Chronic Kidney Disease

The incidence of Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is on the rise. It is due to a number of reasons, but the most common are chronic diabetes and uncontrolled high blood pressure.

The GFR which represents the glomerular filtration rate may be decreased below 60 with a certain calculation. This places the individual in chronic kidney disease stage III. However, there may be reasons such as dehydration, excessive protein intake, or excessive protein breakdown which may lead to this decreased GFR.
