Renal Diseases

The two bean shaped organs which filter extra water and wastes out of your blood and make urine. Kidney disease is caused when the kidneys are damaged and cannot filter blood the way they should. Millions of tiny structures called nephrons are present inside each kidney. They remove wastes and extra water, which become urine. Most kidney diseases attack the nephrons. This damage may leave kidneys unable to remove wastes. The presence of diseases like diabetes, high blood pressure, or a close family member with kidney disease results in the higher risk of kidney disease. Chronic kidney disease damages the nephrons slowly over several years. Other kidney problems include:

 

  • Track 1-1 Cancer
  • Track 2-2 Cysts
  • Track 3-3 Stones
  • Track 4-4 Infections
