Chronic Kidney Disease

According to the National Kidney Foundation, more than 26 million American adults are living with chronic kidney disease (CKD), a progressive, usually permanent loss of kidney function, and millions more are at risk.

As CKD progresses, it can lead to kidney failure, or end stage renal disease (ESRD), which requires a kidney transplant or dialysis to stay alive.  Chronic kidney failure is a condition that affects about 1.9 million individuals worldwide.  Learn more
