The most common kidney diseases are chronic, meaning they cannot be “cured” but can be well-managed. With the exception of acute cases, it is not uncommon for a person to treat his or her chronic kidney disease (CKD) and never require dialysis or a transplant. The important thing is to be properly diagnosed and treated by the proper professionals.
Unfortunately, when not properly diagnosed or cared for, CKD can result in end-stage renal failure. The only way a patient can survive this is through continued dialysis and ultimately a kidney transplant. If you believe you are a victim of medical negligence, and as a result are suffering from kidney/renal failure, our firm can help you.
