Your kidneys are very important as they help to filter out harmful toxins from your blood.
Knowing when your kidneys are not functioning properly has now become very crucial in avoiding serious health implications.
Here are the most common symptoms of kidney damage:
- General Body Weakness And Fatigue
Your kidneys help to produce erythropoietin which is a hormone that promotes the creation of oxygen conveying red blood cells. Where there is a reduction of the red blood cells, you may suffer from anaemia leading to general body weakness and fatigue due to a shortage of oxygen in your body cells.
- Altered Urinary Patterns
If your kidneys are not functioning properly they may produce more or less urine than normal. This will cause you to either urinate more than usually or less often than normal. Your urine can also be bubbly, foamy, pale in colour, dark and even bloody.
- Inflammation Of Your Body
When your kidneys don’t function properly and you do not get rid of excess fluid through urination, then this fluids could accumulate in parts of your body such as your feet, hands, face, ankles and legs.
- When You Experience Skin Rashes, Dryness And Even Itching
Waste gets built up in the blood when your kidneys don’t function properly; this leads to skin dryness, rashes and itching. Using an ointment or cream will not resolve this problem and you will need to see you doctor urgently.
- Having Persistent Lower Back Pain
When there is something wrong with your kidneys you will experience lower back pain which may start on one side and then progress to the other side causing serious discomfort.
Causes Of Kidney Damage
Kidney damage is usually caused by a heavy metal known as cadmium which is a pollutant and may be released into the environment through the burning of oil, municipal waste and coil.
