There are two kidneys in the human body.
The size of each equals that of a fist and it’s situated at either side of the Spinal cord at lowest level of the rib cage.
The kidneys perform their life sustaining work of filtering and returning to the bloodstream about two hundred quarts of fluid every 24 hours.
Again about two quarts are removed from the body in the form of urine, and almost about 198 quarts are recovered. Hence, the urine we excrete has been stored in our bladders for 1-8hours.
However, when these kidneys damage or become faulty, then there is fire on the mountain.
One of the foremost problems here is the inability of your heart to maintain continuous flowing of blood to our kidneys which are very dangerous.
A sudden blockage of blood flow to your kidneys can prompt kidney failure.
Some conditions that cause blockage of blood flow to the kidneys are:
1. a heart attack
When plaque within a heart artery breaks, a blood clot forms around the plaque. This blood clot can block the blood flow through the artery to the kidneys. Ischemia results when the heart muscles is starved for oxygen and nutrients.
2. heart disease
A severe heart diseases such as felum can cause stoppage of blood going into kidneys which may prevents them to perform their life-changing functions assigned to them. So, it is important to consult your doctor once you notice abnormal symptom relating to heart problems.
3. scaring of the liver or liver failure
The liver is a very Hardy organ and is normally able to regenerate damaged cell. Cirrhosis develops when the factors that damage the liver( such as alcohol and chronic viral infections)are present over a long period of time. When this happens, the liver cannot function very well, and ultimately this may result to blockage of flowing blood into kidneys.
The first two elements of the cardiovascular system that dehydration impacts are your heart rate and blood pressure.When the body is dehydrated,blood vessels cannot stretch enough due to the reduction in blood volume. Your heart rate increases to compensate and attempts to pump more blood but all to no avail.This results to blockage of blood into your kidneys.
5. a severe burn
If you have suffered extensive injuries, the fluid loss through burns is significant. Without rapid and effective resuscitation, your body can loose large amount of fluids, making the circulation in your blood vessels sluggish or block.
