Chronic Kidney Disease

Chronic kidney disease (ESKD) is the last stage of long-term (chronic)kidney disease. This is when your kidneys can no longer support your body  needs.. End-stage kidney disease is also called end-stage renal disease (ESRD). The kidneys remove waste and excess water from the body. ESRD occurs when the kidneys are no longer able to work at a level needed for day-to-day life.The most common causes of ESRD in the United States are diabetes and high blood pressure. These conditions can affect your kidneys.ESRD almost always comes after chronic kidney disease. The kidneys may slowly stop working during a period of 10 to 20 years before end-stage disease results. End-stage renal disease (ESRD) affects more than 1500 people per million population in countries with a high prevalence, such as Japan, Taiwan, and the US. Approximately two-thirds of people with ESRD receive haemodialysis, one quarter have kidney transplants, and one tenth receive peritoneal dialysis. Renal diseases can have varying lengths of impacts on you as an individua. Citations are important for a journal to get impact factor. Impact factor is a measure reflecting the average number of citations to recent articles published in the journal. The impact of the journal is influenced by impact factor, the journals with high impact factor are considered more important than those with lower ones. This information can be published in our peer reviewed journal with impact factors and are calculated using citations not only from research articles but also review articles (which tend to receive more citations), editorials, letters, meeting abstracts, short communications, and case reports
