Dr. Fred McCurdy answered
44 years experience Pediatric Nephrology and Dialysis
Differences: Acute is something abrupt and may go away. ESRD is end-stage renal disease and will not go away. It will only get worse and requires significant involvement on the part of a bunch of highly trained/skilled healthcare providers/professionals (MDs, nurses, dietitians, etc.)
