The Leading Causes of Kidney FailureKidney Failure is one condition in which nearly all kidney function has been lost. Because kidneys can’t do their work properly, a series of problems will appear. Finding out the causes of kidney failure can help patients choose correct treatments.

What are the leading causes of kidney failure?

1. Diabetes

At present, diabetes is the leading cause of chronic kidney disease, especially ESRD or kidney failure. If high blood sugar is uncontrolled effectively, it can damage blood vessels all over the body as well as kidneys. Within kidneys, tiny blood vessels are responsible for filtering out wastes. Diabetes can disturb this system, so as to cause kidney damage.

2. High blood pressure

Hypertension, secondary to diabetes, is another leading cause of kidney failure. Hypertension can cause the increase of pressure within blood vessels that leads to protein leaking from blood into urine. Once protein leaks out, it can cause damage to kidney filtering system. Finally, this results in vicious circle. Long-term damage causes irreversible kidney damage so that kidney fails in advance.

3. Disorders of immune system

IgA Nephropathy, FSGS, Lupus Nephritis and many other types of kidney disease are all a result of immune disorders. Most often, the prognosis of these kidney diseases are not as good as we expect. If uncontrolled effectively in the early stage, they will eventually develop to kidney failure.

4. Inherited problems

Polycystic Kidney Disease is another cause of kidney failure, and it is an inherited kidney disorder. Generally, PKD progresses slowly, and nearly 50% of PKD patients have kidney failure at age 60. In that situation, patients have to live with dialysis or kidney transplant.

From the above analysis, we have known the leading causes of kidney failure. Tell the online doctor the causes of your kidney failure, so they can give you some effective treatments that may help you get rid of dialysis and kidney transplant.
