What is End-stage Renal Disease?

Renal failure (or kidney failure) occurs when the kidneys are not able to perform their normal functions. It usually occurs in middle-aged and older people. The kidneys are two bean-shaped organs on either side of the spine in the lower back. Their main functions are to remove waste from the body and to balance the water and mineral content of the blood by filtering waste, minerals, and water. The waste and water combine to form urine.
