At any rate need to control your phosphate levels and take your meds as prescribed to control you bone disease so no hip fracture will occur which will increase mortality. Control phosphate by no dairy products and control bean/ legume intake. Also, no cola including dr. Pepper, but root beer is okay. ...Read more

Kidney (Definition)

The kidneys are paired organs that lie on either side of the vertebral column. Part of their critical functions include the excretion of urine and removal of nitrogenous wastes products from the blood. They regulate acid-base, electrolyte, fluid balance and blood pressure. Through hormonal signals, the kidneys control the ...Read more

What is the disease for symptoms like cold sweat, difficult in breathing and visual becomes black and white? My dad had kidney failure

These : These symptoms are very broad and could represent many things. Common causes would be low blood sugar (hypoglycemia), panic/anxiety attacks, neurological issues, etc. These are not signs of kidney failure, however more information on your family history should be obtained. You need a complete history, physical, and diagnostic testing in order to figure out what is going on.

I have chronic kidney disease im 22 years old but I feel someone made me to have kidney failure is this possible? Can anyone make others kidney fail

Not likely: One cannot make another person's kidneys fail by which-craft. It is possible to give someone chemicals that would damage the kidneys, however, I doubt that was what happened. There are many causes of kidney failure but it would take examination, history, urine and other tests to determine the cause. I hope that you are under the care of a doctor for treatment. ...Read more

Can any kind of kidney disease or kidney failure cause a sore back?

Maybe: Any condition of inflammation of the kidney or ureters (emptying system for urine) might cause pain in the flank (back area). Usually, kidney pain will be to one side just under the ribs (costovertebral angle). If associated with changes in color or clarity of urine, blood in urine, then kidney more likely. If in the middle, then back more suspect. Your pcp should be able to xray and determine. ...Read more

3 doctors agreed:
How many people with diabetic kidney disease develop total kidney failure?

20-40%: About 40% of type 1 diabetes patients with kidney disease will develop kidney failure within 20 years without strict blood pressure and glucose control. About 20% of type 2 diabetes patients with kidney disease will develop kidney failure within 20 years, but blood pressure control has seemed to be less effective in completely stopping progression in these patients. ...Read more

I'm adopted. Just discovered my Maternal Grandma died from acute kidney failure. My Mother is Stage 4 Kidney disease.  What should I watch out for?

Annual blood tests: Unfortunately chronic kidney diseases do not generally cause symptoms unless they are pretty advanced. Assessment of kidney function is achieved by routine blood and urine test (that's how they are generally and accidentally found). Ask your doctor if you have not done it already to check your urinalysis and basic metabolic panel and if they are normal, no worries! ...Read more

I have kidney failure, heart disease and diabieses and I have a drug habit. I have lost the use of my legs I need help?

I have kidney failure, heart disease and diabieses and I have a drug habit. I have lost the use of my legs I need help?

First things first: When facing big challenges you can really only focus on one thing at a time, trying to take one step forward. It sounds like the major problem that is in your hands to change is the drug habit. Seeking help and getting clean may open other doors to important health care options. For example, you would only be a kidney transplant candidate after being clean for at least 6-12 months. Best of luck. ...Read more

In Kidney Disease or kidney failure what color of urine is produced, white, pale yellow or dark urine?

Since: One effect of kidney failure is inability of the organ to "concentrate" urine a light color is more common. If however there is loss of blood via the failing kidney (as in glomerulonephritis (infection) the urine can be "smokey" or "dark!

You are welcome to start over, but questions are not linked, so each must have relevant background and ask a clear question. ...Read more

Can an 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

What exactly does borderline kidney failure mean? & what can be done to keep them to get worse? Is ther e something im doing causing them to fail?

Kidney failure?: Two things that can lead to kidney failure (esrd) are poorly controlled hypertension and diabetes. If you have those problems make sure you have your BP well controlled and if you are diabetic, make sure you are under the care of an endocrinologist. See a nephrologist (n) and have a 24-hour urine collection to get your actual kidney function determined. After that the n can discuss your prognosis. ...Read more

Can e. Coli caused kidney failure if untreated?

Can e. Coli caused kidney failure if untreated?

E. coli: The so-called enterohemorrhagic e. Coli is linked to a particular form of kidney disease called hemolytic uremic syndrome. Type o157 is the most common but other o types can also cause this. Anti microbial agents not only do not prevent the kidney complication but clearly are linked to a higher risk of it.
However, e. Coli sepsis of other types can cause kidney failure that may be prevented by rx. ...Read more

Can someone have acute kidney failure, not know it and die? Or would it eventually get severe enough to where they'd know they need to seek help?

Can someone have acute kidney failure, not know it and die? Or would it eventually get severe enough to where they'd know they need to seek help?

Acute = fast: Acute renal failure can act fast and as it gets severe you'd most likely know about it and seek help, but possibly not soon enough to reverse the condition. Similarly, the problem with chronic renal failure is that you may not catch it early enough to reverse or delay the progression of the disease. Testing can be pretty simple & good treatments frequently are effective so get checked by your doc. ...Read more

What causes kidney failure?

Many things: Kidney failure can be from problems before, within and after the kidneys(pre-, intrinsic, post-renal failure). Dehydration or poor blood flow from heart problems, blockage from prostate or urinary flow problems, and many things within the kidney. Infection can do it, too. Diseases such as diabetes and hypertension are main causes, as are medications. ...Read more
