Kidney Failure

Description:

This is a condition in which the kidneys fail to perform their normal function of eliminating waste products from the body. It can be sudden or slow and gradual.

There are a variety of causes for kidney failure, including heart and artery diseases, severe urinary tract infections, congenital kidney disorders, accidental kidney damage, abuse of certain drugs and chemicals.

Symptoms include reduction in the amount of urine produced and presence of blood and albumin (a protein made in the liver) in the urine. There may be nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea and headaches and the person becomes lethargic. Symptoms develop due to electrolyte imbalance and acidosis. Fluid retention, tiredness and lethargy, pains, anaemia and hypertension are some of the common symptoms.
