In brief: Treating the cause

Causes are a wide array of possibilities.
Based on the diagnosis the doctor will treat the cause. Also, the kidneys will sometimes need support with dialysis until the case recovers. Otherwise, the doctor will fill in for the kidneys in their relative absence from the job e.g. Adjusts electrolytes, hemoglobin, acidosis, blood pressure, edema until the kidneys return to duty and take over.
