Rhabdomyolysis Info


Rhabdomyolysis is a medical disorder that harms the kidneys. The disease results from the toxicity of destroyed muscle cells. An pigment that contains Iron, called myoglobin that exists in skeletal muscle enters the bloodstream after the muscle suffers damage. This muscle damage has many causes, being the result of a traumatic injury, viral infections or may result from a toxic reaction to prescription and nonprescription medications.

The kidneys have difficulty filtering the myoglobin out of the bloodstream, because it blocks the structures within the kidney, which can result in serious kidney damage or kidney failure. Additionally, the dead skeletal muscle can cause large shifts in fluid from the bloodstream into the muscle, which reduces the relative fluid volume of the body and can lead to shock and reduced blood flow to the kidneys.

Rhabdomyolysis affects about one out of 10,000 people in the United States, with slighter higher incidence in men. Rhabdomyolysis accounts for an estimated eight to fifteen percent of cases of acute renal failure. About five percent of rhabdomyolysis cases result in death.
