If An Appendix Has Ruptured And There May Possibly Be Infection Left Int He Body Can It Cause Renal Kidney Failure In The Future
If an appendix has ruptured and there may possibly be infection left int he body can it cause renal kidney failure in the future?
Indirectly,if at all: Acute appendicitis with perforation may be complicated by an acute infection throughout the body (sepsis) that can compromise other organs' function temporarily, such as the kidney. Furthermore, an abscess may develop within the abdominal cavity that could take weeks to manifest itself; left untreated, this could lead to sepsis, as well. Either way, the effects on other organs are reversible w/rx. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Have OAB but scared it's kidney can kidney failure cause urinary frequency such as going every half hour less than an ounce? Not infection for sure.
Here are some ...: OAB itself would not cause kidney failure for sure.

So, no matter who, what, and how you're, practice low-risk healthy lifestyle with no overindulgence / obsession as key to longevity. ...Read more

Are kidney problems hereditary? My dad had kidney failure due to a urine infection..And his other kidney was not functioning since childhood.
Some, unlikely dad's: Polycystic renal disease is hereditary, adult type is autosomal dominant so there is 50% chance of each child of parent with PKD inheriting it. Pediatric type PKD is recessive & usually fatal at or soon after birth. Bladder reflux which can cause kidney disease can also be heritary. Kidney duplication sometimes assoc. W kidney disease can be inherited. Dad's kidney problem unlikely heritable. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Not necessarily: If you already have problems with your kidneys that have caused them to not work normally, then an infection can make things worse. If your kidneys are functioning normally, it would be very unlikely to have acute renal failure with a kidney infection. Parenthetically, infected kidneys will lose some of their function, but treatment of the infection should restore things to normal. ...Read more

Can a urinalysis pick up kidney disease?Had multiple, also was in hospital for infection but nobody said anything about kidney failure.Ct, sonogram to.
It's a good start: A standard urinalysis does check for protein in the urine which is often a sign of kidney disease. But small amounts may be missed unless a more specific test is requested (for microalbuminuria). Other signs of kidney disease are an abnormal blood level of creatinine or blood in the urine (also detected in the urinalysis). Finally, many patients will start having elevated blood pressure. ...Read more
