San Dimas In-Home Care: Types of Kidney Disease

????????????????????????????????????????When your kidneys fail to function, it’s usually due to one or more of the following reasons: certain chronic diseases, exposure to environmental toxins, severe dehydration, and trauma to one or both kidneys.  When a kidney stops working, it stops filtering waste and therefore there’s a buildup of toxins in your bloodstream which causes a series of health complications, sometimes requiring a kidney transplant.  Is your elderly loved one at risk for renal failure?  Consider these factors that may put you at risk: heart disease, liver failure, a severe infection, or dehydration.  In this article, A-1 Home Care in San Dimas identifies the causes of each type of renal failure that affects one in 10 Americans.

Acute Prerenal Kidney Failure

  • Cause: insufficient blood flow to the kidneys

Acute Intrinsic Kidney Failure

  • Cause: direct physical trauma to the kidney, such as an accident

Chronic Prerenal Kidney Failure

  • Cause: extended period of insufficient blood flow to the kidneys

Chronic Intrinsic Kidney Failure

  • Cause: long-term damage caused by physical trauma to the kidneys, such as lack of oxygen or severe bleeding

Chronic Post-Renal Kidney Failure

  • Cause: long-term inability to urinate, placing pressure on the bladder and eventually damaging the kidneys
