Disorder - Renal InsufficiencyOrgan Systems Involved
Renal insufficiency is an onset of kidney filtration failure due to a number of causes. As a result the body accumulates toxins and is less able to regulate the balance of fluids and salts.
Clinical signs of renal insufficiency are depression, dehydration, mouth ulcers, colour changes and inflammation of the tongue, increased thirst, increased production of urine, fever and panting. Vomiting, diarrhoea, foul smelling breath, seizures and involuntary muscle movement are also indications of possible renal insufficiency. If the disorder is left untreated or undetected, it can lead further complications.
