Institute: National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK)
Have you just been told you have chronic kidney disease (CKD), or do you have unanswered questions about CKD? Read the National Kidney Disease Education Program's new brochure, Chronic Kidney Disease: What Does it Mean for Me?, to find out what CKD is, how it can affect your health, what medicines you may need to take, and how to track your test results.
