Chronic renal failure (CRF, or "chronic kidney failure", CKF, or "chronic kidney disease", CKD) is the slow progressive loss of renal function over a period of months or years and defined as an abnormally low glomerular filtration rate, which is usually determined indirectly by the creatinine level in blood serum.
According to the annual reports and calculation of the World Health Organization (WHO), every year, some 800-1,200 people out of 1 mln. suffer from this disease around the World, with hemodialysis being prescribed to about 600 of the patients. Diabetes mellitus is what most frequently leads to complications of chronic renal failure.
