This can cause problems ...Read more

Can drinking water reverse acute renal failure?

Can drinking water reverse acute renal failure?

Acute renal failure: It depends on the cause of the acute renal failure. If it is due to volume depletion/dehydration, then yes, fluids (either oral or iv), can often help reverse acute renal failure. However, often medications contribute to acute injury and may need to be stopped or adjusted. ...Read more

Hi, is the metabolic acidosis in chronic renal failure fatal ?

Hi, is the metabolic acidosis in chronic renal failure fatal ?

Acidosis: The simple answer is yes. However, the amount of acid has to be very high for that to happen. High amounts of acid in the blood interfere with many, if not all, biologic processes in the human body such as the effect of Insulin lowering blood sugar, the normal metabolism of proteins and fats that are essential for life, and even normal heart beat, just to name a few. ...Read more

Will reflux nephropathy cause chronic kidney failure?

Will reflux nephropathy cause chronic kidney failure?

It can, if severe. : How much kidney damage reflux nephropathy can cause depends on the degree of reflux and the number and severity of kidney infections that may result. These insults can scar the affected kidney, diminishing kidney function. Chronic kidney failure means that a person's overall kidney function is not adequate, and can occur if both kidneys are severely damaged. ...Read more

Does reflux nephropathy cause chronic kidney failure?

Does reflux nephropathy cause chronic kidney failure?

Yes, but...: Children born with severe degree of vesicoureteral reflux(vur) sustain kidney damage, namely reflux nephropathy. However, surgical correction of vur and adequate management of urinary tract infections may prevent further damage leading to renal failure. The notion that recurrent utis damage kidneys and result in kidney failure has been overblown. ...Read more

Why thiazides diuretics contraindication with impaired renal failure ?

Why thiazides diuretics contraindication with impaired renal failure ?

Thiazides in CKD: Thiazides are not contraindicated in renal failure for any medical reason. They are not used as they are ineffective of making patients urinate. Patients with chronic kidney disease are placed on loop diuretics which are able to evoke a diuretic response in patients with it. Patients on dialysis are given these drugs when they still have residual renal function so they can eliminate urine. ...Read more

What is chronic renal failure?

What is chronic renal failure?

Lab testing: A creatinine clearance number of less the 10 generally determines renal failure. This number is calculated by your age, weight and sex. Not all people with ckd need dialysis right away. This is determined by symptoms associated with renal failuire like high potassium, volume overload(edema and difficulty breathing), itching, poor appetite, other "uremic" symptoms. ...Read more

What is the difference between chronic renal failure and chronic renal insufficiency?

What is the difference between chronic renal failure and chronic renal insufficiency?

Terminology: Many physicians including nephrologists will use the terms chronic renal failure, chronic renal insufficiency, and chronic kidney disease interchangeably. Some will use the term "insufficiency" when the chronicity or the severity of the renal disease is not clear but in most instances, they are synonymous. ...Read more

Could increased pleural fluid cause pulmonary edema, heart failure, or pneumonia?

Could increased pleural fluid cause pulmonary edema, heart failure, or pneumonia?

No, but: Increased pleural fluid (effusion) may be caused by pulmonary edema and heart failure. This is because the heart is unable to pump the blood effectively and fluid backs up in the lungs and leaks out to the pleural space. The fluid can often be relieved by medication. Pneumonia can cause increased fluid as well, which is often infected (empyema). This is removed by a tube in the chest or surgery. ...Read more

In patient with chronic renal faliure, is associated with hypertention or normal BP ?

Chronic renal: Longstanding hypertension is only one cause of renal failure. Chronic inflammation, infection, diabetic nephropathy are some other causes. In other words the hypertension causes the chronic renal failure although many kidney diseases can cause hypertension. You may have normal blood pressure in the presence of chronic renal failure however. ...Read more

What does htn and chronic renal failure mean?

HTN & renal failure: Htn (hypertension or high blood pressure) is one of the two leading causes of chronic renal (kidney) failure. Diabetes is the other leading cause. Many people have both HTN and diabetes! when kidneys shut down, many body systems suffer: heart, bone health, red blood cell production, etc. When kidneys stop functioning, kidney transplants or dialysis help; there's no substitute for healthy kidneys! ...Read more

Failure kidney transplant because recurrence of focal glomerulosclerosis also has global hypokinesia on dialysis no diabetics or heart disease . ?

Transplant: Focal segmental glomerulosclerosis or fsgs has recurrence rate of 10 % after transplant. You can get another transplant and decrease rate of recurrence by getting plasmapheresis and galactose therapy before next surgery. These therapies have been shown to reduce risk in selected group of patients. ...Read more
