Kidney disease generally has a hidden start and evolves without symptoms, because at the beginning even for 10-15 years do not cause complains, and the firs symptoms only present themselves only when the kidney’ function has already seriously damaged. It characterized by gradual, continuous, constant deterioration, decrease of the kidney’s function, which finally results a so-called end-stage kidney failure with the damaging of the other organs due to the accumulation of toxic materials.
