NUR 1172 What are the two most common causes of end stage renal disease?

Answer:

The two most common causes of end stage renal disease are diabetes and hypertension.

People with diabetes have high blood sugar levels, which can damage the body’s ability to regulate blood pressure. High blood pressure damages the kidneys, which can lead to end stage renal disease.

Other causes include glomerulonephritis (inflammation of the glomeruli) and polycystic kidney disease (an inherited disorder).
