What causes and any ideas for kidney failure?

Firstly, thanks for your query! I think this question is mostly concerned by people with kidney disease. To be frank, kidney failure is divided into two types, namely acute one and chronic one.

Acute kidney failure develops rapidly over a few hours or a few days. This condition can be fatal and requires immediate treatment, if not, it may progress into chronic kidney failure.

Simply speaking, acute kidney failure occurs when there are: Low blood flow to the kidneys; direct damage to the kidneys; urine blockage to the kidneys.

Chronic kidney failure refers to slow and progressive decline of kidney function. The most common causes of chronic kidney failure are diabetes and high blood pressure, besides, other common causes may include kidney infection, polycystic kidney disease, autoimmune disorders, glomerulonephritis, hardening of arteries, urinary tract blockage, excessive usage of certain medications and so on.
