Dry kidney?

Can anyone explain the term "dry kidney".  It was mentioned by a nurse during lab work and she would not elaborate.  Said the doctor would say more, but there's a several week delay between the lab visit and the doc's appt.  I would appreciate any information.  Thanks.

Hi, dry kidney is basically kidney failure. It's when your kidneys no longer have control over the excretion of wastes nor the volume of your blood (this is the extreme end of the scale, though you can have smaller scale kidney failure/dry kidney). This is a potentially very dangerous condition and, if necessary, patients may need to go on renal dialysis for it.
