The kidneys are are susceptible to a variety of illnesses and disorders. Although many kidney diseases can be successfully treated, early detection is crucial, and symptoms of kidney disease often go unnoticed until the late stages of an illness. The National Kidney Foundation estimates that 26 million Americans have chronic kidney disease and that millions more are at risk and do not know it. The ENCYCLOPEDIA OF KIDNEY DISEASES AND DISORDERS contains more than 100 detailed articles covering all aspects of the kidneys and kidney diseases. This comprehensive new A-to-Z resource explains how the kidneys work, as well as what diseases and disorders affect them, how they can be diagnosed, and how they can be treated.
