Kidney Disease
Kidney Dictionary


NIDDK Kidney
This dictionary defines words that are often used when people talk or write about kidney diseases. It is designed for people who have kidney diseases and their families and friends.

The words are listed in alphabetical order. Some words have many meanings; only those meanings that relate to kidney diseases are included. Words that appear in bold italic are defined elsewhere in the dictionary. A term will refer the reader to another definition only when the second definition gives additional information about a topic that is directly related to the first term.

This information is not a substitute for a visit to your doctor. Talk to a health professional if you have a kidney problem.
