know that the symptoms of kidney disease are not silent, but are redundant enough to not
care. Unfortunately in some cases, the symptoms
may not even become present until the condition is critical. So this makes knowing and recognizing the

that you need to be aware of. 1 – Changing of Your Urinary Function: The
first telltale sign of kidney disease is the change in the amount and frequency you urinate. You could see a dramatic increase or decrease
in the amount of urine you pass. At times you might also notice your urine
change into a darker color. You might also feel this extreme urge to urinate
but are unable to once you reach the washroom. The bottom line is that if you sense a change
in your urinary function, it’s best to start paying attention and making notes of your
daily visits to the washroom. 2 – Difficulty or Pain While Urinating: You
might have difficulty, or feel pressure or pain while trying to empty your bladder. This could mean that you have developed a
urinary tract infection. This is easily curable, but it is best to
catch it early because it has the potential to spread to your kidneys, you might develop
a fever and pain in your neck. 3 – Blood in the Urine: This is one of the
symptoms that cannot be missed and is a direct cause for concern. So if you see this, do not ignore it. Blood in the urine is a direct symptom of
kidney disease. You need to visit your doctor immediately
if this symptom has surfaced. Because blood in the urine could also be associated
to several bladder cancers. 4 – Foamy Urine: I know you’re probably
thinking that a lot of these symptoms have to do just with the bladder, but because the
bladder and kidneys are so connected, the bladder is the first to be affected if the
kidneys are failing. 5 – Swelling or Oedema: All the excess waste
and fluids in your body is removed by your kidneys. When they can no longer do that, this extra
waste and fluid builds up in your body. When this occurs, the person will experience
swelling of the feet, ankles, puffiness in the face and tightness in their hands. 6 – Extreme Fatigue: When your kidneys are
functioning properly, they’re producing a hormone called erythropoietin, which helps
red blood cells carry oxygen. When your kidneys malfunction, the levels
of this hormone drop drastically. This sudden drop in red blood cells causes
your body to become weak and fatigue. 7 – Dizziness and Inability to Concentrate:
When your kidneys are causing you to become fatigue, this lack of oxygen also affects
the brain. This may cause you to become dizzy and find
it difficult to concentrate as well. The reason is that when the brain is lacking
oxygen, it functions slower. 8 – Feeling Constantly Cold: When your body
becomes anaemic, which can be caused by kidney disease, it can also cause you to become cold
in areas that are warm. Pyelonephritis, which is a kidney infection,
can also cause a fever and chills. 9 – Skin Rashes and Itching: This symptom
can often be commonly confused with other conditions such as allergies, but the rashes
could be a symptom of kidney disease and failure. What causes this is renal failure, which also
causes waste to build up in your blood. This is what causes severe itching and skin
rashes. 10 – Ammonia Breath and Metallic: Kidney failure
increases the level of urea in the blood. When this occurs, the urea is broken down
into ammonia in the saliva which causes urine-like bad breath called ammonia breathe. 11 – Nausea and Vomiting: If your kidneys
are failing, you will experience constant nausea and vomiting. It won’t be a one-time-thing. You will experience this more often than not. The reason for this is the build-up of waste
products needs to leave the body, which is why it results in vomit. 12 – Shortness of Breath: If the kidney disease
has become severe enough, it can cause a build-up of fluid in the lungs which can leave you
with a feeling of breathlessness. In relation, if your body suffers from anemia,
another kidney disease, it will starve your body of oxygen. It’s important to remember that if you have
any of these symptoms, it does not necessarily mean that you have kidney damage. Many of these symptoms are part of other diseases
and infections, but they are worth looking into or consulting your doctor about if you
experience them. They can save your kidneys and potentially
your life. Enjoyed this video? Hit the like button and subscribe to our channel
