Acute Renal Failure (ARF) is the medical term for Kidney Disease when the kidneys stop functioning. ARF usually results from dehydration, toxins in the blood, damage to the kidneys, traumatic injury, pregnancy complications and obstruction of urine flow. Kidney Disease will most likely occur if athletes do not drink enough water, especially during long-distance endurance events, like marathons. When one or both kidneys start to fail, the individual will experience nausea, ankle swelling, insomnia, and dyspnea (shortness of breath).
Dealing with ARF can be taxing on one’s mental and emotional health. That is why it’s important to have a caregiver who is compassionate, experienced, and knowledgeable about Kidney Disease. A-1 Home Care offers exceptional live-in and live-out in-home health care service through their caregivers, home health aides, private duty nurses, and companions. They assist with regular blood pressure check, medication reminders, and special diet orders from the doctor.
