A kidney disease is an illness or disorder that affects the functions of the kidneys with regard to filtration, re-absorption and secretion. Kidney diseases can be hereditary, congenital or acquired.

About 2, 00,000 persons in India enter terminal kidney failure each year. Millions of other people suffer from lesser types of kidney diseases.

With this in view, voluntary associations such as the National Kidney Foundation (India) have been established to cater to the ever-growing need for information and counseling on kidney disease.

Chronic kidney disease occurs when one suffers from gradual and usually permanent loss of kidney function over time. This happens gradually, usually months to years. Chronic kidney disease is divided into five stages of increasing severity (see Table 1 below).

The term "renal" refers to the kidney, so another name for kidney failure is "renal failure." Mild kidney disease is often called renal insufficiency.

With loss of kidney function, there is an accumulation of water; waste; and toxic substances, in the body, that are normally excreted by the kidney.

Loss of kidney function also causes other problems such as anemia, high blood pressure, acidosis (excessive acidity of body fluids), disorders of cholesterol and fatty acids, and bone disease.

Treatment of Kidney Diseases

Some kidney diseases can be successfully treated and others progress to advanced kidney failure, requiring dialysis and/or transplantation.

For example, kidney infections and kidney stones can often be successfully treated. Chronic inflammation of the glomerulus (glomerulonephritis) is the most common kidney disease, which slowly progresses to kidney failure.

Your doctor may recommend certain medications or suggest a specific diet for you.

Most people can improve their health by taking simple measures such as not smoking, eating healthily, and exercising regularly.
Once you've been diagnosed with kidney failure you'll be referred to a medical team that specializes in the care of renal patients.

The nephrologists (doctors who specialize in kidneys), renal nurses, and other medical personnel will monitor you closely.
