Why Do People Get Kidney Failure
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.See 1 more doctor answer
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
No waste removal: Kidney failure means your kidneys don't filter and remove salt, fluids, and waste products. They will accumulate in the body. Early changes can be excess fluid (edema) swelling, hard to breathe, high blood pressure, headache, decreased urine output, funny taste, weak and tired, and many other symptoms.
Possible: Depends on the cause.Get a more detailed answer ›
Yes: Absolutely there is a chance.Get a more detailed answer ›
It depends: It depends upon may different factors. But, rather than trying to give a simple answer, go to this website (reputable organization) and read about Stage 4 renal disease: http://www. Kidney. Org/patients/peers/stage4.cfm. There is great info there.See 1 more doctor answer
My sister says she has chronic kidney failure. Are family members more likely to get the same thing?
Sometimes: There are many causes of chronic kidney disease. Some of those causes are genetic/familial and so family members may get the same condition. Others are completely separate and there is no association. We know that overall, having a first degree relative who has to have dialysis will increase the chance of an individual eventually needing it as well.
I'm just wondering, if you get some of the symptoms of kidney failure, is it still possible to get cured?
Get info on YOU!: Symptoms of kidney failure are pretty vague at first, including fatigue! (who doesn't get that from time to time?) the important thing is to learn the numbers that reflect your kidney function. If you are a diabetic, get a yearly urine test to assess the amount of microalbumin (protein) in your urine - it's your earliest indicator of problems. Watch your blood pressure, too! Good luck.

Depends: If you have a less severe form of acute renal failure (ARF) like dehydration then probably a couple of days. However if you have a more severe form of ARF like a glomerulonephritis or infection causing acute tubular necrosis, the your recovering time might take weeks. In the severe form, you also may never get back to normal kidney function as well.
Anny food can't be taken patient kidney failure.? Give example.? And person who can get the kidney failure?
Low phosphorous: Phosphorous is present in milk, cheese, nuts, meats and other foods. Limiting the amount of phosphorous eaten and taking binders, pills that stick to phosphorous in the gut preventing absorption, is of vital importance for a dialysis patient. High levels of phosphorous are associated with itching, red eyes and over the long term vascular injury by being stuck into the walls of arteries.See 1 more doctor answer
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.
Fluid Status: Kidneys are very important for fluid balance in the body. They filter our toxins and regulate your volume status (how much fluid you have in your body). When they fail the ability to loose water/fluid by way of your urinary system goes away and fluid buildup begins.See 1 more doctor answer
Well I don't know: But I would say not to drink more than one or two a day I would ask your nephrologist about this if you had one. I assume the taurine and caffeine is probably a little hard on your kidneys but I am not aware of red bull induced renal failure but I am just a radiologist.
I've not heard of it: It is difficult to kill yourself with most of the newer antidepressants. Many who make suicide attempts take a combination of meds and some organ damage might occur. If you or someone is considering overdosing, please seek help. Suicidal gestures or intentions are not the answer. They are many resources, call local help lines.
Unusual: The disease homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia can cause heart attacks in someone in their 20's. People with this have cholesterol levels above 500. I have also seen a couple patients with diabetes and who smoke who have had heart attacks in their 20's. Kidney failure while young can be caused by inherited or autoimmune kidney disease both of which are relatively rare.

It is now known: That diabetics excrete enormous amounts of vitamin b1 in their urine. A derivative of thiamin (b1) is called benfotiamine and it has been reported that it prevents the complications of diabetes. You need large doses and you should ask your doc. If he is unaware of this important research it can be looked up on line.See 2 more doctor answers
I have symptoms of lupus and kidney failure but im hesitant to go to the county hospital to get tests done, can you preverify my symptoms before I go?
You need: You need to go to your doctor or hospital to have the tests performed. Labwork is key.
Hard to say: In theory, there is enough water in beer that some level of intake for 3 days would meet your fluid needs without permanent harm. However, the margin of error is narrow.Alcohol interferes with the bodies safety system that reclaims water from the kidneys, and at some level you would pee out more water than that contained by the beer. Dangerous but not always fatal.
A condition in which your kidneys suddenly stop working normally. Since your kidneys remove waste products and help balance water and salt and other minerals (electrolytes) in your blood, when your kidneys stop working, waste products, fluids, and electrolytes build up in your body. This can cause problems ...Read more
