Hi, my mother is 67 years old and she had problems with her kidneys for a long time. She often had infections of her kidneys in the past. Last week she felt very sick so I took her to the hospital where renal failure was diagnosed. I would like to know why renal failure occurs.

Hello, there are many reasons which may cause renal failure. In your mother's case it may be chronic infection which lasted for some time. Such infection may cause inflammation of kidney tissue which will lead to the renal failure after some time if not cured. Also some medications may cause failure and it may be amfotericin B, ibuprofen and immunosuppressive medications.

Hello Kessia,

There are usually three main causes of kidney failure and one of them can be dehydration, not enough fluid in the can harm the kidneys.

Since your mother had serious and long-term health problems it is big possibility that her kidney problem is caused by medicines but off course you need to talk to the doctor’s about the cause of renal failure.

Some of the medicines which can cause kidney problems are antibiotics such as gentamicin and streptomycin, pain medicines such as aspirin and ibuprofen and some blood pressure medicines such as ACE inhibitors.

When treatment options are in question usually treatment is focused on the cause of the kidney failure.

For example if the cause of the kidney failure are medications which your mother is using, you will need to stop them.
