We understand the importance of providing comprehensive healthcare services, which is why we are dedicated to raising awareness about Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) and offering advanced treatment options for patients.
What is Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD)?
Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is a progressive condition characterized by the gradual loss of kidney function over time. The kidneys play a vital role in filtering waste products and excess fluids from the blood, as well as regulating blood pressure, balancing electrolyte levels, and producing hormones essential for red blood cell production. When CKD develops, these crucial functions are compromised, leading to a range of health issues.
Causes of Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD):
The causes of Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) can vary, and understanding them is important for effective management. Here are common causes of CKD:
High blood sugar levels can damage the kidneys over time.
- Hypertension (High Blood Pressure):
Uncontrolled hypertension strains the kidneys.
Inflammation of the kidney filters can lead to CKD.
- Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD):
Inherited condition causing kidney cysts.
- Kidney Infections and Obstructions:
Repeated infections or urinary tract obstructions can contribute to CKD.
- Autoimmune Diseases:
Conditions like lupus and rheumatoid arthritis can affect the kidneys.
- Prolonged Medication Use:
Certain medications, especially NSAIDs, can cause kidney damage.
- Genetic Disorders:
Rare genetic disorders can directly impact the kidneys.
- Urinary Tract Abnormalities:
Structural issues in the urinary tract increase the risk of kidney damage.
- Other Factors:
Smoking, obesity, older age, family history, and toxin exposure can contribute to CKD.
Signs and Symptoms of CKD:
Early stages of CKD may not exhibit any noticeable symptoms. However, as the disease progresses, patients may experience the following:
- Fatigue and weakness
- Swelling in the hands, legs, or ankles
- Changes in urine frequency and volume
- Blood in urine
- Foamy urine
- Difficulty sleeping
- Poor appetite and unintended weight loss
- Muscle cramps and twitches
- Persistent itching
- Hypertension (high blood pressure)
