Available treatments for acute renal failure
Posted on Aug 04, 2015
The kidneys are one of the most vital organs of our body. Some important bodily functions that are carried out by the kidneys include excretion of unwanted waste products, elimination of extra fluid and maintaining electrolyte balance in the body. Acute renal failure is a condition where the working of the kidneys gets disrupted all of a sudden. As a result, waste products, fluids and electrolyte get accumulated within the body. This is a harmful condition which if left untreated can be life-threatening. The objective of acute renal failure treatment is to restore normal functioning of the kidneys as soon as possible.

The condition is treated by a kidney specialist or a nephrologist. When signs and symptoms suggest that the patient could be suffering from acute renal failure, a series of laboratory tests are conducted. It includes urine test, blood tests, imaging test, ultrasound, etc. If the test reports are positive, the patient needs to be hospitalized for the treatment. Nephrologists first try to find out the exact cause behind the problem. Then they try to treat that particular infection or injury so that normal functioning of the kidneys can be restored. If required, they also make efforts to improve blood flow to the kidneys.

On the other hand, some measures are also taken to ensure healing up of the damaged kidneys. Such measures largely depend upon the condition of the patient. If it is found that the patient is in dehydrated condition, then intravenous fluid is administered to replace the lost fluid and hydrate the body. Those patients who have high amount of accumulated fluid in the body are given diuretic medicines so that excess fluid can be eliminated. Such patients are also advised to limit the intake of liquid which should be in proportion to their urine output.

Some patients have too much of potassium in their blood which is bad for heart health. In this condition, blood potassium needs to be controlled with the help of suitable medicines. Calcium levels tend to go down in some patients and they need an infusion of calcium. Antibiotics are also prescribed to reduce the chances of any infection. Along with the medicines, proper renal failure diet is equally important in order to minimize toxin build up. A low protein diet with restricted use of salt and other electrolytes is often recommended for patients.

Some patients may have to undergo dialysis for removal of toxin build up in the body. In dialysis, the blood is pumped out of the body with the help of a machine that accesses the blood vessels and is then passed through an artificial kidney or dialyzer in order to filter out the waste products and excess potassium. After this procedure, the filtered blood is returned to the body. Nephrologists opt for dialysis when the patient does not respond well to other methods of treatment and there is a large amount of accumulated waste in the body.

With proper acute renal failure treatment, these patients recuperate in a matter of few weeks provided they do not have any other major health problems. Once they are cured, they can lead a normal life. However, elderly people and those patients who have chronic health problems or the kidneys have suffered a permanent damage may not be able to recover completely. They have to continue with medicines to maintain kidney function or have to undergo dialysis from time to time.

About 1 in 10 people have some degree of kidney disease. It can develop at any age and various conditions can lead to kidney failure. Kidney disease can affect people of all ages and races. African Americans, Hispanics, American Indians and people of South Asian origin (those from India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka or Pakistan) have a higher risk of kidney failure. This risk is due in part to high rates of diabetes and high blood pressure in these communities.
