Role of kidneys
Kidneys are bean-shaped organs namely kidneys. The kidneys filter the metabolic waste and extra fluid from the blood. In addition to this, they also help in regulating blood pressure, red blood cell production and electrolyte balance. A renal failure occurs when kidneys are not able to clean the blood of the metabolic waste. This situation can lead to building up of high levels of toxic waste in the body which can harm the kidneys as well as other organs of the body.
What is an acute renal failure?
Acute renal failure is the condition in which there is a sudden fall in the function of kidneys. If the kidneys lose their filtering ability the dangerous level of waste may accumulate and the chemical makeup of the blood may get misbalance. This situation is common among people who are already hospitalized or under treatment.
The causes and signs of renal failure
Some of the most common causes that can trigger the growth of renal failure in patients are diabetes and high blood pressure. The other reasons are kidney stones, tumor or cancer, blood loss due to physical injury, glomerulonephritis, polycystic kidney disease and nephrotic syndrome.
The signs of acute renal failure are only visible once the disease has advanced to a superior stage. The most common visible signs are:
- Pain in abdomen
- Dry and itchy skin
- Change in the color of urine
- Joint and back pain
- Abnormalities in weight

A kidney-friendly diet
A proper food for the kidneys is essential as the impaired kidneys can’t filter the waste from the blood easily. So, the right food and proper nutrients are important for the well-being of the kidneys. There are certain points that one should keep in mind while forming a diet plan:
- Food containing fat content should be limited as it can lead to increase in cholesterol
- Protein is the building block of the body and one needs it to grow, heal and stay healthy. One must adjust the level of protein in their diet to safer quantity
- The healthy source of fiber including fruits and vegetables should be consumed more
- Sodium should be limited in the diet as it can lead to swelling and raise the blood pressure
