In brief: Chronic illness

Any chronic illness can have an impact on male fertility.
One must consider the cause of the kidney failure, what medications or treatment the person has taken and is currently on, and how well they are responding to the treatment (intraperitoneal or hemodialysis). The better controlled the illness the less impact on fertility.
