In brief: Uremia
When the kidneys fail, usually a slow process, the blood collects toxins including urea - mostly end products of metabolism and you will get extremely sick.
It is commonly associated with changes in blood pressure and requires serious attention by a renal specialist. Sometimes a kidney transplantation might be needed.
