A permanent damage or decline in kidney function as seen by elevated serum creatinine for more than 3 months is called CKD. It is a permanent condition which is not reversible and we can only slow the progression in some patients.
In a CKD there may not be a symptom till 90% of the kidney fails and this takes away the opportunity from getting treated, how ever knowing the symptoms of kidney disease can help people detect it early enough to get treatment.
Symptoms can include:
How can I find out if I have kidney disease?Kidney disease can be found through lab tests or by symptoms.
If I have signs of kidney disease, what should I do?
After you have basic screening tests done, if you have signs of kidney disease, you should ask for a referral to a nephrologist, a specialist in treating kidney disease.
