What is kidney impairment?

Impaired kidney function is when your kidneys are not working as well as they should. Normally, kidneys remove fluid, chemicals, and waste from your blood. These wastes are removed from your body in the urine made by your kidneys. If impaired kidney function is not treated or gets worse, it may lead to long-term kidney disease or kidney failure.

What are the signs of end-of-life kidney failure?

Change in Urination. Usually the most obvious sign of kidney distress is a change in the habits of urination.

What are the chances of death from kidney failure? Acute Renal Failure Acute renal failure is a sudden but usually reversible loss of renal function.
