatments may include lifestyle changes such as diet and exercise, medication, and in some cases, dialysis or kidney transplant.

The most common causes of CKD are high blood pressure and diabetes. Other causes include autoimmune diseases, genetic conditions, kidney infections, and prolonged use of certain medications.

Symptoms of CKD can include:

  • Fatigue
  • Swelling in the feet and ankles
  • Shortness of breath
  • Itchy skin
  • Poor appetite
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Muscle cramps
  • Changes in urine output or color
