Chronic kidney disease refers to a condition of irreversible kidney damage that may progress to end stage renal disease (ESRD). Although ESRD usually occurs in adulthood, a small group of children also develop the condition, mainly due to inherited and congenital disorders. Lidwien Tjaden investigates how ESRD and its treatment affects quality of life and social functioning in children.
