In brief: Dialysis /Transplant

Ersd/kidney failure means most of kidney function has been lost + that subject will die unless they undergo dialysis or receive a kidney transplant.
Means that kidney/s are unable to remove the nitrogenous waste products produced by your body produced by metabolising ingested protein + spent muscle. Esrd also defined as inadequate function to sustain lif or < 15 ml/min. Glomerular filtration rate.

In brief: ESRD

End stage renal disease is the worst severe disease of the function of the kidney and when pts need either a transplant or dialysis to survive.
It is measured as creatinine clearence of less than 15, usually the BUN ( uremic nitrogen) is around 100 and creatinine may be around 4.0 pt may have symptoms like nausea and vomiting, generalized itching, tremors or specific tremor called asterixis.

In brief: Esrd

It means your GFR (renal function) is less than 15 (normal is >90.
60-90 is borderline. <60 is renal insufficieny) . Esrd is basically to the point you will need dialysis.
