However, at least two measurements of creatinine level within 48 hours are required.
In addition to signaling kidney disease, blood in the urine can be indicative of tumors, kidney stones or an infection.
There is no precise biochemical definition for acute renal failure.
Preventing and treating illnesses that can lead to acute kidney failure is the best method for avoiding the disease.
