Overview of Chronic Renal Failure and Medical Marijuana

Chronic renal failures possesses symptoms of worsening kidney function and are usually non-specific. These can include feelings of feeling generally unwell and experiencing a reduced appetite. Chronic renal failure is identified by a blood test for creatinine.
