35 years experience in Pediatric Nephrology and Dialysis
Years: Depending on the actual disorder chronic kidney disease (ckd) can take months to years to reach the point where kidney replacement therapy becomes necessary. Treatment to control blood pressure, bone mineral balance and other complications of CKD can keep the kidneys functioning for a longer time.
