As kidney failure gets worse, and toxins build-up in the body, seizures and mental confusion can occur.
What are some complications of renovascular disease?
Some problems that go along with renovascular disease can be: heart disease, stroke, heart attack, congestive heart failure, blood vessel damage, kidney failure/damage and loss of vision.
