Prolonged renal failure (prerenal or otherwise) if severe enough puts the individual at risk of death from chemical abnormalities and uremia. Short term risk death, if survives long term risk incomplete recovery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can endocytosis of a virus into a nerve ending cause pain? I'm not talking about inflammation caused by the virus, but just the act of endocytosis.
Endocytosis: Entry of a virus into a cell is by endocytic vesicles transporting the incoming viral particles from the plasma membrane to the perinuclear area of the host cell, where conditions for viral replication are optimal. Cell damage seldom occurs prior to replication and so it is unlikely that the inflammatory process will create pain, even on a neuronal cell, bur doubt there is any way to prove this. ...Read more

What dangers could emerge from not being exposed to a variety of bacteria and viruses in childhood? None
When : When you say being "exposed, " i'm going to assume you mean being infected with. So... Being infected with a bacteria will not make you any more or less susceptible or immune to any future exposure to that bacteria. Our bodies do not build immunity to a bacteria, only viruses. Thus, you can get a strep throat again and again and again, and no amount of getting a strep throat will ever make you immune to getting another strep throat. Viruses are different, and once exposed or infected with a virus, we can develop immunity to that particular virus for a period of time. Depending on the virus, immunity can last anywhere from days to years. Viruses mutate (change), and a slightly different virus of the same sort can infect you even though you've had a strain of that virus before. It's iffy. But even if you never had the usual "childhood diseases" (viruses), i assume you've been vaccinated against them, in which case, you're fairly well protected from future infection of whatever viruses you've been immunized against. ...Read more

Multiple organ fail: Peritonitis means INFLAMMATION of the peritoneum, the inner lining of the belly.

Once the inflammation starts, it makes all the major organs (heart, lungs, kidneys, liver, brain) work much harder than normal. Sometimes those organs can't do the work, and fail one at a time, causing death. ...Read more
