Episode Description:

The Centers for Disease Control estimates that more than 20 million Americans – about 10 percent of the adult population – have chronic kidney disease. Adults with diabetes and high blood pressure, two of the most prevalent medical conditions in the country, are at higher risk for developing CKD than others. The chances of having CKD also increase with age, and as the population ages, the incidence of CKD is likely to increase. What causes this condition? How is it detected? What implications does it have for overall health? Can it be prevented? And what are the treatments available for it?
