A kidney disorder that causes the body to excrete too much protein in the urine.

An underlying health condition usually plays a role, which requires a medical diagnosis. Symptoms include swelling around the eyes and in the feet and ankles, foamy urine and weight gain due to excess fluid retention.

Acute kidney disease occurs when the kidneys suddenly stop functioning for a short period of time. This can range from one day to a few weeks. The lack of blood filtration leads to the accumulation of toxins and electrolytes in the body which can be severe.
