What is Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) ?
CKD is characterized by gradual  and permanent loss of kidney  function over time. Upto 15 %  of general population may have some degree of CKD. One out of ten patients will have CKD.

What are the symptoms and signs of CKD?
Even if 60 to 70 % of kidney is damaged one doesn’t have any symptoms. Beyond this
 vague symptoms  like swelling of the legs, puffiness of the  face, anorexia, loss of sexual functions , tiredness, aneamia etc.,  are experienced.  Patients with CKD are grouped into  5 stages based on evidence of existing kidney function assessed by Glomerular Filtration Rate (GFR). CKD is usually asymptomatic and has to be looked for.

What are the stages of the CKD ?



Why should we find out CKD at an earlier stage?

If medications are taken after early detection of CKD, progression of CKD from stage 1 to
  stage 5  can be delayed. It is important to identify and control co-morbid  conditions like diabetes , hypertension, urinary infection, stones  and to treat the complications of the CKD like aneamia, low calcium  etc., to improve the quality of life  and to  prevent  the progression of CKD into dialysis and kidney transplantation.

How can we screen for CKD?

Screening for the CKD can be done by simple urine analysis and some
  simple blood tests in phase I. Those who are  found to have abnormalities in the Phase I screening test  (@ 15%) are subjected to further blood tests  and Ultra Sound Scan (Phase II) and further appropriate treatment modalities can be suggested.

What Should I do if I am detected to have CKD?

Your have the option to choose your Doctor/Hospital for further evaluation. For those who need further evaluation and treatment ‘Limit Number’
  and ‘Limit Amount’ support is planned  by CKF (on economic criteria – with the available funds).

Why ‘SKP’
 by Lions District  324 E4?

Unlike AIDS,
  Cancer and Heart Diseases, CKD has not attracted attention from the major organizations. CKD is a disease of all socioeconomic status, mainly of the lower strata. CKD needs chronic treatment unlike  one time treatment for eye or heart, which makes it difficult to implement. CKD will progress,  but progression can be delayed  and costly treatment like dialysis and transplantation can be avoided / delayed  if detected before stage III and treated regularly.

Congratulations Lions District
  324 E4 for the SKP Project !
Let us implement this for the benefit of CKD Patients.
