Chronic Kidney Disease, commonly called CKD, is a progressive loss in renal function over a period of months or years. It is differentiated from acute kidney disease in that the reduction in kidney function must be present for over 3 months. The symptoms of worsening kidney function are not specific, and might include feeling generally unwell and experiencing a reduced appetite.
Here the article aims at offering more details about CKD, hoping this can help you take better care of yourself and choose a more suitable therapy. Contact ONLINE DOCTOR to get more details about this or other useful information quickly and directly for free.
Often, chronic kidney disease is diagnosed as a result of screening of people known to be at risk of kidney problems, such as those with high blood pressure or diabetes and those with a blood relative with CKD. This disease may also be identified when it leads to one of its recognized complications, such as cardiovascular disease, anemia, or pericarditis.
Besides, creatinine level is an important indicator that can be used to check patient’s renal function in clinic. However, creatinine level is closely related to GFR (Glomerular Filtration Rate). When patient's GFR drops into normal 1/3, patient’s disease condition is not optimistic.
The problem is that creatinine is not a sensitive indicator. So sometimes, when patient’s GFR dropped into 38, the creatinine level may be not increased obviously. But this does not means that patient’s renal injury is not serious. Taking timely and effective treatments is necessary to delay the progression of renal damage.
