Acute Renal Failure

An acute Renal failure is an illness that occurs when kidneys cease their ability to eliminate extra fluids, wastes and salts from the bloodstream quite abruptly. The elimination of these wastes constitutes the foundation of kidney's function. If this is the case, bodily fluids and waste products begin to build up and could rise to alarming levels. Because of this situation the electrolyte levels in the body can decrease, which could lead to an imminent risk of death to the person.

Acute renal impairment can be seen quickly with a variety of symptoms including the loss of appetite or confusion. It's a serious condition however it is managed. If treated properly, the majority of sufferers can manage an episode without lasting consequences.
