The forgotten side of CKD: kidney disease triggers cognitive impairment, even in early stages

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is increasingly recognized as a systemic condition. It also impacts upon other organ systems and in recent years much attention has focussed specifically on the link between the kidneys and the heart.
