Kidney disease: Chronic kidney disease (CKD) cannot be cured, it can be managed. There are various stages of CKD and many causes of it. Some CKD is due to diseases that are may progress despite treatment, such as polycystic kidney disease. Other causes of CKD, such as hypertension, can be treated and managed with more success. Speak to a nephrologist for more information about a specific cause of CKD. Good luck.
