People with diabetes, ischemic heart disease or autoimmune diseases are at high risk of kidney disease. Renal impairment is also commonly seen in patients with elevated blood pressure, kidney stones, or chronic urinary tract infections. Furthermore, urinary tract infections are particularly common in women.
