What happens when your kidneys are not working properly?
Impaired kidney function is when your kidneys are not working as well as they should. Normally, kidneys remove fluid, chemicals, and waste from your blood. These wastes are removed from your body in the urine made by your kidneys. If impaired kidney function is not treated or gets worse, it may lead to long-term kidney disease or kidney failure.
What should I do if I have impaired kidney function?
NSAIDs, stomach medicine, or laxatives may harm your kidneys. Limit alcohol. Ask how much alcohol is safe for you to drink. A drink of alcohol is 12 ounces of beer, 5 ounces of wine, or 1½ ounces of liquor. Do not smoke. Nicotine can damage blood vessels and make it more difficult to manage your impaired kidney function.
