LifeCycle Kidney Research Program

The spectrum of renal diseases is very wide. Kidney problems can present acutely in a previously healthy individual or can present when the problem has been present for a few months or years. With acute presentations the insult may be reversible and the renal function may return to normal. When the renal insufficiency becomes long-term, we use the term ‘chronic kidney disease’ (CKD).
