Kidney failure is the term used for defining the failure or complete halt of functioning of one or more kidneys. In such conditions the kidney is unable to get rid of excessive potassium from the blood and symptoms here include abnormal beating or rhythms of the heart, inability to do regular work without breath shortness, feeling of dizziness and also utter confusion.
HOW IS KIDNEY FAILURE DIAGNOSED?
Diagnosis of kidney failure is done by a general physician who would run a few tests include CT scan, USG and also blood and stool tests.
HOW IS KIDNEY FAILURE TREATED?
The treatment will depend on the cause of the acute kidney failure. The goal is to restore normal kidney function. Preventing fluids and wastes from building up in the body while the kidneys recover is important. In the majority of cases, a kidney specialist called a “nephrologist” makes an evaluation. A kidney transplant is recommended in severe cases. Treatments that help prevent complications include:
• Treatments to balance the amount of fluids in your blood
• Medications to control blood potassium.
• Medications to restore blood calcium levels.
• Dialysis to remove toxins from your blood.
