Preventing chronic kidney disease thanks to knowledge of your DNA

 The kidneys remove waste products from the blood. If a person is affected by chronic kidney disease (CKD), they retain less than 40% of their kidney function, as the kidney filters are damaged. This can be caused by, amongst other things, inflammation in the kidneys, diabetes, high blood pressure and hardening of the arteries. Symptoms of CKD may include tiredness, general malaise, cramps and itching. People with CKD are also at an increased risk of cardiovascular diseases.

Chronic kidney disease and heredity

The risk of chronic kidney disease is determined to some extent by hereditary factors. To date it has been scientifically proven that a number of genes play a role in this. On the basis of your DNA it is therefore possible to see clearly whether you have an increased or reduced risk of chronic kidney disease.
