Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) And End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD)

Your kidneys remove waste and fluid, control blood pressure, produce red blood cells, maintain bone health and control the pH levels of your body. If you have Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) or have reached End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) and require dialysis treatment, you can feel in every cell of your body the fact that your kidneys are not working.

You feel tired, suffer from headaches, have nausea and potentially restless legs syndrome (RLS) due to the build up of toxins in your body. CKD and ESRD are disabling conditions that can affect your quality of life, your ability to get a good night's sleep and can prevent you from working.

ESRD Qualifies You For SSDI

ESRD is the only disability that automatically qualifies you for SSDI. It is extraordinarily rare that your claim for SSDI will be denied if you have ESRD. You must have proper medical documentation from your nephrologist and dialysis unit to prove that you have CKD/ESRD and require dialysis. Whether you chose hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis, the life-sustaining treatments will be time-consuming. While some kidney patients do want to continue work, many others are unable. Dialysis treatments do help filter waste and toxins from your system, but the treatment often wipes you out for several hours.
