Renal Insufficiency

Renal insufficiency means the kidneys are not working properly. The kidneys’ major function is to remove waste and unnecessary elements from the blood. This waste is then eliminated in urine.

When the kidneys do not function properly, the blood is not being cleaned. This can cause a build up of unwanted electrolytes, such as potassium and sodium, in the blood. These electrolytes play an important role in the body, and it’s important to keep them at the right levels. People with poorly functioning kidneys may experience high blood pressure and heart issues among other concerns.
