Abstract:

This six-page illustrated handout educates people about kidney failure, also called renal failure, which is when the kidneys cannot remove excess fluid, minerals, and wastes from the body because of disease or injury. It explains the role of healthy kidneys in bodily functions, and clarifies that a person can live a healthy life with one kidney. It identifies the two kinds of kidney failure as acute and chronic, and discusses the causes and treatment options for each condition.
