Statistics on kidney disease indicate that nearly 10% of the general population has some form of CKD or chronic kidney disorder. In India, nearly 175 thousand people reach Stage V of CKD suffering from kidney failure that requires regular dialysis or kidney transplant. Nearly 60-70 % of the CKD cases are estimated to result from hypertension and diabetes. The best treatment option for CKD is kidney transplant and dialysis; however it is often not available or not affordable for many Indians. So, prevention is better than cure. Since it takes nearly 10-15 years for CKD to develop, it is very much imperative that people become aware about the disease, its progression and take steps for prevention to live a healthy life.
