B
Gradual, irreversible loss of kidney function is called chronic renal failure. Acute renal failure is characterized by an abrupt loss of renal failure and is often reversible. Nephrotic syndrome is caused by damage to the glomerulus and is also often reversible. Patients with chronic renal fail-ure often become dependent on dialysis, but loss of kidney function may progress gradually for several years before dialysis becomes necessary.
