If renal function is disabled then it affects the health of the whole body. If the kidneys are not working properly, then they will not filter toxins from the blood, which will have a serious impact on the whole health.
It is very important to know what the symptoms of kidney damage are, in order to know when the kidneys are at risk and preserve your health.
The most common symptoms of kidney damage are the following:
The kidneys are responsible for the production of erythropoietin, a hormone that helps in the formation of red blood cells that carry oxygen.
However, if the number of red blood cells decreases, this can lead to anemia, which will lead to fatigue and lack of oxygen in cells.
If the kidneys do not produce urine as they should, then there are disorders of urination, which means that the individual may experience frequent night urination, more urine than normal, foamy urine, pale urine.
On the other hand, you can also experience the opposite of the above symptoms such as less urine than usual, dark urine, bloody urine, less wet than usual, difficulty urinating and a feeling of pressure.
Swelling in certain parts of the body
As the kidneys fail to remove toxins from the body, they accumulate in certain parts of the body such as the face, arms, legs, ankles and feet.
Dryness, rash, itchy skin
If the renal function is disturbed, toxins accumulate in the blood, resulting in skin dryness, persistent itching and rash. NEVER ignore these symptoms and signs of the skin, nor treat them with creams and ointments because these symptoms on the skin will last until solved properly.
Pain in the lower back
People often experience lower back pain in the case of renal impairment, initially only on one side, and then on both sides. In addition, if you usually sleep on one side, you will feel more pain on that side.
The most common cause of kidney damage cadmium – heavy metals can pollute the environment through oil and burned coils or incineration of municipal waste.
It is also found in phosphate fertilizers that are used for growing plants that we consume. For all these reasons, smoking is even more harmful, because smokers inhale this dangerous metal directly into the lungs.
How to improve kidney function
In order to solve the problems with the kidneys and restore proper functionality, you need to make some changes in your lifestyle and start eating healthy food and avoid products rich in cadmium.
Also you need to drink plenty of fluids, natural juices, such as unsweetened cranberry juice. Try to consume food and natural tea from corn silk, cranberries, bearberry tea, and burdock root tea.
