Acute Renal Failure
People experience acute renal failure – also called acute kidney injury, when their kidneys become weak. At that time, the kidneys can't purify the blood and remove waste materials from the blood. Due to this, all the waste materials accumulate together, which can cause critical medical issues. It may cause an imbalance in the blood's chemical makeup. The four stages of acute renal failure are initiation, oligo-anuria, polyuria, and restitution.
The symptoms of acute renal failure are:
- The amount of urine output decreases.
- Lack or shortness of breath.
- Confusion and other brain-related problems.
- Weakness in the body.
- The heartbeat is not regular.
- Nausea or vomiting.
- Swellings in the legs, ankle, or feet due to acute renal failure.
- A feeling of pressure or pain in the chest.
- Chances of coma or seizures if the failure gets critical.
Common causes of kidney failure are:
- High blood pressure.
- Kidney inflammation or cysts.
- Even some inherited kidney diseases.
