Gradual decrease in the functioning of your kidneys for a long period is termed as chronic kidney disease (CKD). It is also known as chronic renal disease or chronic kidney failure. As we all know kidneys plays major role in maintaining our BP, levels of chemicals by filtering unwanted substances from our body fluids and so on. When kidneys fail to filter properly, it leads to excess buildup of chemicals, electrolytes and other unwanted substances in our body fluids. This buildup of unwanted substances can lead to complications like high BP, weak bones, malnutrition, nerve damage and so on. Chronic kidney disease does not happen suddenly, instead it happens gradually. In long run this CKD can lead to kidney failure.
