What is kidney or renal failure? The word renal refers to the kidneys. If one or both kidneys fail completely and the damage cannot be reversed, the condition is called renal failure or end-stage renal disease (ESRD). When this occurs, your kidneys can no longer filter wastes well enough to keep you healthy. Treatments for kidney failure include dialysis and/or transplantation.
Why do kidneys fail? Most kidney diseases attack the nephrons (tiny filtering units within the kidneys), causing them to lose their filtering capacity. Damage to the nephrons can happen quickly, often as the result of injury, underlying diseases, or poisoning. However, often the damage will only become apparent after many years.
