Kidney function: People can expect to recover their renal function if the cause of acute renal failure (a) is due to obstruction, relieved early, drugs that attack the kidney and are stopped, muscle destruction and low blood pressure causing acute tubular necrosis, among others. This recovery can take up to three weeks and at times longer than that.
