Some factors can speed up kidney failure. If you can eliminate them, you can slow down the progression or even stop it. Here we list 8 of them.

1. Infections

It is the main cause of kidney function impairment. Because of poor immunity, kidney patients are likely to catch infections. And the infected sites are usually at skin, lung and urinary tract.

2. Urinary obstruction

Many factors can cause urinary obstruction, such as stones and tumor. Because of urinary obstruction, urine can not be passed out timely, which easily leads to infections. On the other hand, the elevated hydrostatic pressure in pelvis can also damage your kidneys further.

3. High blood pressure

No matter your high blood pressure is primary or secondary, it can speed up renal arteriosclerosis so as to impair kidney function. If your blood pressure can not be controlled well with ACEI or ARBs, calcium channel blockers can be used together.

4. Hypovolemia

Because strict salt and water intake, and the use of diuretics, the absorption of renal tubules to sodium will decrease, leading to dehydration and hypovolemia. As a result, GFR will decrease and kidney function will be damaged.

5. Acidosis

If your uric acid level is very high, allopurinol, benzbromarone and some other medications can be used to lower it.

6. Electrolyte disturbance

Low blood calcium, high blood phosphorus and the deposition of calcium phosphate can worsen your kidney function. Besides, the decreased intake of potassium and the use of diuretics may cause low blood potassium level.

7. The abuse of medicine with renal toxicity

Because of declined kidney function, ingredients of medicine can not be passed out of body timely. As a result, they build up in blood, causing damage to kidneys. Medicines especially those with renal toxicity do much harm to your kidneys.

8. Over intake of protein

Too much protein intake can result in massive waste products, which can increase the burden of your kidneys so as to impair kidney function. Fresh vegetables and fruits are recommended to kidney patients.
