Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is a serious public health problem, and can be considered an "epidemic" in growth. Obesity, hyperlipidemia and smoking accelerate the progression culminating in need of treatment. Life expectancy at every age is reduced, the risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke are increased, and the onus is on the individual and society. Thus, this review discusses the main aspects of epidemiology and mortality for chronic kidney disease in developed and developing countries as well as substitution treatment approaches needed when the disease reaches the terminal stage, as an attempt to increase the understanding of the theme among researchers
