Our Kidneys are bean-shaped organs, located near the middle of our back, below the rib cage. They process our blood and eliminate waste and water from our body by producing urine. They are vital organs and protecting their function should be our priority.
If their function is somehow endangered, the entire body is at risk.
Symptoms of kidney damage:
- Foamy urine
- Dark urine
- Less frequent urination
- Pressure during urination
- Urination in small amounts
- Urination during the night
- Frequent urination
- Urination in large amounts
If your kidneys are damaged, you will found swellings and bloating of your face, limbs and joints.
Shortness of Breath
It is caused because the reduced number of red blood cells, due to the accumulated toxins in the lungs, reduces the amount of oxygen in the body.
Very often people with kidney problems have skin rashes. Their skin is irritated, dry and unhealthy.
Metallic taste in the mouth
The waste buildup in the blood alters the taste of foods and causes a bad breath.
Bad Concentration and Dizziness
Kidney failure leads to poor flow of oxygen to the brain. These people have problems with memory, concentration and dizziness.
If you feel pain in the area of the kidneys, it indicates that you have kidney stones or infections.
Our kidneys produce a hormone known as erythropoietin, which increases the number of red blood cells and carry the needed oxygen. People with kidney damage suffer from fatigue.
