What is chronic kidney disease?

They don't function

Kidney_disease
Chronic kidney disease (CKD), also known as chronic renal disease, is a progressive loss in renal function over a period of months or years. Chronic kidney disease is identified by a blood test for creatinine. Higher levels of creatinine indicate a lower glomerular filtration rate and as a result a decreased capability of the kidneys to excrete waste products.

No

Protein
You're simply leaking protein into your urine. The most common single cause is that a few percent of people do this just by standing up. It's easy to rule this in or out and your phyiscian will probably begin your workup this way.
