Kidney Failure Treatment

kidney failure is also known as end stage renal disease. If both of the kidneys are fail , it means they have stopped working enough to survive without dialysis or a kidney transplant. if the damage to kidneys continues to get worse and kidneys are less and less able to their job then, there is a chance of chronic kidney disease.

The last stage of chronic kidney disease is Kidney failure. End stage rental disease is also known as ESRD.

The most common cause of ESRD is diabetes.  The second most cause of ESRD is High blood pressure.  Other problems that can cause kidney failure include:

<!--[if !supportLists]-->·         <!--[endif]-->Genetic diseases (diseases you are born with), such as polycystic kidney disease

<!--[if !supportLists]-->·         <!--[endif]-->Nephrotic syndrome

<!--[if !supportLists]-->·         <!--[endif]-->Urinary tract problems

Sometimes the kidneys can stop working very suddenly (within two days). This type of kidney failure is called acute kidney injury or acute renal failure. Common causes of acute renal failure include:
