Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is characterized by a gradual loss of kidney function that happens over time and from the point of view of modern conventional medicine is considered to be an incurable and irreversible disease. The main risk factors attributing to CKR are diabetes mellitus, hypertension, glomerulonephritis, renal artery stenosis and family history of kidney disease. Affecting approximately 1 in 10 people of a Global population CKD imposes a significant threat to individuals’ lives and carries a major financial burden to patients and healthcare systems. CKD is the cause of at least 1 million deaths per year globally and consume nearly 6% of all medical expenses. In this article we discuss possibilities of disease control and reversal from the perspective of Biological Regenerative Medicine.
