Risks Factors for Kidney Disease

There are several risk factors for kidney disease.

A family history of kidney disease, previous injury to a kidney and diabetes may obvious risk factors, but here are some others:

  • High blood pressure (hypertension) - increased pressure inside your arteries can damage your kidneys

  • Being aged over 60

  • Having established heart problems (prior heart attack or heart failure)
