Kidney failure occurs when the kidneys partly or completely lose their ability to filter water and waste from the blood. The build-up of toxic substances can cause dangerous health problems. Two kinds of kidney failure are acute kidney failure and chronic kidney failure. Acute kidney failure (also referred to as renal failure) can happen rapidly. Its causes include:
  • blood flow slowly to your kidneys
  • direct damage to your kidneys
  • kidneys' urine drainage tubes (ureters) become blocked and wastes can't leave your body
Chronic kidney disease, also called chronic kidney failure, describes the gradual loss of kidney function. Its causes include:  a disease or condition impairs kidney function In most cases, progressive kidney damage is the result of a chronic disease or other factors, such as
  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Heart and blood vessel (cardiovascular) disease
  • Smoking
  • Obesity
  • Being African-American, Native American or Asian-American
  • Family history of kidney disease
  • Abnormal kidney structure
  • Older ageIf you have had some early or possible signs of kidney failure, we advise that you turn to your doctor as soon as possible and have yourself checked up.

how do u know that u have kidney problem....what is the sign
Regrettably and generally, you do not have any clinical signs when the kidney problem is mild or moderate. That is to say, when you do have clinical symptoms (such as nausea, fatigue, vomiting, and blurry vision), then the disease must be very severe. Thus, to detect kidney disease early, routine health check-up is extremely important.
I’m a hopeless woman. A year ago I was diagnosed with kidney failure and was told by the doctor that I may not be able to live a normal life. It was just after my honeymoon and I was really frustrated at the news. I’m just in my twenties and I’ve got a lot of dreams to fulfill. In order to extend my life expectancy, I followed each piece of the advice proposed by the doctor and have been receiving the regular dialysis for the whole year. Recently, I’ve been feeling extremely tired and sick. To my surprise, I’m having a baby. I was too thrilled to hear it from the doctor but later, what the doctor said just gave me a heavy blow. He suggested me to do abortion so as to protect myself and the baby. Really heartbroken news, but I’ve got no choice. Still upset now and don’t know how much time I’ve got.
So sorry...The average life expectancy is 5 to 10 years...You still got a life to live.
