Here are the signs and symptoms of kidney failure that you should be aware of.
SYMPTOMS OF KIDNEY FAILURE – If you are experiencing some of these signs and symptoms, you may have kidney failure.
The moment one of your kidneys malfunctions and loses the ability to filter the toxins in your body, this is kidney failure and you might need dialysis or transplant for you to be alive. The main function of the kidney is to filter blood and remove excess wastes in the body and pass it out in the form of urine through the bladder.
In the worst scenario, once your kidney stops doing what it should, you will be overloaded with toxins and this can be life-threatening if left untreated. If your kidneys are beginning to fail, you may experience the following:
- Muscle cramps
- Nausea and vomiting
- Not feeling hungry
- Swelling in your feet and ankles
- Too much urine (pee) or not enough urine
- Trouble catching your breath
- Trouble sleeping
And if it stops functioning, you will suffer the signs below as per the American Kidney Fund post:
- Abdominal (belly) pain
- Back pain
The best thing to do in order to avoid this serious condition is to do healthy activities such as eating green, following a low-salt-low-fat diet, having regular check-ups, limiting alcohol, dropping smoking habits, and being physically active.
Also, you will be diagnosed with this condition after going through some tests and procedures as recommended by your doctor like blood tests, urine tests, advanced imaging, and others.
You will be at risk of you have high blood pressure, diabetes, a family history of kidney failure, and being older than 60.
