What should I know to care for someone with intrinsic acute renal failure?

Caring for someone with intrinsic acute renal failure involves helping them follow medical advice. Since intrinsic acute renal failure is generally caused by another condition such as chronic kidney disease or infection, it's important to support your loved one as they receive treatment for that condition, too. Once the underlying problem has been treated, help them monitor their diet and fluid intake according to doctors' recommendations. The treatment process may take a while, so make sure you're supporting your loved one through any necessary treatment.
