Kidneys. Two important organs just below the rib cage on either side of your spine. Their main job is to get rid of body waste and regulate amount of fluids, salts and minerals in the blood. Any injury or damages to the kidneys would mean not being able to balance harmony in blood because it can not efficiently remove waste and toxins from the body.
In the United States, there are estimated 31 million adults don’t even know they have chronic kidney disease (CKD). Some of the earliest symptoms of kidney problems could be dismissed as symptoms of number of other health issues. So, how do you know if you have kidney disease? Let’s have a look at several of early kidney disease symptoms.
Did I just eat a piece of metal?
Metallic taste in your mouth is one of the earliest symptoms of kidney disease, caused by waste build-up in your blood. Don’t blame your wife for bad cooking.
Gotta go again?
Have you been noticing that you need to go to the bathroom more often than before? Is there blood in your urine? Unusually large amount or very little dark colored urine?
If your kidneys can not remove waste and toxins from your blood stream, it can cause itching and/or rashes.
Get tired easily?
You may be feeling tired all the time because kidney is not able to produce enough hormones that trigger production of red blood cells.
Are you out of breath?
Shortness of breath. Fluid build up in your lungs because kidney can not get rid of fluid as it should.
Notice swelling in some parts of your body?
Diminished function of kidney can not regulate fluid in your body causing swelling.
Other related symptoms include but not limited to feeling cold, get dizzy often, nausea or vomiting, have pain in lower back or side.
If you feel or notice any of these symptoms, make an appointment to see your doctor to have some test done. It’s the only way to know for sure and you want to catch it early to restore your kidney function. If you experience any of the symptoms above and are concerned, make an appointment to see your doctor.
If detected early, kidney disease can be reversed naturally. To find out more about natural kidney disease treatment, read the review of the Kidney Disease Solution. This book was published by an Australian Naturopathic doctor who specializes in treating kidney disease.
