  • This, as well as scarcity of donor organs for kidney transplantation has prompted research in developing alternative therapies, including the development of a wearable or implantable device. (wikipedia.org)
  • normally
  • Normally, the major work of kidney is to excrete various toxic substances and wastes products out of body and absorb useful substances such as red blood cells and proteins into body again. (kidneyfailureweb.com)
  • This can result in: Feeling tired or weak Memory problems Difficulty concentrating Dizziness Low blood pressure Normally, proteins are too large to pass through the kidneys, however, they are able to pass through when the glomeruli are damaged. (wikipedia.org)
  • Vitamin D- Normally, the kidney changes vitamin D into its active form, vitamin D3, which helps you absorb calcium. (wikipedia.org)
  • erythropoietin

  • body's

  • Risk factors for HN include poorly controlled moderate to high blood pressure, older age, other kidney disorders. (wikipedia.org)
  • and Afro-Caribbean background - unclear whether this is due to them being more genetically susceptible to kidney damage by hypertension or whether it is because of poor management of high blood pressure amongst them. (wikipedia.org)
