3. Difficulty breathing
4. Weakness and Fatigue
5. Upset stomach

CAUSES OF KIDNEY FAILURE
There are several health conditions which underlie kidney failure, but the chief reasons a kidney can fail include:
1. Blood flow to the kidneys has slowed
2. Ureter blockage which prevents kidneys from eliminating waste

TREATMENT FOR KIDNEY FAILURE
If you’re currently experiencing any of the symptoms or risk factors related to kidney failure, see a doctor immediately. For severe symptoms, dial 911.
Treating kidney failure means treating its cause. It’s imperative for your health that your kidneys work to filter the blood and eliminate waste. In the event that your kidneys can no longer do this properly, you may be required to undergo dialysis treatment to ensure that your body is able to properly function.
For minor illnesses that cause temporary challenges to kidney function, treatment can be as simple as removing a kidney stone or clearing up an infection or the cause of a blockage. In instances of cancers or other serious illnesses, interventional treatments or surgery may be indicated.
Maintaining a healthy lifestyle and avoiding overuse of OTC medications that affect kidney function are both ideal for preventing kidney failure. Additionally, it’s critical that you effectively manage any ongoing health conditions that affect your kidney health. Advanced Urology can help you address conditions such as these.
