Kidney failure is one serious disorder, because it can induce many complications. Some of these complications may even be life-threatening, so patients will ask “can kidney failure cause death”.

2. Metabolic acidosis: When kidneys are unable to filter blood normally, more and more uric acid will build up in the blood, resulting in metabolic acidosis. This disorder can cause nausea, vomiting, poor appetite, deep breathing, and other problem, and it is also one cause of death if too serious.

3. Pulmonary edema or pleural effusion: With the severe decline of urine output, the body will be loaded by too much fluid that can cause pleural effusion and pulmonary edema. This disorder is more likely to be accompanied by heart failure that can threaten patients’ life.

4. Hyperkalemia: If blood potassium level is higher than 6.5mmol/L, it indicates hyperkalemia. In this case, patients are more likely to suffer from severe complications like irregular heartbeat.

Additionally, some other problems such as bleeding tendency especially brain bleeding, severe anemia, and so on, may also increase the incidence of death.
