Kidney Diseases

Acute kidney injury (AKI), formerly known as acute renal failure is a syndrome characterized by the rapid loss of the kidney's excretory function and is typically diagnosed by the accumulation of end products of nitrogen metabolism  (Urea and Creatinine) or decreased urine output, or both. AKI may lead to a number of complications, including metabolic acidosis, high potassium levels, uremia, changes in body fluid balance, and effects on other organ systems, including death. People who have experienced AKI may have an increased risk of chronic kidney disease in the future. Management includes treatment of the underlying cause and supportive care, such as renal replacement therapy.

Chronic Kidney Diseases includes complications like high blood pressureanaemia (low blood count), weak bones, poor nutritional health and nerve damage. Also, kidney disease increases your risk of having heart and blood vessel disease. These problems may happen slowly over a long period of time. The two main causes of chronic kidney disease are diabetes and high blood pressure. High blood pressure, or hypertension, occurs when the pressure of your blood against the walls of your blood vessels increases.

End-stage kidney disease is also called end-stage renal disease (ESRD). End-stage kidney disease is the last stage of chronic kidney disease. This is when your kidneys can no longer support your body's needs. Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is when there is permanent damage to your kidneys.   This is when the kidneys do not work well enough for you to live.  If this happens, you will need dialysis or a kidney transplant to live.
