Medicine Quiz: Renal Failure (ESRD) - Quiz

Do you know about renal failure? Take this medicine quiz on renal failure to check your knowledge about the same. Your kidneys are some of the most vital organs in the human body and are responsible for filtering your blood to remove wastes and extra water from it to produce urine. Renal failure occurs when the kidneys cease to operate at the desired rate or at all. Can you tell us about the causes, symptoms, and treatment for renal failure? Take this quiz to find out! All the best!
