What is postrenal acute renal failure?

Postrenal 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 postrenal kidney failure is caused by anything that interferes with the excretion of urine out of the kidneys. Postrenal acute renal failure is a serious condition that can progress very quickly, but with proper treatment, it can be reversed.
