Oliguria causes azot: Oliguria is one of several causes for azotemia. Azotemia means the build up of metabolic waste products in the blood as a result of inadequate filtering of these substances from the blood by the kidneys. Oliguria means a low urine output, or smaller than normal urine volume produced per day. This can occurr with dehydration, or obsrtuction of urine flow. They both result in diminished filtering.
