Many of you know here about me and I'm open about it. Before I used to be ashamed and afraid of myself because of my sickness. Then later on, with people surrounding me with a positive mind, I learned to accept and embrace this new life for me to be able to inspire people. Renal Failure or Kidney Failure is a medical condition where damage kidneys are not doing their job anymore, in short fail to clean toxic waste from the blood. It has many causes. In order for you to prevent this kind of sickness which I know is rampant nowadays. These would help us. 1. Quit Smoking and Drinking Liquor. 2. Stop eating salty and fatty foods. 3. If you are diabetic, be sure to talk to a dietitian to develop a diabetes meal plan. 4. Make Physical activity part of your routine. 5. Be sure to have a healthy weight or stay at normal weight. 6. Have enough sleep at least 7 to 8 hours. 7. Drink water all the time. 8. Don't hold your pee. 9. Check from time to time your Blood pressure. 10. Do not take over-the-counter pills on a regular basis or antibiotics. Always consult your Doctor. 11. Maintain a positive attitude and outlook. They said if your sad and lonely, kidneys can feel that too. 12. Don’t keep your feelings inside. If you feel very stress, talk to someone. It will help make your kidneys function well. 13. Be happy all the time. If you are happy, kidneys will do the same for you. I hope this information will help us. Photo was taken from Google.

Is there a chance that you could get a kidney transplant?

My high school friend is going through renal failure, because of un-diagnosed diabetes. Now, she needs dialysis every single day:(

@Kandae11 She went into congestive heart failure, because her kidneys stopped functioning.

Shelly went into renal failure and congestive heart failure. They almost lost her, but now she's at home, doing a little better. I spoke with her and Bob, her husband, yesterday. Why she is on dialysis every day, I didn't ask. I knew one man who had dialysis twice a week. He is a diabetic, also.

I see that is why she needs to undergo dialysis every day. I know the feeling. Having a congestive heart is so difficult.

@JustBhem Shelly was supposedly healthy. Then, she went into congestive heart failure and into a hospital, only to find out she has been a diabetic, but didn't know it. Then, the renal failure both her kidneys stopped working. They kept her in the hospital for about two weeks, to save her life. Now she's at home, receiving daily dialysis.

@kobesbuddy Now I know she is on Peritoneal Dialysis. Where she can do that at home. If a person is a diabetic some affect the kidneys.

i wonder...what caused you to have renal disease? if it is hereditary as you mentioned before, haven't you restricted the precipitating factors that would have possibly led you into the kidney disease?

At first, I was wondering why I'm having this illness. When Mother was also diagnosed same with me, the Doctor of mine finally told us, I got it from my Mother. So that means, Mother is all responsible for my illness. Maybe she tried to let me go when I was inside her womb, or maybe she was devastated for having me, that only proves since I was growing she never like me at all.

@JustBhem but she should be a mother to you because she was the one who gave you that illness. even if she wanted to abort you, the illness will still remain in her system. she should not put the blame on you.

@ridingbet I think she's blaming me why Father is not affectionate to her. I don't know. That's what I observed.

I heard about this. One of my paternal Uncle was on dialysis for four years before he passed away. But he was a drunker and smoker before he got the problem. ..
