Acute Renal Failure

Acute renal failure happens when the kidneys stop working. The kidneys normally filter waste products from the blood and help maintain the balance of water and electrolytes in the body. When they stop working, it is a medical emergency. But acute renal failure can be treated and the kidneys can recover.

Joining our online support group for acute renal failure will help you and your family deal with the stress of this condition and meet professionals and doctors who can help.
