Acute Renal Failure- What it is?
Acute renal failure is a condition that develops when the kidneys lose their ability to filter out wastes, excess fluids and salts from the blood stream. Eliminating these wastes forms the basic core of the kidney’s functioning. When this happens, the bodily fluids start to accumulate and may exceed alarming levels. As a result of this condition, the body’s electrolyte levels can go awry, thus posing a potential life threatening situation for the patient.
Also called ‘acute kidney injury’, this condition mostly affects patients who have been admitted in hospitals and nursing homes since an extended period of time. It might take several weeks or even months for this condition to manifest. However, in a few cases, acute kidney failure can also happen over a matter of a few hours.
Critically ill patients or people who require intensive critical care are at the maximum risk of developing this condition.
The good part is that this condition is certainly reversible. However, it usually requires intensive treatment.
How is Acute Renal Failure Caused?
- Acute kidney failure can occur for many reasons. Among the most common reasons are:
- acute tubular necrosis (ATN)
- severe or sudden dehydration
- toxic kidney injury from poisons or certain medications
- autoimmune kidney diseases, such as acute nephritic syndrome and interstitial nephritis
- urinary tract obstruction
- Reduced blood flow can damage your kidneys. The following conditions can lead to decreased blood flow to your kidneys:
- Certain disorders can cause clotting within your kidney’s blood vessels, and this can lead to acute kidney failure. These conditions include:
- Some infections, such as septicemia and acute pyelonephritis, can directly injure your kidneys.
- Pregnancy can also cause complications that harm the kidneys, including placenta previa and placenta abruption.
What are the risk factors?
Age is definitely the primary risk factor in case of acute renal failure. Other risk factors include:
Often times, susceptibility increases with the time one has spent in the ICU of a nursing home. Bone marrow transplant and surgeries of the heart and/or the abdomen can drastically up the risks.
What are the common symptoms?
The common symptoms include:
- Bloody stools
- Foul odor in breath
- Sluggish and slow movements
- Tremors of the hands
- Easy bruising
- Fluid accumulation and retention
- Hip pain and pain between the ribs
- Fatigue and nausea
- High BP count
- Reduced appetite
- Reduced sensation, especially in the hands and the extremities
How To Prevent Renal Failure?

- Exercise: Exercise regularly. Exercise will bring a positive effect to your body. You can do a light exercise such as jogging or cycling 1-2 hours each week.

The pair of kidneys that human beings have, forms an important part in the excretory system. They perform specific and important functions. They excrete urine as well as help in eliminating the toxins, which accumulate in the body. Kidney stones occur when the minerals present in the urine without being discharged, keep on accumulating. This gives rise to an extremely painful and uncomfortable situation. Though sometimes the situation gets revoked all by itself, many-a-times it requires medical intervention.
Some of the symptoms of kidney stones are:
However, there are several preventive measures which you can undertake in order to avert the situation. Some of them are:
- Drink lots of water: Kidney stone is one of those rare conditions that once occurred, always carry the latent threat of recurring again. Therefore, drinking water in large quantities becomes essential. The more you drink water, the more frequently you would urinate, thereby curbing the chances of the minerals settling in the kidneys.
- Avoid certain foods: Food like beets, spinach, those which are replete with calcium oxalate should be avoided in order to minimize chances of having kidney stones.
- Change your diet: If you are trying to avoid the eventuality of developing kidney stones, it is imperative that you change your diet a bit. It is recommended that you exclude animal protein as much as possible and assiduously avoid the intake of salt as much as possible.
- Take less calcium supplements: Calcium generally is considered a nemesis to your kidneys and is prescribed by doctors to be avoided. However recent research has thwarted this claim. Calcium does not pose a threat to kidneys. However, calcium supplements definitely do and therefore, should be avoided. Upton 500 gms of calcium supplement is permissible daily.
