More than half of older adults over the age of 75 are thought to have kidney disease (National Kidney Foundation 2014).

Kidney disease is often silent and occurs when the nephrons, the tiny blood-filtering units of the kidney, become damaged. Damage to the nephrons causes a build-up of toxic waste and fluids within the body. Chronic kidney disease (CKD) can be defined as the loss of one-third of kidney function (MLHC 2018).
