Complications could include:
Kidney stones are solid masses of crystalized calcium or other substances that originate in the kidneys but can pass through the urinary tract. The greatest risk factor is making less than one liter of urine per day.
A kidney, ureter, and bladder (KUB) study is an X-ray procedure that assesses the organs of the urinary system and gastrointestinal system.
A blood urea nitrogen (BUN) test checks kidney function by measuring how much urea nitrogen is in your blood.
Your body becomes overloaded with toxins if your kidneys can't do their regular job. This can lead to kidney failure and even be life-threatening.
