Kidney failure

What do the kidneys do?
In order for blood to perform its essential functions of bringing nutrients and oxygen to the cells of the body, and carrying waste materials away from those cells, the chemical composition of the blood must be carefully controlled.
The kidneys play a crucial role in this process by filtering the blood under high pressure and removing potential toxins, which are excreted from the body in the urine. Every day the kidneys filter the body's entire blood volume seven or eight times.

What is kidney failure?
When the kidneys start to fail, toxins are not filtered out of the blood, and start accumulate in the tissues. This can lead to a range of problems. Build up of two waste products, urea and creatinine, can lead to tiredness, weakness, loss of appetite and vomiting. Accumulation of acid generated during the body's metabolic processes can lead to a condition called metabolic acidosis. Failure to get rid of phosphate, causes the blood phosphate level to increase and calcium level to fall. When calcium level is low, bones will become brittle. The kidney may also lose its ability to produce erythropoietin, resulting in anaemia. Kidney failure is also associated with an increase in the volume of water in the body which can result in a swelling of the tissues. Excess salt and water retention may cause high blood pressure, swelling of the legs, face, abdomen and breathlessness.
What causes kidney failure?
The common causes of kidney failure are glomerulonephritis (inflammation of the kidney) and diabetes mellitus. Other causes of kidney failure are kidney stones, kidney cysts, an immune disorder called systemic lupus erythematosus, uncontrolled high blood pressure and drugs.
What are the symptoms?

As the kidneys begin to fail the following symptoms can begin develop:

  • pale and sallow complexion

  • fatigue

  • shortness of breath

  • body itch

  • poor appetite, sometimes accompanied with nausea and vomiting

  • swelling of the face and legs

  • disruption of urination patterns

How is it treated?
The most common treatment is by dialysis, a technique which artificially mimics the action of the kidneys.
What is dialysis?

There are two types of dialysis. Haemodialysis is the most frequently prescribed type of dialysis treatment. It involves circulating the patient's blood outside of the body through a series of tubes.
The blood is filtered in a way similar to that used by the kidneys by using a chemical bath to draw out waste products. Most haemodialysis patients require treatment three times a week, for an average of 3-4 hours per dialysis. Less common is a technique known as peritoneal dialysis, in which the lining of the abdomen acts a blood filter.
Is a transplant an option?

For the right patient at the right time, a transplant is the best treatment for kidney failure. If it works well the patient will be totally free from dialysis. Many patients with kidney failure are suitable for a transplant.

 Be The Change 
Assalam-O-Alaikum
Wishes for a happy year to you all. May Allah make this year a peaceful one for the whole humanity. Ameen.
The last sun of the year 2008 has set. Each year that pass, leaves behind it memories of a lot of incidents and events that happened during the year. Some of these happenings are soon forgotten. But there are some which influence others and leave a lasting impression on those whose lives were affected by it.
New Year brings in new hope. Usually people make several resolutions for the upcoming year. However these resolutions are often forgotten within few weeks and never materialize. One reason for failed resolutions is that often they are far-fetched dreams. Resolutions should be realistic and more importantly objective. Resolutions are like promises and it is more important to keep your promises than to make them.
Seeing the current world situation, we all need to pledge to make every possible effort to ensure more peace in the world. This year we shall all aim to spread the word of peace, to highlight the importance of living in peace and harmony. We have lost the respect of others and that’s why we cannot tolerate the difference of opinion. Often these result in discord. The best way to achieve peace is to accept others’ rights and respect them.
Man is a social animal. Our environment greatly influences us. Sometimes it so happens that we make a promise to our self to do a particular good deed. For example, we decide not to break traffic signal, but once we are on road and see others violating traffic laws, we also let go our resolve and join the crowd. It is high time that we become the change that we want to see. We need to change our environment because what we see each day influences us. But ‘we’ is collective form of ‘I’. Realize this, once YOU change, then ‘you’ will become what others SEE and they may change because they SEE ‘you’. Once we are able to change what we see, it will affect what we do.
With the dawn of the New Year 2009, let us make a resolution to bring a positive revolution by being the change we want to see.
Let us sincerely pray to God that the New Year brings with it happiness, peace and prosperity for everybody
See you next time, Allah Hafiz.
Ms. Amna Tariq Holy City of Makkah-Ul-Mukarrama
