How is renal failure treated?

Acute renal failure/AKI

Most causes of acute renal failure or AKI can be treated and the kidney function will return to normal with time. Replacement of the kidney function by dialysis (artificial kidney) may be necessary until kidney function has returned.

Chronic renal failure

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is initially diagnosed and classified on the basis of a blood test, which looks at your kidney function and estimates how well they are extracting waste products from the blood stream.

How is renal failure treated?

Deterioration in kidney function occurs naturally as we get older, but some people's kidneys deteriorate more quickly than others, depending on their previous medical history (eg episode(s) of AKI) and ongoing medical illness, such as high blood pressure and diabetes.

CKD is classified into stages depending on the estimated glomerular filtration rate (EGFR) calculated from the blood sample.

Most healthy adults fall into stages 1 and 2. As we get into the later years of life, or if we are unfortunate enough to have suffered significant episodes of AKI or other illnesses associated with deterioration in kidney function, we may find ourselves with stage 3 CKD following the test.
