When your kidney function falls below a certain point, it is referred to as a kidney failure or renal failure. Fortunately, you can still continue to lead a normal life with the right treatment for renal failure. Here are the three best treatments that you can choose depending on your condition and lifestyle:
1. Dialysis: Dialysis is the process that takes over the function of your kidneys to filter out the waste from your blood and maintain the proper balance of chemicals in the blood. You may use dialysis for many years or as a short-term treatment while waiting for a kidney transplant. Dialysis is not a cure for kidney disease, rather it helps you deal with renal failure. It is life-saving and without it, the kidneys will no longer function.
There are two types of dialysis treatments that you can choose from:
- Hemodialysis – This type uses a machine to remove waste from the blood and sends it back to your body. It can be done at home or at a dialysis center.
- Peritoneal Dialysis – This type uses the lining of your belly called the Peritoneum to do the work of your kidneys. A catheter and dialysis solution is used to carry out the function.
There are benefits and complications for each type of dialysis. The treatment decision will largely depend on the patient’s illness and their past medical history. Discuss with your doctor to decide the best option for you.
2. Kidney Transplant: Kidney transplants can provide a better quality of life than dialysis and can be seen as a potential cure for kidney failure. A healthy kidney from a live donor or deceased donor is surgically placed in your body as a replacement to the failed kidneys. Although this may be a better option for you, it has certain shortcomings. There is an element of rejection and you may have to wait for a long time to get a donor. Extensive testing and anti-rejection medications are prescribed with this treatment.
3. Palliative Care: Rather than cure, it is the care that people with serious illness need. With so much to deal with, the patients have an array of tough questions and challenges to deal with. Patients need to take into account all medical options and care options based on their condition and severity of the renal failure.
Making the right treatment choice is difficult and that too when you are ill. It is normal to be fearful and worried about the risks involved. Get support from your family and doctor to help you make the right treatment choice. It may also be helpful to visit a dialysis or transplant center to talks to others who have been through these treatments. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Nephrologist.

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?
To prevent renal failure, you can follow the given steps.
- 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.
- Stop Smoking: Smoking will give a bad impact to your body. Nicotine in the smoke in the future will damage your vital organs of your body, such as lungs, skin, heart, or renal.
- Reduce the Intake of Fatty Food: Fatty food can stimulate the level of cholesterol in your body increase.
- The Weight of your Body: You have to take care of your body so that you will not get obesity.
