First Signs of Kidney Disease

First Signs of Kidney Disease

The human body has two kidneys which are mainly responsible for filtering the blood free of nitrogenous waste products like acid, creatinine, and urea. 

Lots of people live with various types of kidney disease and most of them don’t have the faintest idea about it. For this reason, kidney disease is often known as a silent killer as most people do not feel any difference until the disease is advanced. 

Signs of Kidney Disease

There are several warning signs of a kidney disorder, however, most of the time these are ignored or confused with alternative pathologies. Therefore, one has to be very watchful and should get the confirmatory tests done at the earliest appearance of any sign of a kidney disorder.   

Swelling of your legs

As kidney disease progresses, possible symptoms may include:

  • A reduced amount of urine
  • Persistent nausea
  • Confusion
  • Excessive drowsiness or fatigue
  • Pain or pressure in your chest
  • Seizures
  • Swelling of your legs, ankles, and feet from retention of fluids caused by the failure of the kidneys to eliminate water waste
  • Unexplained shortness of breath

What Causes Kidney Disease?

In most cases, kidney failure is caused by other health problems that have done permanent damage to your kidneys little by little, over time.

When your kidneys are damaged, they may not work as well as they should. If the damage to your kidneys continues to get worse and your kidneys are less and less able to do their job, you have chronic kidney disease. Kidney failure is the last stage of chronic kidney disease. This is why kidney failure is also called end-stage renal disease or ESRD.

How Does Weight Affect The Risk For Kidney Disease?

Being obese increases the risk of high blood pressure and diabetes. In turn, high blood pressure and diabetes are the two main causes of kidney disease. Obesity can directly affect your kidneys, too. The extra weight forces the kidneys to work harder and filter wastes above the normal level. 

Over time, this extra work increases the risk for kidney disease. Just remember, when there’s more of you, your kidneys have to work harder to keep up.

How to Lighten Up To Protect Your Kidneys and Overall Health? 

Here are ways to reduce your risk for kidney disease if you are obese:

  • Make lifestyle changes, such as getting more exercise and watching portion sizes.
  • Control blood pressure if you have high blood pressure
  • Control blood sugar if you have diabetes
  • Get your kidneys checked (blood and urine test) 

HCG Diet as Kidney Disease Aid

HCG stands for human chorionic gonadotropin. When using HCG Injections, it is believed to have various health benefits such as:

•        It resets your hypothalamus and reduces your calorie intake without getting any hunger pain.

•        It will make your body undergo changes by losing fat weight and not muscle. It targets the abnormal fat and will help your skin retract as you lose the fat.

•        Losing weight through the HCG diet means reducing your risk from obesity-related diseases including kidney disease.

•        The HCG diet program changes your eating pattern, lifestyle, and unhealthy food choices. It promotes your overall health.

•        After you stop taking the HCG you will find that your appetite has changed also. The new eating behavior will become part of your new lifestyle.

•        To maintain the weight results you have achieved, you will want to implement healthy living and a regular exercise routine to keep those pounds off.

•        HCG Diet sheds the extra pounds, besides the overall health of a person, it helps normalize cholesterol levels, the thyroid gland, and balance hormones while rebuilding the adrenal glands.
