Lamar Odom’s kidneys failed while being hospitalized after his unexplained collapse and the doctors are hopeful with dialysis.

Lamar Odom’s sudden collapse has been a shock to family, friends and fans alike. No one could understand why the former NFL star had collapsed. Spending his weekend at a brothel in Nevada, he was found passed out in his room on Tuesday by two of the workers.

He was rushed to the hospital in Nevada and then on to Las Vegas where he is undergoing treatment and under observation. Khloe Kardashian has flown to Las Vegas to be at his side as have other family members and friends.

According to initial reports, Odom went into respiratory arrest and they had to intubate him. This was also a danger to his heart and other systems. The most recent diagnosis came out to be kidney failure.

The doctors found out that his kidneys were failing fast. They treated the condition with dialysis which has been successful in sustaining him for the time being. The doctors are trying to conclude what the cause of the kidney failure might be. It is usually caused by stress, diabetes or drug use.

"They were worried about his kidneys," a source at the hospital told The Daily News on Wednesday. "They were failing today, but they gave him dialysis. His doctors think he could be OK," the source said with caution. "He is still critical, in ICU. So, anything can happen."

While doctors are keenly basing their assumptions on drug use, the witnesses have reported that Lamar had taken no drugs whatsoever over the span of the weekend. The owner of the brothel, Darren Hof said that people accompanying Odom never saw him use drugs.

The police have not found any narcotics in his room yet either. The only medication that Lamar was using was a herbal supplement to Viagra. The witnesses’ say that he took those pills in a large amount and that did cause a little trouble.

“It’s an herbal supplement that gives you energy,” brothel owner Dennis Hof told The Washington Post. “They say it’s for erectile dysfunction. Basically, it gives you more energy. It’s an over-the-counter speedy kind of product … the pill form of an energy drink.”

“It’s not a pharmaceutical, not a prescription drug,” Hof added.

The FDA will have to be looking in the company that produces these supplement for obvious health related issues. It is however a known fact that Odom took way too many pills.

That combined with any kind of stress might have led his health to deteriorate. Odom reportedly received a phone call the day previous to his collapse that disturbed him and might have triggered his collapse.

The doctors are saying that his condition will have to be assessed to determine the cause of kidney failure. They will recommend a course of treatment after that.
