Genito-Urinary System Disorders  

This category includes medical disorders, other than cancer, that generally result from kidney dysfunction. The most common of these are chronic renal disease, kidney transplantation and nephrotic syndrome.  Some specific disorders that fit within this category of disorders include nephrolisthiasis, obstructive uropathy, heavy metals disease, hepatitis and cirrhosis, among others.

These disorders can produce symptoms such as edema ( i.e., an excess of body fluids), excruciating pain, neuropathy and persistent weight loss. They are typically well managed by medication, but that is not always the case.  Some genito-urinary disorders are very difficult to treat effectively.  All of them tend to progress in severity over time. 

The degree of an individual's disability generally depends on the severity of the underlying disease process and the symptoms it produces.  Most of the symptoms of genito-urinary disorders can result in limitations that affect an individual's ability to work.  However, some are linked to ongoing drug and alcohol abuse, and others are the result of failure to follow prescribed treatment.  These factors can result in the denial of disability benefits no matter how severe an individual's symptoms are.  Careful analysis is required to determine the cause of genito-urinary disorders and their symptoms, and whether the limitations they impose warrant an award of disability benefits.
