Q: 

What Is Chronic renal failure?

A: Chronic renal failure is a medical condition characterized by a steady decline in kidney function over time. By contrast, in acute renal failure, the kidneys fail abruptly and sometimes catastrophically. It is not usually possible to cure chronic renal failure, unless resolving the cause reverses the progression of the kidney disease, and eventually the patient will require dialysis or transplant to replace the damaged kidneys. This condition is also known as chronic kidney disease (CKD), kidney failure, or renal insufficiency. A number of things can bring about...

What Should Creatine Values Be In A Feline With renal failure?

A: Cats can have a slightly higher serum creatinine value when compared to humans. In humans values of 1. 5 mg/dL will get you worried, while in cats values of up to 2 mg/dL (even up to 2. 5) can be normal. A sudden rise in the value is not good!

Q: 

What Is acute Kidney failure?

A: acute kidney failure is a sudden, very dangerous loss of kidney functioning. When the kidneys stop filtering blood properly, toxins and waste fluids can build up in the bloodstream in life-threatening amounts. acute kidney failure can be caused by defects within the organs themselves, insufficient blood flow into the kidneys, or problems expelling waste after it leaves them. An individual experiencing sudden renal failure many feel fatigued and drowsy, and notice swelling in the extremities and an inability to urinate. Seizures, coma, or death can occur if dialysis procedures and treatments for underlying problems are not addressed...

Contrast dye and renal failure

A: Your brotherís heart condition is considered serious given the fact that a stent is already in place. Any procedure has to be considered carefully if there is a chance it can help him.
