ESKD is the final, permanent stage of chronic kidney disease. It means the kidneys can no longer function on their own. ESKD cannot be reversed and is life-threatening if left untreated. But thanks to new care models offered by healthcare champions, having ESKD doesn't automatically mean dialysis. You’ll be connected to personalized services that can help make your life better.
If you do need dialysis or a kidney transplant, these measures may help you live longer. You can also choose conservative care to manage your symptoms to aim for the best quality of life during your remaining time.
