Our Kidneys.

Kidneys are bean shaped organs about 10 to 12 cm in length situated on either side of the backbone. Each kidney comprises of approximately 1 million nephrons which are the functional units, primarily involved in filtration of wastes besides many other functions.

CKD - Chronic Kidney Disease

CKD is an abnormality in kidney function of more than three months duration. This results in accumulation of waste products and water in the body. It is very often progressive with gradual worsening of the kidney function leading to end stage kidney disease necessitating dialysis or transplantation.
