UPI reports chronic kidney disease has been described as a "global killer in plain sight." Researchers estimate that chronic kidney disease caused 1.23 million deaths worldwide in 2017. The evidence is clear: Many nations' health systems cannot keep pace with the dialysis demand. Cases far exceed and are well beyond the ability of those systems to handle. Co-author Theo Vos, Professor of Health Metrics Sciences Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, University of Washington High blood pressure and diabetes are considered the primary causes of chronic kidney disease. However, there are other health conditions that have been linked with its development. Experts say environmental exposure to toxic substances may also play a role in some cases. Chronic kidney disease was the 12th leading cause of death globally in 2017, up from 17th in 1990. In all, there were nearly 700 million cases of chronic kidney disease in 2017.
