Frequently asked questions

Can renovascular disease lead to kidney failure?

Yes. Signs of oncoming kidney failure are:

  • Puffy eyes, hands and feet
  • Loss of appetite
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • A bad taste in the mouth
  • Weight loss
  • General and ongoing itchy skin
  • Muscle twitching or cramping
  • A yellowish-brown tint to skin color

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.

Can renovascular disease be prevented?

No. But, it can be slowed by controlling conditions that can cause it, like hypertension. Eating a healthy diet is always helpful.
