Every hour, 1 Filipino suffers from chronic renal failure, and it amounts to approximately 120 Filipinos per million population yearly.
Over 5,000 patients receive dialysis treatments, and about 1.1 million people globally undergo renal replacement therapy.
Kidney failure arises when the kidneys become vulnerable and unable to function correctly.
Sakit sa Kidney: Most Common Disorders
Here are the seven most common kidney disorders.
Sakit sa kidney that causes blood in urine
Blood in urine, or hematuria, may indicate a problem with your kidneys or another part of the urinary tract. Some of its risk factors may include aging, kidney inflammation, family history, current medications, and strenuous workouts. This may also be due to dehydration after exercise, uncontrolled hypertension and diabetes or a long standing kidney disease
This condition does not always mean kidney failure. But since kidney complications can lead to kidney disease, consulting a doctor as quickly as possible is vital to addressing the problem.
Sakit sa kidney due to acute injury
Previously known as acute renal failure, acute kidney injury happens when the kidneys unexpectedly stop functioning well as they should. When the kidneys fail, electrolytes, waste products, and fluids pile up in the patient’s body.
