Failure of kidneys to perform their respective functions in an apt and proper way is referred to as Chronic Renal Failure. It is caused due to malfunctioning of the small filtering units called as nephrons. As a result, the entire body suffers from toxicity as toxins and wastes start going back into the blood and circulate throughout the body. This condition may be accompanied by kidney infections, urinary tract infections and other problems in urination.
The chief causes of Chronic Renal Failure may include-
- High blood pressure
- High blood sugar/Diabetes
- Use of certain drugs or medicines such as diuretics or antibiotics
- Dehydration or lack of fluids in the body
- Reduced flow of blood due to various heart diseases
