Risk Factors for Kidney failure


About risk factors: Risk factors for Kidney failure are factors that do not seem to be a direct cause of the disease, but seem to be associated in some way. Having a risk factor for Kidney failure makes the chances of getting a condition higher but does not always lead to Kidney failure. Also, the absence of any risk factors or having a protective factor does not necessarily guard you against getting Kidney failure. For general information and a list of risk factors, see the risk center.
