There are numerous physical symptoms of kidney disease, sometimes resulting from different kidney diseases.
According to WebMd - It is also possible that the initial symptoms of kidney disease in humans may not be recognised.
If you have had kidney disease or have someone who has had kidney disease, you will understand that kidney disease is also a silent killer.
Few people are able to recognise the symptoms of kidney disease and are ignorant and unable to treat the disease at an early stage.
In most cases, there are no signs at all until the condition becomes serious. Understanding and knowing the signs is therefore a major issue.
Here are eight symptoms of kidney disease to look out for:
1. changes in urinary function
The first symptom of kidney disease is an increase in the quantity and frequency of urination.
If the frequency of urination increases or decreases, kidney disease may be present. Occasionally, you may notice a dark colour in your urine.
If you notice any changes in urinary function, you should seek medical advice.
2. difficulty or pain when urinating
There may also be problems, pain or distress when emptying the bladder.
This may be due to a urinary tract infection. However, it should be treated as soon as possible as it can put pressure on the kidneys. Blood in the urine:
Blood in the urine can be associated with bladder cancer and is a clear indicator of kidney disease.
4. bubbling urine:
However, the bladder and kidneys are linked. The bladder is affected first, then the kidneys. Swelling and oedema:
The kidneys absorb all the waste products and drinks in the body. When this is no longer possible, waste products and excess fluid accumulate in the body. In this case, the individual's body swells.
6. extreme fatigue:
When the kidneys fail, the concentration of the hormone erythropoietin decreases significantly, causing fatigue and malaise in the body.
7. dizziness and difficulty concentrating.
When kidney problems occur, the brain does not get enough oxygen, making it difficult to concentrate.
This happens because the brain needs oxygen.
8. shortness of breath
Strong kidney disease can cause breathing problems in the lungs.
It is easy to understand that these symptoms may not be kidney disease, but they can sometimes be another disease or disorder, and if they are present, the patient should undergo tests or see a doctor.
