If the disease is not treated, the parasitical infection can cause anemia, cardiac disease, kidney disease and endocrine failure.
Restless leg syndrome may be caused by anemia, pregnancy, some types of medications, alcohol, nicotine, or kidney disease.
Kidney failure - When the kidneys malfunction, body fluids including electrolytes go off balance, which can lead to muscle spasms.
Some diseases, such as Parkinson's disease, kidney disease, circulatory problems and heart disease can lead to cramping in the leg muscles even while you are sleeping.
Epoetin aids the body in producing red blood cells and is currently used to treat anemia associated with kidney disease or caused by some drugs.
Dietary sources of folic acid include: vegetables, especially green vegetables; potatoes; cereal and cereal products; fruits; and organ meats (liver or kidney).
NSAIDS should be used with care in patients with insufficient kidney function or coagulation disorders.
Blood chemistries will be done to help determine if liver or kidney problems are present.
The elderly also often have reduced kidney function or underlying diseases, or take medications that make them more vulnerable to dehydration.
If untreated, the disease eventually progresses to kidney failure and death.
Urinalysis is done to evaluate kidney function.
Henoch-Schönlein purpura-A syndrome sometimes classified as a hypersensitivity vasculitis, associated with a variety of digestive symptoms, pain in the joints, and kidney involvement.
Chronic illness, kidney disease treated by dialysis, and steroid use increase vulnerability to infection.

People who already have kidney or liver disease or liver infections should also consult with a physician before using the drug.
Untreated strep throat has the potential to cause scarlet fever, kidney damage, or rheumatic fever.
Kidney and bladder problems are also common.
Wilms' tumor is a cancerous tumor of the kidney that usually occurs in young children.
The cells mature and organize into the normal kidney structure.
These cells are also capable of invading nearby structures within the kidney and traveling out of the kidney into other structures.
Liver and kidney function testing will also be performed as well as a urinalysis.
Intravenous pyelography, in which a dye injected into a vein helps show the structures of the kidney, can also be used in diagnosing this type of tumor.
Treatment for Wilms' tumor almost always begins with surgery to remove or decrease the size of the kidney tumor.
Except in patients who have tumors in both kidneys, this surgery usually requires complete removal of the affected kidney.
In cases where the tumor affects both kidneys, surgeons will try to preserve the kidney with the smaller tumor by removing only a portion of the kidney, if possible.
This cell type is called clear cell sarcoma of the kidney.
Nutrient loss can be accelerated by diarrhea, excessive sweating, heavy bleeding (hemorrhage), or kidney failure.
Kidney and heart problems develop in adulthood.
A diet low in sodium and protein may be beneficial to those individuals who have some kidney complications.
If kidney problems progress, kidney dialysis or kidney transplantation may be required.

In patients with types A and B NPD, there is a build-up of sphingomyelin in cells of the brain, liver, spleen, kidney, and lung.
Treatment for scarlet fever is intended to offset the possibility of serious complications such as rheumatic fever (a heart disease) or kidney inflammation (glomerulonephritis) can develop.
Scarlet fever is caused by group A streptococcal bacteria (S. pyogenes), highly toxic microbes that can also cause strep throat, wound or skin infections, pneumonia, and serious kidney infections.
Not completing the course of therapy increases the risk of developing rheumatic fever and kidney inflammation.
The ureter drains urine from the kidney into the bladder.
It has a valve at its bottom end that prevents urine from flowing backward into the kidney.
Normally there is one ureter on each side of the body for each kidney.
Someone may have four kidneys and four ureters or two kidneys, half of each drained by a separate ureter, or a single kidney with two, three, or four ureters attached.
Besides infection, urine that backs up causes the ureter and the kidney to expand or dilate.
Eventually, the kidney stops functioning because of the back pressure.
This condition is called hydronephrosis (a kidney swollen with urine).
Ureterovesical valve-A sphincter (an opening controlled by a circular muscle), located where the ureter enters the bladder, that keeps urine from flowing backward toward the kidney.
Monitoring for recurrent infections is always a good idea, and occasional checking of kidney function will detect hidden ongoing damage.
Kidney disease is a serious complication that may develop if the disorder is not treated.
Left untreated, amyloidosis often leads to kidney failure, which is the major long-term health risk in FMF.
The mainstay of treatment for FMF is an oral medication called colchicine, which is highly effective for the fever and pain that accompany the disorder, as well as for amyloidosis and the kidney disease that can result from it.
Left untreated, however, those individuals who do develop amyloidosis of the kidneys may require a kidney transplant or may even die of renal failure.
Unexplained recurrent fevers, polyserositis, skin rash, and/or joint pain; abnormal blood studies (see below); and kidney or other disease associated with amyloidosis.
Colchicine is also effective in preventing, delaying, or reversing kidney disease associated with amyloidosis.
Dialysis and/or a kidney transplant might become necessary in someone with advanced kidney disease.
Many other injuries are possible after an electric shock, including cataracts, kidney failure, and destruction of muscle tissue.
Diagnosis relies on the information gathered about the circumstances of the electric shock, a thorough physical examination, and monitoring of cardiovascular and kidney activity.
Women with lupus (a disease caused by alterations in the immune system that result in inflammation of connective tissue and organs) or kidney disease face serious risks during pregnancy.
Transplantation of a healthy pancreas into a patient with type 1 diabetes can eliminate the need for insulin injections; however, this transplant is typically done only if a kidney transplant is performed at the same time.
Diabetic kidney disease is another common complications of diabetes.
Long-term complications may include the need for kidney dialysis or a kidney transplant due to kidney failure.
Diabetes is the number one cause of chronic kidney failure in America.
People with kidney and heart disease are at increased risk for over-hydration, so they must be carefully monitored when receiving IV therapy.

Some prenatal factors known to contribute to growth retardation include a variety of maternal health problems, including toxemia, kidney and heart disease, infections such as rubella and maternal malnutrition.
Copper accumulates in the liver, kidney, and brain, resulting in damage to the liver and nervous system.
In Menkes disease, which is usually first noticed in infancy, impaired transport of copper from the digestive tract results in low levels of copper in the blood, while copper accumulates in the kidney, pancreas, and skeletal muscle.
If left untreated, the type of bacteria causing this type of impetigo has the potential to cause a serious kidney disease (glomerulonephritis).
The affected person may also require treatment such as intravenous fluids for complications of poisoning such as shock, anemia, and kidney failure.
Itching that occurs all over the body may indicate a medical condition such as diabetes mellitus, liver disease, kidney failure, jaundice, thyroid disorders, or rarely, cancer.
In most cases, they do not interfere with kidney functioning.
Fatty growths within the kidneys (called angiolipomas) may grow so large that they cause pain and/or kidney failure.
Rarely, malignant tumors of the kidney (renal cell carcinoma) occur within an existing angiolipoma.
Surgery may be performed to remove enlarging kidney tumors, to avoid the advent of kidney failure.

EHEC can produce complications leading to hemolyticuremic syndrome (HUS), a potentially fatal disorder marked by the destruction of red blood cells and kidney failure.
About one-third of the survivors have long-term problems with kidney function, and another 8 percent develop high blood pressure, seizure disorders, and blindness.
Hemolytic-uremic syndrome (HUS)-A potentially fatal complication of E. coli infection characterized by kidney failure and destruction of red blood cells.

If only one kidney is affected and there is a normal amount of amniotic fluid, prenatal intervention is not required.
However, in addition to kidney damage, urinary tract obstructions can lead to multiple abnormalities and depleted amniotic fluid, which endangers the fetus and prevents the lungs from growing.
On rare occasions tetracyclines may cause more severe adverse effects, including kidney damage and drug-induced lupus.
Expired tetracycline has been known to cause a severe kidney problem called Fanconi syndrome.
Fanconi's syndrome-A group of disorders involving kidney tubule malfunction and glucose, phosphate, and bicarbonate in the urine.

Heart, liver, and kidney defects are also common, as well as vision and hearing problems.
Alcohol-related birth defects (ARBD) describes the physical defects linked to prenatal alcohol exposure, including heart, skeletal, kidney, ear, and eye malformations.
These tests may include a complete blood analysis, liver function tests, kidney function tests, hormone tests, and a lumbar puncture to determine abnormalities in cerebrospinal fluid.
There is usually a rise in blood pressure, and kidney failure can occur without prompt treatment.
Acute onset of renal vein thrombosis at any age causes pain in the lower back and sides of the abdomen, fever, bloody urine, decreased urine output, and sometimes kidney failure.
The doctor may also feel an enlarged kidney during a physical exam.
When examining the child, the doctor will palpate (feel) the child's abdomen to detect kidney enlargement.
