2. Kidney Failure

People who have kidney problems are at serious risk for hypervolemia. Their kidneys stop regulating the amount of sodium and fluid and those who have been hospitalized must be carefully monitored because these abnormal levels lead to bowel problems and poor wound healing, as well as congestive heart failure. One study suggests people who have hypervolemia caused by heart failure or end-stage kidney disease may also develop sleep apnea.
