In brief: Chronic bronchitis

Well- I came up with the answer because breathing is quintessential for life.
Not that kidneys are any less important but your question was what could be more fatal. If you were to ask what could be more debilitating or what could compromise quality of life more-- it has to be CKD stage 4. They are yet to invent dialyzersctgat you could carry in your purse like an inhaler.
