Understanding Renal Disease

Understanding Renal Disease 

Renal disease is the failure of the kidneys to perform their normal function. There are 2 broad categories of renal disease: acute renal failure (ARF), and chronic kidney disease (CKD). The resident’s history, physical examination, signs and symptoms, and test results will allow the physician to differentiate acute from chronic kidney disease. As a healthcare provider, you have a duty to know the signs and symptoms of renal disease, to assess it quickly, and to act appropriately to ensure the resident’s best outcome. You also play a significant role in renal disease education and prevention.
