Postrenal acute renal failure is caused when something interferes with the flow of urine from the kidneys. When urine can't leave the kidneys, it results in a buildup of waste in the blood. This leads to problematic symptoms in the kidneys, blood, bladder, and throughout the body. The effect on the body depends on the cause of the disruption to urine flow. The blockage may be caused by a variety of underlying factors, including bladder or kidney stones, tumors pressing on the bladder or ureters, an enlarged prostate, or a blood clot. These factors may cause other problems in your body, including a swollen bladder that can lead to severe abdominal pain.

What other conditions are confused with celiac disease?
Atlanta Gastroenterology Associates answered
Celiac disease can be confused with other conditions that have similar symptoms and complications. Celiac disease is often confused with chronic fatigue syndrome, anemia, Crohn's disease, diverticulitis, dermatological conditions, irritable bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease, common intestinal tract infections, and anxiety. However, thanks to very pinpointed blood tests and intestinal biopsies, if your doctor suspects celiac disease, there are now very common tests to confirm the diagnosis.
What medications help treat nephrotic syndrome?
Nephrotic syndrome is usually successfully treated with a combination of medicines.Medication choices - Medicines to treat nephrotic syndrome include:
- Corticosteroids, such as prednisone or prednisolone, to reduce swelling.
- Diuretics, such as bumetanide or furosemide, to help maintain fluid balance.
- Cyclophosphamide, cyclosporine or mycophenolate mofetil, when treatment with corticosteroids is not successful.
- Albumin, to restore blood volume.
Most children are successfully treated with corticosteroids, though relapses are common.
Clinical trials are ongoing to test more effective medicines for the treatment of steroid-resistant (relapsing) nephrotic syndrome. If treatment has not successfully controlled your nephrotic syndrome, ask your doctor about information on clinical trials. To take part in a clinical trial, you may need to travel to a large treatment center.What to think about - Most children who have nephrotic syndrome do well with treatment and have a normal life expectancy.
