Kidney Disease
  Other Renal disease

Your kidneys are two bean-shaped organs, each about the size of your fist. They're located at the back of your upper abdomen, on either side of your spine. Their main function is to eliminate excess fluid and wastes from your body by filtering them out of your blood. When your kidneys lose their filtering ability, dangerous levels of fluid and waste accumulate in your body — a condition known as kidney failure.

One form of kidney failure — chronic kidney failure — usually develops slowly, with few signs or symptoms in the early stages. Many people with chronic kidney failure don't realize they have a problem until their kidney function has decreased to less than 25 percent of normal. High blood pressure and diabetes are the most common causes of chronic kidney failure.

Sometimes kidney failure happens suddenly (acute kidney failure). This is most likely to occur after complicated surgery or a severe injury, with certain medication exposure, or when blood vessels leading to your kidneys become blocked.

The main goal of treatment of chronic kidney failure is to halt or delay progression of the disease. Chronic kidney failure can progress to end-stage kidney disease, where the kidneys function at a fraction of normal capacity. At this point, you'll need either artificial filtering (dialysis) or a kidney transplant to stay alive.
