What is intrinsic acute renal failure?

Intrinsic acute renal failure is a condition when your kidneys suddenly lose the ability to filter out waste from your blood. This leads to the accumulation of waste in the blood, which can cause symptoms like nausea, itchiness, and fatigue. Kidney failure can be caused by a number of things, but intrinsic kidney failure is caused by anything that damages the kidneys themselves, ranging from chronic diseases to infections to toxic injury. Intrinsic acute renal failure is a serious condition that can progress very quickly, but with proper treatment, it can be reversed.
