Abstract: According to the recent survey, Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD), Hypertension, Diabetes Mellitus type I & II are very common among the people now a days. The portable and user friendly devices like sphygmomanometer, Glucometer are developed for the diagnosis of Blood pressure (BP) and blood glucose respectively, which are available commercially. This literature review focuses on the development of portable CKD diagnosis system using different types of gas sensors. The Ammonia is marked as the major biomarker in the diagnosis of any kidney disease, the presence of elevated concentration of ammonia in the breath of a person reflects any kidney problem in the body. This Ammonia and other gases which constitute the kidney problem like Nitrogen oxide which acts as the biomarker for end stage acute kidney disorder are diagnosed with the help of several gas sensors like Ammonia gas sensor, Gold Nano particles sensors, Nano composites sensors etc., It is possible to develop a system for the diagnosis of CKD using the gas sensors which could reduce the time consuming regular clinical diagnosis of the same.
