Chronic Kidney Failure

Causes and risk factors associated with Chronic Kidney Failure

Reading time: 1 min

The most common causes of chronic kidney disease are:

Tensiometer

High blood pressure. High blood pressure damages the smallest blood vessels in the kidneys and prevents them from filtering correctly.   

high sugar levels

Diabetes. If diabetes is poorly controlled, then sugar accumulates in the blood and reduces renal filtration capacity. 

Patients often present both high blood pressure and diabetes together, which consequently increases the damage to the kidneys. Correct control over high blood pressure and diabetes slows the progression of chronic kidney disease and decreases cardiovascular risk.
