What are the 5 common causes of kidney failure?

Kidneys are an important part of the human body that performs the vital function of filtration of wastes from the body. Located on the lower back, they are located on each side of your spine. However, kidney failure occurs when the kidneys become incapable of filtering the wastes and retaining the good elements.
Now, what will happen as a result? The toxins start getting loaded in the body and the situation can become life-threatening. This severity causes kidney failure and makes the person devoid of leading his normal life again. The doctors then eventually put the patients on dialysis or suggest kidney transplants.


The are numerous and need to be understood in order to take precautions. Some of the major reasons are discussed below:
Acute and chronic diseases
Our body gets affected by several short-term and long-term diseases that affect us in several ways. If the issue is not addressed at the right time, it starts affecting the other body organs and causes overall damage. Therefore, it becomes important to find a natural Ayurvedic solution to the ailments.
Excessive dehydration
Dehydration, particularly chronic dehydration, results in the production of urine that contains more minerals and toxic substances. This can result in the formation of crystallites, which can impair kidney function and contribute to kidney diseases like kidney stones. A much more severe condition leads to kidney failure.
Decreased blood flow to kidneys
An abrupt interference in the blood flow to the kidneys leads to its malfunctioning and causes kidney failure. Some of the medical conditions that lead to kidney failure are sepsis, allergic reactions, liver scarring, and certain heart diseases.
Exposure to toxins
Often, medical conditions originate as a result of exposure to certain pollutants or chemicals while at work or in some other areas. When the issues develop through work, the condition is termed occupational disorder. Exposure to chemicals like benzene, degreasing agents, and organic solvents like paints and fuels may become the cause of kidney failure.
Issues with urine elimination
Often, the urinary passages are blocked or obstructed due to disease development. The body, when unable to remove the toxins, increases the load on the kidneys. Further, urination issues are caused by an enlarged prostate, kidney stones, and the formation of blood clots.


The kidney failure types are determinants of the stage that you have reached and how the treatment route will be directed. Let’s discuss them below:
Acute intrinsic kidney failure
Acute intrinsic kidney failure can occur as a result of direct trauma to the kidneys, such as a physical damage or an injury. Toxin overabundance and ischemia, a lack of oxygen to the kidneys, are two other causes. Ischemia can be triggered by severe blood loss, shock, renal blood vessel blockage, and glomerulonephritis, a condition in which the tiny blood vessels in your kidneys become swollen and painful.
Acute prerenal kidney failure
Prerenal acute kidney failure. Inadequate blood flow to the kidneys can result in acute prerenal kidney failure. The kidneys cannot filter waste products from the blood if there is insufficient blood flow. Once the cause of the decreased blood flow is identified, this type of kidney failure is usually curable.
Chronic intrinsic kidney failure
This occurs when the kidneys sustain long-term damage as a result of intrinsic renal disease. Intrinsic kidney disease occurs as a result of direct kidney trauma, such as severe bleeding or a lack of oxygen.
Chronic prerenal kidney failure
When your kidneys do not receive enough blood for a prolonged amount of time, they begin to diminish and lose their ability to function.
Chronic post-renal kidney failure
In this condition, the urinary passage gets blocked and creates pressure. This causes kidney failure to the individual.


The when approached through Ayurveda offers several therapeutic effects and does not lead to any side effects. If the condition is detected earlier, the kidney damage can be reversed along with strengthening the kidneys.
There are various well-known herbs that are administered for restoring kidney functioning and letting the patient recover effectively. While popular diuretic herbs such as 'Varuna' are good blood purifiers that aid in homeostasis maintenance, 'Gokhuru' is beneficial in rejuvenating kidney nephrons.
