understand the causes of kidney failure

Fausto Silva, better known as Faustão, was admitted to Hospital Israelita Albert Einstein, in São Paulo, due to the worsening of a chronic kidney disease. The presenter had to undergo a kidney transplant, after having faced serious heart failure just six months earlier. It is important to understand the causes of chronic kidney failure and the treatment options available to those facing this condition.

Understanding chronic kidney disease

Chronic kidney disease is a serious condition in which the kidneys progressively lose the ability to filter metabolic waste from the blood. Among the most common causes are diseases such as diabetes and hypertension, as well as genetic conditions such as polycystic kidney disease.

Symptoms can range from frequent urination at night to fatigue, nausea, itching and swelling of the body. Early diagnosis and appropriate treatment are essential to manage the progression of the disease and improve patients' quality of life.

The treatment of chronic renal failure varies depending on the stage of the disease and the individual needs of each patient. This may include nutritional measures to control blood pressure and reduce the burden on the kidneys, as well as medications to slow the progression of the disease.Â

In advanced stages, dialysis may be necessary to filter the blood of waste and excess fluid. However, for many patients, kidney transplantation is the best option, offering the chance of a more normal life and reducing dependence on kidney replacement treatments.

Family members reported that, when the presenter underwent a heart transplant the previous year, his kidneys were already compromised, leading him to undergo hemodialysis.
