    DESCRIBE RENAL PTOSIS
    Renal ptosis is caused by rapid weight loss. The kidneys’ fatty encasement holds them in their normal position. If the amount of fatty tissue dwindles (as with extreme emaciation or rapid weight loss), one or both kidneys may drop to a lower position, an event called renal ptosis (to′sis; “a fall”). Renal ptosis may cause a ureter to become kinked, causing urine to back up and exert pressure on kidney tissue. Backup of urine from ureteral obstruction or other causes is called hydronephrosis hi″dro-nĕ-fro′sis; “water in the kidney”). Hydronephrosis can severely damage the kidney, leading to tissue death and renal failure.
