The Stages of Kidney Disease


Chronic Kidney Disease, or CKD, is a life-long condition where the kidneys are unable to properly filter waste products and fluid from the blood. Learn how this disease progresses through 5 stages, depending on the level of kidney function, with Stage 5, or End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD), being the most serious. With ESRD, a patient must undergo dialysis or receive a kidney transplant in order to survive.
