How to Prevent Acute Renal Failure


To help reduce your chance of acute kidney failure, take the following steps:

 

  • Get a physical every year that includes a urine test to monitor your kidney's health.
  • Drink water and other fluids to stay hydrated.
  • Don't take drugs or other substances that can damage your kidneys. Check with your doctor to find out about the potential side effects of any medications you are taking.
  • People at risk for chronic kidney disease (eg, those with a pre-existing kidney disease or kidney stone) should get more frequent check-ups at their doctor's office.
