Kidney failure, (aka end-stage renal disease) occurs when the kidneys cease to function. Prime culprits of kidney failure are due to acute problems such as a heart attack, or an underlying chronic condition such as diabetes and hypertension. Symptoms appear in relation to the concentration of waste and fluid build-ups. Death occurs usually within 2 to 3 days. Survival can be sustained with ongoing dialysis treatment or a kidney transplant.
