How do your kidneys get damaged?

    Kidneys can be damaged by dehydration or obstructions to the kidney functions, such as kidney stones.  High blood pressure or diabetes can also contribute to renal diseases.  Blood or urine tests generally can help diagnose these types of diseases.

    The two major causes of kidney disease are diabetes and high blood pressure. Diabetes 1 and 2 causes a condition called diabetic nephropathy, the number one cause of the disease, and high blood pressure destroys the kidneys gradually over time. Constant use of drugs such as Advil, Motrin, and Tylenol over an extended period of time can result in analgesic nephropathy and damaged kidneys. Hardening of the arteries, obstruction of urine flow (kidney stones, cancers), HIV infection, heroin abuse, and chronic kidney infections can all lead to kidney disease and damage to the kidneys.
