Your kidneys filter out waste and extra fluid from your body. Kidney disease describes what happens when your kidneys no longer do this job properly.

There are two types of kidney disease: acute kidney failure (a curable condition where the kidneys can’t filter waste from the blood) and chronic kidney disease (a more serious disease that can’t be cured—but can be treated—and that leads to renal failure). Renal is a medical term for kidney, and end-stage renal disease (ESRD) would require dialysis or a kidney transplant.
