  • Muscle Disease

    the breakdown of damaged muscle tissues resulting in the release of muscle fiber contents into the bloodstream (Patel M.D.). This disease occurs when there is damage to the skeletal muscle. The breakdown products of damaged muscle cells‚ such as myoglobin‚ are harmful to the kidneys and frequently result in kidney damage or even kidney failure. The severity of the symptoms depends on the degree of muscle damage and the degree of the kidney damage‚ if any. The primary muscle damage can be caused by
