Kidney diseases is a “hidden epidemic” affecting 850 million people worldwide. It occurs when the kidneys become damaged and can’t perform their function. Damage may be caused by diabetes, high blood pressure, and various other chronic conditions. Kidney diseases can lead to other health problems, including weak bones, nerve damage, and malnutrition. There are two main types of kidney diseases: short-term (acute kidney failure) and lifelong (chronic kidney failure). If the diseases get worse over time, the kidneys may stop working completely. This means that dialysis will be required to perform the function of the kidneys or kidney transplant. Dialysis is a treatment that filters and purifies the blood using a machine. It can’t cure kidney diseases, but it can prolong the life.
