What kind of diseases cause Kidney failure?
I am writing a novel where the main character is going through a medical emergancy that requires her to have a kidney transplant, I am wondering two things specifically, the first is what kind of emergancy can it be, and the second if I want her to have a set amount of time 6-9 months in which to recieve the transplant which condition would best fit in those perameters. Thank You
Diabetes for all I know destroys the kidneys.
Stage 4 at least.
Good luck with your book.
Here are just a few, diabetes mellitus, urinary tract obstruction, polycystic kidney disease, glomerulonephritis, and systemic lupus erythematosus.
Hypertension. Eventually, this will do your kidneys in. That's how my FIL went.
•Polycystic kidney disease
Just to name a few. Ahh the joys of being a nurse, need anything else let me know, if I don't know it I will dig out my nursing school books.
The answer is yes in that diabites,highbloodpresure are main dieseases associated with kindney failiure.
a single dose of motrin or alleve
in addition to things already mentioned
there is no set amount of time in which to receive a transplant in any kind of renal failure. they all respond to dialysis - hemo or peritoneal.
