There is no question life with chronic kidney disease (CKD) is challenging and at times overwhelming. It is because the nature of the disease and the disease process, not only affects one's health, but quality of life. Studies have shown up to 40% of individuals who have end stage renal disease (ESRD) have signs and symptoms of depression.
