Session Overview: Acute Kidney Injury in Multiple Myeloma and Light Chain Deposition Disease
CKD is usually the result of a long-term disease that causes lasting damage to the kidneys over a prolonged period of time. A large proportion of the elderly population suffers from some form of CKD, and the damage caused to the kidneys is often irreparable. AKI occurs as a result of an event that quickly damages the kidney’s ability to function. AKI can occur as a consequence of Multiple Myeloma, and the damage can be reversible if diagnosed early on in its progression.
