Kidney Failure- A Catastrophe

Kidney failure simply means that the functionality of kidney is reduced by 85-90%, GFR (Glomerular Filtration rate) falls below 15 and kidneys aren’t able to support you enough to stay alive! Your kidneys don’t fail instantly but gradually decrease their functionality. Usually, the symptoms of kidney failure show up quite late.

Kidney failure leads to the rise in the amount of creatinine in the body, which is a factor to calculate the GFR. As the amount of creatinine in blood increases, GFR of the kidney decreases. When kidney failure occurs, some people may have nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, weakness, muscle cramps, itching, and tiredness.

Kidney failure has no cure but treatment which will help the affected to lead a normal life. Some people live a long, healthy and fulfilling life even after kidney failure with the aid of treatments.
There are five types of kidney failure:-

1.      Acute pre-renal kidney failure- This occurs due to reduced blood flow to the kidneys that reduces the ability of kidneys to filter toxins.
2.      Acute intrinsic kidney failure- It happens due to physical impact on kidneys caused by an accident. The causes of this type of failure also include toxin overload and ischemia.
3.      Chronic pre-renal kidney failure- Low amount of blood flow to the kidneys for a prolonged period of time causes this type of kidney failure.
4.      Chronic intrinsic kidney failure- This happens due to intrinsic kidney disease that causes severe bleeding or a lack of oxygen.
5.      Chronic post-renal kidney failure- Long-term blockage of the urinary tract causes this type of renal failure.

Symptoms of Kidney Failure

Generally, people with kidney failure will have a few symptoms but sometimes no symptoms may show up. Some of the probable symptoms are:
·         Reduction in the amount of urine
