The following symptoms may occur with acute kidney failure. Some people have no symptoms, at least in the early stages. The symptoms may be very subtle.
Seizures and coma may occur in very severe acute kidney failure.
Self-treatment of acute kidney failure is not advisable. Kidney failure is a severe condition that necessitates medical care.
Some or all treatment may be possible at home, supervised by a home health nurse under the guidance of a healthcare provider.
In cases where kidney function does not fully recover, an artificial kidney may be necessary to remove excess water and accumulated waste. This is achieved through dialysis, a process that purifies the blood of waste products and excess water. When acuterenal failure requires dialysis, it is typically performed at a hospital or dialysis center. Homedialysis may be suitable for cases where kidney failure is permanent, and dialysis is needed indefinitely.
The patient's healthcare provider will schedule follow-up appointments based on the underlying cause of theirkidney failure and its severity. They will monitor the patient's underlying condition and conduct appropriate lab tests to ensure that the kidney failure has resolved. Preventive measures may be necessary in some cases to prevent a recurrence.
Yearly physical exams by a healthcare provider include blood tests and urinalysis to monitor kidney and urinary tract health.
Maintain adequate fluid intake to support proper kidney function.
Avoid substances or medications that can be harmful to or poison kidney tissues. Consult a healthcare provider for guidance on substances to avoid.
Individuals at risk of chronic kidney disease may require more frequent testing for kidney function and other issues associated with decliningkidney function. Difficulties with urination or the presence of blood in the urine should prompt a visit to your physician as soon as possible.
