Chronic Kidney Disease Program

Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is a progressive loss of renal function over a period of months or years. Causes of chronic kidney disease are diabetes mellitus, hypertension, or glomerulonephritis, urinary tract infection, exposure to some toxic substances, herbal or some medication.

Overview
If it is not properly treated, kidney function may reduce overtime leading to end-stage of renal failure which needs hemodialysis or kidney transplantation. The diminished kidney function brings various complications such as water and electrolyte imbalance, anemia and the accumulation of waste products in the body. These symptoms can be controlled and prevented if the patient has been regularly monitored by a specialist.
