Clinical and Health Status and Prevailing Complications among Chronic Renal Failure Patients
AbstractRenal disease may be a part of systemic, inherited or drug induced disease or result of an infection, affecting glomeruli or blood vessels supplying blood to the kidney, renal tubules, interstitium, epithelial lining and urinary tract. Chronic renal disease is defined by the level of kidney function and the evidence of kidney damage. The National Kidney Foundation (Kidney Disease Outcomes Quality Initiatives) (NKF-K/DOQI), clinical practice guidelines for chronic renal disease (2002), identified five stages of renal disease defined by the glomerular filtration rate1. Progression of disease, characterized by a sharp decline in the GFR leads to appearance of clinical signs in the patients.
