Kidney Disease: Types, Symptoms, Treatment, and PreventionAuthor(s): Ebraham Wyatt*
Kidney disease, also known as renal disease, is a medical condition that affects the kidneys’ ability to function properly. The two most common types of kidney disease are chronic kidney disease (CKD) and acute kidney injury (AKI), each with different causes and symptoms. Treatment for kidney disease varies depending on the type and severity of the condition, ranging from lifestyle changes to medications and dialysis. Prevention is key, with a healthy lifestyle and management of other medical conditions being crucial in reducing the risk of kidney disease. Early detection and treatment of kidney disease can help manage the condition and improve quality of life.
