  • 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.

    Typical symptoms

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

     Statistics

    The Swedish multi-generation register on 0–78-year-old subjects were linked to the Swedish patient register and the Cause of death register for 1987–2010. Individuals diagnosed with acute kidney failure (n?=?10063), chronic kidney failure (n?=?18668), or unspecified kidney failure (n?=?3731) were included. The concordant (same disease) familial risks (sibling/parent history) were increased for chronic kidney failure SIR?=?2.02 (95% confidence interval, CI 1.90–2.14) but not for acute kidney failure SIR?=?1.08 (95% CI 0.94–1.22) and for unspecified kidney failure SIR?=?1.25 (95% CI 0.94–1.63). However, the discordant (different disease) familial risk for acute kidney failure SIR?=?1.19 (95% CI 1.06–1.32) and unspecified kidney failure SIR?=?1.63 (95% CI 1.40–1.90) was significantly increased in individuals with a family history of chronic kidney failure.
