Question Acne and Kidney Failure?

I'm wondering if adult acne could be caused from kidney failure? I'm 33 and have had back and chest acne over the past couple of years. Just last fall on a routine blood work (went in for vertigo/dizziness), it was discoverered that my GFR is at a stage 2 (all three labs showed this stage since last fall). I've had problems in the past with potassium level, creatinine level, cholesterol and sugars. Right now my MD is watching my labs and I return in 6 months. I'm just wondering if the acne and the kidney function are tied together. I've never had acne on my chest or back until these past couple of years.

Thanks for your input!

Re: Acne and Kidney Failure?

Its very possible, being that your kidneys are suppose to filter out the bad stuff, and yours arent doing what they should be doing. It can also be contributed to high stress espcially since you are going through health problems your body is reacting negitively to the stress.
