Chronic Renal Failure

Chronic Renal Failure is the loss of the Kidney Function which can be diagnosed with GFR. The causes of growth failure and poor intellectual development in children with CRF are multifactorial but the principal factors involved are poor nutrition, renal osteodystrophy, salt wasting, metabolic acidosis, anaemia and hormonal changes. Obligatory urinary salt loss is a common feature of chronic renal failure in infants with structural abnormalities of the urinary tract – notably renal dysplasia. Chronic renal failure in children is rare. Its management is complex and demands the expertise and resources of a skilled multi-professional team
