Kidney failure/ESRD

What causes kidney failure?

Kidney failure, also called end-stage renal disease (ESRD), is the last stage of chronic kidney disease. When your kidneys fail, it means they have stopped working well enough for you to survive without dialysis or a kidney transplant.

AKF's website explains the main causes and symptoms of kidney failure.
