Understanding Kidney Disease

Kidney disease, also known as renal disease, refers to a condition in which the kidneys are damaged and are unable to filter blood effectively. The kidneys play a crucial role in maintaining the body's overall health by removing waste products and excess fluids from the blood, regulating electrolyte levels, and producing hormones.

Types of Kidney Disease:

Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD):

A long-term condition where the kidneys gradually lose their function over time. It often develops slowly and may not show symptoms until later stages.

Acute Kidney Injury (AKI):

A sudden onset of kidney damage or failure, usually caused by an injury, infection, or certain medications. It requires prompt medical attention.

Common Causes:

Diabetes
Hypertension (high blood pressure)
Glomerulonephritis (inflammation of the kidney's filtering units)
Polycystic kidney disease (a genetic condition causing cysts to form in the kidneys)
Infections
Autoimmune diseases

Symptoms:

Fatigue
Swelling in the legs, ankles, or feet
Changes in urine output or color
