Can multiple myeloma cause kidney failure?

Yes, kidney failure is a possible complication of multiple myeloma. The cancerous cells produce abnormal proteins which can deposit in the kidneys, impairing their function. Additionally, elevated calcium levels due to bone breakdown can further stress the kidneys. Early detection and intervention, including hydration and specific treatments, can help prevent or manage kidney complications.
