Chronic Kidney Disease

WHAT IS CHRONIC KIDNEY DISEASE?

Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is a long-term illness that cannot be cured—only managed. There are five stages of kidney disease, leading to kidney failure. When a person reaches Stage 5, the kidneys have failed. This last phase is called End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD).

There are only two possible treatments for ESRD: dialysis or a kidney transplant.
