The study showed that male was 53% with the age between 13 and 87 years while the female was 47% with the age between 12 and 91 years. Diabetes mellitus (DM) and hypertension (HT) were the most common cause of CRF. The outcome was: 30%complete improvement, 21% partial improvement, 26% less responsive and 23% died.
