Chronic kidney disease (CKD) involves gradual loss of functioning of kidneys. The normal function of kidneys are to filter out and excrete wastes, and excess fluids from the blood are excreted through urine. However, when an individual is suffering from chronic kidney disease, kidneys cannot perform their natural function and wastes, fluids, and electrolytes build up in the body in excess amounts. Signs and symptoms of chronic kidney disease are not apparent until kidney function becomes significantly impaired. The supportive treatment of chronic kidney disease includes delaying the disease progression and kidney damage.
