Kidneys are very important organs for the proper functioning of your entire body. They are vital for blood filtering, preventing waste and excess fluids build up, regulating your blood pressure and electrolyte levels, stimulating red blood cells production and maintaining bone health.
Yet, they often suffer from damage, which causes huge complications. Therefore, it is extremely important that you know the signs of kidney damage in order to prevent further health issues and treat the problem on time.
If the kidneys are in trouble and can no longer function, as usual, the health is in big trouble. Read carefully to recognize and prevent and problems linked to kidney damage or failure:
The most obvious and early signs are these:
Pressure during the process
Dark urine, less frequent urinating and with small amounts
Pale color of urine, frequent and in large amounts
Many urge to urinate during the night
If the kidneys are healthy they produce EPO (erythropoietin), a hormone that makes more red blood cells which bring oxygen to where is needed. If the red blood cells number is lowered, fatigue will occur and it will have an impact on the brain and muscles too. This is also a sign of severe anemia.
Damaged kidneys often lead to swellings in the body, especially in the leg, ankle, hand, face, and feet areas. The body cannot remove the accumulated waste and fluids and they cause swellings.
The waste buildup in your body can be linked to kidney failure and this can cause rashes and itchy skin. If the kidneys can’t filter the blood and remove the waste build up your skin can look unhealthy, dry and irritated. Lotions and creams and cosmetics can ease up the situation a little bit, but don’t solve the problem which comes from the inside – IF the rash is directly caused by the kidney problems of course.
