Conditions & Treatments

Acute kidney failure – the sudden loss of the kidney’s ability to remove waste from the body

Acute nephritic syndrome – a set of kidney disorders that can lead to swelling or inflammation of internal parts of the kidney

Analgesic nephropathy – damage caused to one or both kidneys due to too much of a mixture of medications, commonly seen when there is an overexposure to over-the-counter pain medications

Congenital nephrotic syndrome – a genetically-passed disorder in which a baby develops protein in the urine that causes swelling in the body

Chronic renal failure - the gradual loss of the kidney's ability to remove body waste

Goodpasture syndrome – a rare disease that causes kidney failure and lung disease

Hypertension - high blood pressure

Interstitial nephritis – a disorder in which the areas between the kidney tubes become inflamed, which can affect the kidney’s ability to manage the body’s waste

Kidney removal – surgery performed to remove all or part of a person’s kidney

Kidney stone – a group of tiny crystals that are difficult to pass through the body

Kidney transplant – the placement of a healthy kidney in a patient with kidney failure

Lithotripsy – the use of shock waves to break up stones that have formed in the kidney, bladder or the tubes that drain urine from the kidneys to the bladder

Lupus nephritis – a kidney disorder, caused by the autoimmune disease, systemic lupus erythematosus

Membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis – a kidney disorder that leads to inflammation of the kidney, as well as tiny changes to the kidney’s cells that lead to disruption of the kidney’s normal processes

Membranous nephropathy – a kidney disorder that causes inflammation and structural changes inside the kidney, leading to problems with the kidney’s normal processes

Nephrocalcinosis – a kidney disorder in which an excess amount of calcium is left in the kidneys

Polycystic kidney disease – a genetically-passed kidney disorder in which multiple cysts form on the kidneys, causing them to enlarge

Post-streptococcal GN – a kidney disorder caused by infection with particular strains of the Streptococcus (strep) bacteria

Posterior urethral valve - the presence of valves within the urethra that block the urine flowing out of the bladder

Vesicoureteral reflux - The back-up of urine toward the kidney

Reflux nephropathy – Kidney damage due to vesicoureteral reflux

Renal papillary necrosis – a condition in which all or part of the openings of the kidney’s collecting ducts die

Renal artery or vein thrombosis – a blood clot in the artery or vein in which blood passes from the kidney

Renal tubular acidosis - the build-up of body acid caused when kidneys fail to excrete body acids
