The overall prevalence of Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) in the general population is approximately 15 percent, but more than 1/3 of the US population are bordering on the initial phases of kidney failure.

High blood pressure and diabetes are the main causes of CKD. Almost half of individuals with CKD also have diabetes and/or self-reported cardiovascular disease (CVD).

Nearly 37 million Americans have Stages 1-5 kidney failure. However, 96% of those with early kidney disease (stages 1 and 2) donโ€™t even know they have CKD. Of these, 468,000 individuals are on dialysis, and roughly 193,000 live with a functioning kidney transplant.

Kidney disease often has no symptoms in its early stages and can go undetected until it is very advanced. (For this reason, kidney disease is often referred to as a โ€œsilent disease.โ€)

Some of the symptoms of kidney failure are:

โ€ข Itching
โ€ข Muscle cramps
โ€ข Nausea and vomiting
โ€ข Not feeling hungry
โ€ข Swelling in the hands and feet
โ€ข Back pain
โ€ข Urinating more or less than normal
โ€ข Trouble breathing
โ€ข Trouble sleeping

Once your kidneys have failed, you will need to start dialysis or have a kidney transplant to live.

Compared to Caucasians, ESRD prevalence is about 3.7 times greater in African Americans, 1.4 times greater in Native Americans, and 1.5 times greater in Asian Americans.

The overall prevalence of CKD increased from 12 percent to 14 percent between 1988 and 1994 and from 1999 to 2004 but has remained relatively stable since 2004.

While you can live out your life with relatively few or no symptoms in Stage 3 kidney failure, you would be well advised to make some dietary and lifestyle changes to preserve your kidney function at this point, otherwise you risk a decline to Stage 4 or worseโ€ฆdialysis. This is why it is so critical to catch declining kidney function before it gets too late.

This is my arm hooked up to a dialysis machine a few months ago (before I received a kidney transplant). I did this 3 times per week, 4 hours each time, for 6 years! Those days were a complete waste because I was so exhausted after dialysis all I could do was go home and sleep for 3 hours or longer to recover.
