Causes Chronic Kidney Disease

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a long-term condition that involves a gradual loss of kidney function. As CKD progresses, the kidneys lose their ability to remove toxins and excess fluid from the body effectively. 

What can cause chronic kidney disease?

The causes of chronic kidney disease (CKD) can vary and even be unclear for some patients. CKD is often caused by other pre-existing health conditions. Here, we will focus on the most common causes. 

Factors that increase the risk of kidney disease

Apart from these common causes of kidney disease, there are other factors that put you at increased risk of developing CKD and also of your kidney function getting worse more quickly. As early-stage CKD rarely displays any symptoms, it is vital to identify the risk factors and monitor your health accordingly.
