Chronic renal failure is usually the result of a disease or kidney damage for many years, such as contact with toxic substances, trauma or normal aging. The terrible thing about kidney failure is that the kidney damage is irreversible. Kidneys will gradually become unable to effectively remove the waste in the blood, which eventually leads to chronic renal failure. Although the kidneys are constantly exposed to various toxins and their functions will be slowly lost… but in fact, the kidneys can maintain normal functioning as long as they maintain more than a quarter of their functions. Therefore, how to detect kidney disease early and how to avoid it is very important!
