Your chronic kidney disease (CKD) is advancing to the point where you will need dialysis. What is dialysis? How does dialysis work? What does a dialysis machine look like? The Kidney Campus website has been developed for people just like you, who are living with CKD.
Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a condition where your kidneys gradually lose their ability to function correctly. Although CKD is irreversible, it is treatable.
