Chronic Renal Failure

Chronic renal failure often leads to End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD), which is defined as progressive bilateral deterioration of renal function resulting in uremia and eventually death.12 Uremia is the toxic condition produced by the retention of urinary constituents in the blood. Some of the manifestations of ESRD are increased risk of infection, bleeding and bone fractures.
