I was diagnosed with CKD about six years ago and am in Stage 4 and the low end and looks like dialysis is on the horizon. I have all the symptoms t and I also had my urethra enlarged about 20 years ago.

Very good explanations but omits the most important point: what is kidney disease, ie is it clogging of the nephrons, is it necrosis of parts of the kidney etc.
