Chronic Kidney Disease and

Your Skin


Healthy skin provides a barrier between the inside of the body and the outside environment. Skin problems indicate a lot of health problems and one of them is chronic kidney problems. Skin disorders associated with chronic kidney disease (CKD) can markedly affect a patient's quality of life and can negatively impact their mental and physical health. They are considered to be an inflammatory systemic disease rather than a local skin disorder. Biomarkers of inflammation are increased and an imbalance might be involved in the complex pathogenesis of the disease.
