Causes Of Kidney Failure
Many kidney disease patients consult us online saying that they have symptoms such as high creatinine, high blood pressure, back pain, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, etc. Some would say that their kidney functions are declined and they are chronic kidney disease.
However chronic kidney disease is not a particular illness and it can be caused by many factors. Only if we make clear the underlying cause of kidney disease can we seek proper and effective treatments. However it is often the case that many patients do not know what caused their kidney problem even with test reports. The following are the causes of kidney disease and kidney failure which might help you find out what is the underlying cause so as to have more effective and targeted treatment measures.
Hypertension, diabetes and glomerular disease are the leading causes of kidney failure. Besides, hereditary disease, obstructive kidney disease and impairments of renal vascular are all possible causes.
Hypertension is characterized by high blood pressure which can cause high pressure, high perfusion and high filtration in the kidneys and damage blood vessels and glomerular sclerosis. Well control of high blood pressure is one important aspect for treating kidney failure due to hypertension.
Diabetes is characterized by high blood sugar level which can cause the kidneys overwork. As a result, renal cells and tissues will become impaired and necrotic. Timely and proper treating proteinuria can greatly slow down the progression into kidney failure.
There are a variety of glomerular diseases. Primary glomerular diseases include FSGS, IgA nephropathy, membranous nephropathy, etc. Secondary glomerular diseases include diabetic nephropathy, HIV-associated nephropathy, amyloid nephropathy, etc.
Hereditary disease such as polycystic kidney disease, medullary cystic disease, Alport syndrome, congenital renal dysplasia often cause renal failure.
Obstructive kidney disease
Obstructive kidney diseases such as kidney stone, hydronephrosis, retroperitoneal fibrosis can hinder the normal urine and blood flow in the kidneys and damage normal kidney functions.
Renal vascular lesions
In case of renal vascular disease such as hypertensive nephrosclerosis or renal arterystenosis, the renal functional tissues can not get enough blood, oxygen and nutrition supply. As a result, renal functions will be affected.
If you are still not very clear about the cause of your kidney problem, welcome to consult our online doctors or leave us a message, we will email you more detailed explanation.
