Kidney disease is a growing concern for people over the age of 60. Recent estimates indicate that almost half of the senior population over age 75 have some form of kidney disease.
Kidney disease can sneak up on you before you are aware of the signs and symptoms of the disease.
It is important to know how to recognize the signs of kidney infection in the elderly, how to identify the causes of decreased kidney function in the elderly, and how to improve kidney function in the elderly.
Kidney Function in Elderly Adults Our blood is filtered through the kidneys. Declining kidney function in the elderly can trigger health problems ranging from simple kidney infections in the elderly to the kidneys shutting down in elderly patients.
Let’s look at some of the signs of kidney failure and kidney disease in the elderly population so we can understand what causes kidney failure in elderly adults.
The importance of early diagnosis and subsequent treatment is imperative to assure the best possible quality of life for our loved ones.
Diabetes is one of the major causes of kidney disease in elderly adults. Damage to the kidneys can occur even if the diabetes is controlled by diet or medication.
Gender plays a part in the onset of chronic kidney failure in the elderly. Women are more likely than men to suffer from urinary tract infections as they age.
Infections can lead to chronic kidney failure in the elderly population. Proper toileting hygiene is essential, especially if your loved one is unable to manage toileting without assistance.
High Blood Pressure can cause damage to the kidneys as well as the heart.
Renovascular Disease is a narrowing of the artery that leads to the kidney. As this condition progresses, the narrowing of the vessel prohibits adequate blood flow to the kidney. This leads to decreased kidney function in elderly people that can result in chronic kidney failure and eventual kidney shut down.
