Chronic Kidney Diseases
Renal conditions that can get worse over time are termed as chronic kidney diseases (CKD). This results in the loss of kidney functions. Most of the individuals are prone to CKD. Some of the common complications might be anaemia, cardiovascular diseases, nerve damage, etc. The risk of being diagnosed with CKD increases in patients with diabetes, hypertension, and a history of kidney diseases. CKD involves 5 stages, starting from stage 1 which is mild kidney damage to stage 5 which is complete kidney damage. CKDs can be prevented by bringing changes to an individual’s lifestyle, dietary habits, limiting alcohol consumption, etc. Urine tests, eGFR, and blood pressure analysis are some common diagnostic methods to detect CKD.
