What is kidney disease?

Kidney disease results from damage to nephrons, the tiny structures inside your kidneys. The nephrons function to filter blood, and remove waste products and excess water from your system.

Usually, the damage occurs in both kidneys and happens very gradually over years. Unfortunately, there are no obvious symptoms during the early stages of the disease, so you don’t know it’s happening. As the disease progresses, levels of fluid and wastes dangerously accumulate in your body.

When the kidneys totally fail or do not work well enough to maintain life, you will need to undergo dialysis or kidney transplantation.
