Chronic Kidney Disease Linked to Lower IQ Level in Children

The IQ level of children with chronic kidney disease (CKD) was low compared to normal children and they also had mild problems with academic skills, metal skills, visual and memory power, finds a new study. Research studies show that CKD in children not only affects their physical health, but also has an impact on their academic performance, mental health and neurocognitive function. This can later have a long-term effect during their adulthood.
