What Is The Process Of Kidney Damage?
Hello Wr, Wb.
Hello wr wb, Afifah DaQu, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Damaged kidneys can be caused by several things, such as:
2. Infections, either infections of the kidneys, other urinary tract, or systemic (whole body) infections
3. Kidney stones or urinary tract stones that cause blockage of urine, causing the kidneys to swell or hydronephrosis
5. Metabolic diseases such as uncontrolled diabetes mellitus
6. Autoimmune diseases (immune cells attack normal cells because they mistakenly “recognize” them as a disorder) that attack cells in the kidneys
7. Because drugs and certain substances are toxic to the kidneys
Each of the causes above have their own mechanism and way of working to cause kidney damage. Kidney damage can be temporary or permanent. If the kidneys are permanently damaged, then the patient is called kidney failure and requires dialysis or other things such as a kidney transplant to replace the function of the kidneys as a means to remove toxins from the body.
For more details and details about the mechanism of each cause of kidney damage, you can read the medical literature.
So, I hope it's useful.
