The final stage of Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is kidney failure, or end-stage renal disease (ESRD). Without treatment for ESRD, waste builds in the body and patients can die from complications within a few weeks.
In order to improve outcomes and save on costs associated with CKD and ESRD, several challenges with care must be addressed. Ultimately, treatments must be made more patient-centric.
In this white paper, we will be discussing:
- Challenges leading to increased costs and poor outcomes for CKD individuals
- Startups that are working to alleviate the challenges
- Investment recommendations for the CKD market
