Unspecified kidney failure (N19)

Clinical Information for Unspecified kidney failure (N19)

Hyperphosphatemia - A condition of abnormally high level of PHOSPHATES in the blood, usually significantly above the normal range of 0.84-1.58 mmol per liter of serum.

Calciphylaxis - Condition of induced systemic hypersensitivity in which tissues respond to appropriate challenging agents with a sudden local calcification.

Uremia - A clinical syndrome associated with the retention of renal waste products or uremic toxins in the blood. It is usually the result of RENAL INSUFFICIENCY. Most uremic toxins are end products of protein or nitrogen CATABOLISM, such as UREA or CREATININE. Severe uremia can lead to multiple organ dysfunctions with a constellation of symptoms.

Uremic Toxins - Biological solutes retained and accumulated due to kidney impairment that contribute to uremia/chronic kidney disease.

Phosphates - Inorganic salts of phosphoric acid.
