A common issue for older adults is the onset of kidney disease which is gradual loss of kidney function. If not managed properly, advanced stages of the disease can lead to dangerous levels of fluid and waste that can build up in the body over time. According to the Mayo Clinic, other factors that may increase your risk of chronic kidney disease include:
High blood pressure
Heart and blood vessel (cardiovascular) disease
Being African American, Native American, or Asian American
Family history of kidney disease
Abnormal kidney structure
