Every 1 out of 10 people approximately, has chronic kidney disease (CKD) globally. Continuous treatment and care are required for the entire lifespan of this weakening condition.

Kidney Disease is a chronic disease that does not spread by any contact. 

What is CKD?

Chronic kidney disease is a health condition that primarily occurs when the function of the kidney deteriorates gradually over a longer period of months or years.  

Filtering excess fluids and waste materials from the blood and even excreting them from the body of an individual as urine is considered the primary function of the kidney.

When the kidneys are entirely damaged, they might not function properly and lastly, it leads the body to accumulate fluids and toxins. To get the finest treatment for chronic kidney disease, arrive at the best nephrology hospital in Jaipur.

Stages of CKD

CKD has several stages that range from mild to severe.

There may not be any symptoms or signs at the initial stages, but as this disease progresses, some of the symptoms may include:

  •  Fatigue

  •  Nausea

  •  Vomiting

  •  Weight loss, especially unintended or unusual.

  •  Swelling in the legs and ankles 

Risk factors for CKD

The most delicate organ of the body is the kidneys and these are thoroughly controlled by the entire body health of an individual. There are a variety of hazards or preceding health conditions that can be considered as the risk factors of CKD which include:  

  • High blood pressure

How can an individual get knowledge if he/she has CKD?

Regular screening for kidney disease is highly important, particularly for those who are at greater risk because of illnesses that include diabetes, hypertension or high blood pressure, or an unbalanced and unhealthy lifestyle.
