Renal / Kidney Failure
Kidney failure (also called renal failure) means one or both kidneys can no longer function well on their own. Kidney failure happens when the kidney’s functioning ability / capacity is affec One of the most important is helping your body eliminate toxins. The kidneys filter your blood and send waste out of your body in urine. When the kidneys don’t work effectively, waste products build up in your body
Renal / Kidney Failure
When the kidneys lose function suddenly (within hours or days), it’s called acute kidney failure (or acute kidney injury). This type of kidney failure is often temporary. Common causes of acute kidney failure can include:
- Autoimmune kidney diseases

- A urinary tract obstruction
- Uncontrolled systemic disease like heart or liver disease
Chronic kidney disease refers to a group of health conditions that affect how well your kidneys function over time. If left untreated, chronic kidney disease can lead to kidney failure.
The biggest causes of kidney failure from chronic kidney disease are:
- Diabetes: Unmanaged diabetes can lead to uncontrolled blood sugar levels. Consistently high blood sugar can damage the body’s organs, including the kidneys.
- High blood pressure: High blood pressure (hypertension) means blood travels through your body’s blood vessels with increased force. Over time, untreated high blood pressure levels can damage the kidneys’ tissue.
Other causes of chronic kidney disease include:
- Polycystic kidney disease, a hereditary condition where cysts (fluid-filled sacs) grow inside your kidneys.
- Glomerular diseases, such as glomerulonephritis, which affect how well the kidneys can filter waste.
- Lupus and other autoimmune diseases that can affect multiple body systems.
