What causes organ failure? The most common triggers and warning signs identified

Diabetes is the most common cause of kidney failure, according to the American Kidney Foundation, but high blood pressure, autoimmune diseases such as lupus, genetic diseases, and urinary tract problems can also lead to organ failure.

In rare cases of acute kidney failure, the kidneys can fail very quickly – within a few days. In these cases, organ failure is most commonly caused by heart attacks or illicit drug use and abuse.

According to the Journal of Kidney Nutrition, recent research also suggests that rapid weight loss and weight gain may contribute to kidney failure.

Kidney failure can be identified by a number of symptoms, including:

  • Itching
  • muscle cramps
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • I don’t feel hungry
  • Swelling in the legs and ankles
  • Too much urine (urine) or not enough urine
  • Breathing problems
  • Sleep problems

In the case of acute renal failure, patients may also experience:

  • Abdominal (animal) pain
  • Backache
  • Diarrhea
  • Heat
  • nosebleeds
  • Rash
  • Vomit

Treatment options for kidney failure are limited, and patients usually require dialysis or transplantation to survive.
