In general, diarrhea can be caused by food poisons and if it cant be treated effectively and timely, it will cause many serious complications, which contain acute kidney failure. But it does not mean that all the diarrhea can cause acute kidney failure, here we refer to very serious diarrhea.

How can diarrhea induce kidney failure?

As we know, kidneys have the function of filtering blood, and all the blood will flow through kidneys. When people suffer from serious diarrhea, the blood volume in body will decline sharply, and the blood volume flow to kidneys will be reduced suddenly, which will cause the hypoperfusion in kidneys. The second reason that may cause kidney failure is food poison, because the poison foods in body will also gastrointestinal tract infections and even cause kidney damage. Besides, diarrhea can also cause dehydration, electrolyte disorders, malnutrition and disturbed internal environment, which will also cause kidney damage and even kidney failure.

However, diarrhea can cause acute kidney failure, but the prognosis is good, because the acute kidney failure can be cured with prompt and effective treatment. For patients who get acute kidney failure, they may experience some obvious symptoms, such as reduced urine output, nausea, vomiting, poor appetite, fatigue, and swelling.
