Chronic kidney failure also known as “chronic kidney insufficiency” is the advanced stage of various kidney disease. With the development of the illness, chronic kidney failure will finally develop into end-stage kidney failure, which will threaten the life of the patients. So what is the causes of chronic kidney failure on earth?

In specific, as the progressive renal damage, the effective nephrons decrease and cannot well remove the metabolic wastes and keep the stable environment of the body, which will lead to the buildup of the metabolic wastes and the disorder of water, electrolyte and acid-base balance.

Anything that can cause the damage of nephron can lead to chronic kidney failure. The most common one is chronic glomerulonephritis. Hypertensive glomerular sclerosis, chronic interstitial nephritis are also the common diseases. Other diseases like polycystic kidney, lithangiuria and diabetic glomerular sclerosis can also result in chronic kidney failure.

The gradual progress of chronic kidney failure is not only have a relationship with the progression of the primary diseases but also other factors. The followings are the other causes of chronic kidney failure.

-Hypertension: hypertension not only can speed up the damage of kidney function, but also can injure heart, brain and the surrounding vessels and other organs, thus cause trouble to the prognosis of the patients with chronic kidney failure.

-Proteinuria: the studies show that the overmuch of albumin and transferrin can cause the produce of harmful substance in renal tubular fluid, which will lead to the damage on glomerular and renal tubular. It can also stimulate the secretion of growth factor in kidney, conducing to the progression of renal fibrosis.

-High protein diet: high protein diet can lead to high filtration and high metabolism of glomerular, which will increase proteinuria and damage on nephridial tissues.

-Toxin: the retention of the toxins in the blood will accelerate the further injury of kidney function and other organs.

In addition, anemia and malnutrition may also promote the progression of chronic kidney failure.
