Overview

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a serious and growing public health problem in the United States. CKD is a condition in which the kidneys become damaged, decreasing their ability to filter the blood and remove water and waste products. Wastes then build up in the blood, harming the body. When kidney function decreases to less than 15 percent, a patient has kidney failure. Kidney failure that requires dialysis or kidney transplant is often referred to as end-stage renal disease (ESRD).

This book provides brief overviews of NKDEP’s accomplishments and current
activities as they relate to various components of the Chronic Care Model.
