The kidneys are two bean-shaped organs located below the ribs on either side of your spine. They are quite small compared to the rest of the body, but around 25% of the blood your heart pumps every minute is directed towards this organ. The kidneys have very important functions, and they are essential to eliminate certain toxins and metabolic wastes that your body no longer needs and might become a problem if they are retained in your blood for a long time. Additionally, they have a regulator system that detects your blood pressure and maintains a healthy cardiovascular function. That is why renal failure is a worrying problem that will become life-threatening if not promptly treated.
Renal failure can be acute or chronic depending on the cause, but the majority of signs and symptoms are common for both conditions. They include the following:
1- Reduced volume of urine
The main function of the kidneys is inspecting the blood and eliminating any excess, including excess water. The kidneys are responsible for creating urine, and one of the main symptoms of renal failure is a reduction in the volume of urine that is eliminated every day. This reduction in the volume
of urine is maintained even in patients who drink enough water because the main cause is that the kidneys are becoming unable to process blood and create urine.
