  • Acute kidney failure

     Acute kidney failure occurs when your kidneys suddenly become unable to filter waste products from your blood. When your kidneys lose their filtering ability, dangerous levels of wastes may accumulate, and your blood's chemical makeup may get out of balance due to loss of electrolytes.Acute kidney failure — also called acute renal failure or acute kidney injury — develops rapidly over a few hours or a few days. Acute kidney failure can be fatal and requires intensive treatment. However, acute kidney failure may be reversible.

    Typical symptoms

    Decreased urine output, normal Fluid retention, causing swelling in your legs, ankles or feet, Drowsiness, Shortness of breath, Fatigue, Confusion, Seizures or coma in severe cases, Chest pain or pressure.

    Chronic kidney disease (CKD) affects a significant percentage of the Italian population, particularly among the elderly. It is estimated that more than 300 patients per million population (pmp) are diagnosed as having CKD each year, and about 0.8% of Italians are thought to have serum creatinine levels >=1.5 mg/dL. The number of patients being admitted to renal replacement therapies (RRT) has been growing up rapidly in the last decades, leading to 134 patients pmp starting RRT throughout 2000 and to 804 patients pmp on chronic RRT in the same year. As such therapies are very expensive, CKD must be therefore considered as a striking problem also by a socio-economical point of view. As a consequence, any medical intervention being able to halt or at least to slow down the progression of CKD and/or to prevent the development of related complications or comorbidities is of paramount importance.
