Kidney Disease

Kidney Disease, more formally known as Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD), is a worldwide health crisis that cannot be understated. Approximately 10% of the worldwide population is affected by chronic kidney disease (CKD) and millions die each year because they do not have access to affordable treatment.

Some kidney problems can be early signs of chronic kidney disease (CKD). Finding and treating these problems early can help prevent CKD from becoming kidney failure. Other kidney problems can lead to CKD if they are not treated (if you have been diagnosed already with CKD, read this article for some critical information of things you need to be aware of). Health issues with kidneys go beyond CKD. Below is an ongoing list of common kidney diseases. 

  • Diabetic kidney disease
  • Glomerulonephritis
  • Hematuria
  • Kidney stones
  • Kidney Failure
