According to Assoc Prof Dr Lim Soo Kun, consultant nephrologist and physician at University Malaya Medical Centre. CKD is a condition characterised by a gradual loss of kidney function over time. Our kidneys remove waste like urea, ammonia and toxic substances from the body. When kidneys do not work properly, harmful waste and fluids are not excreted, but are left in the body, leading to a condition known as uraemia. If untreated, it will soon lead to end-stage renal failure that may require dialysis or kidney transplantation. Besides that, it may cause blood pressure to rise, and prevent the body from making enough red blood cells.
