Symptoms of Kidney Disease

Symptoms of Kidney Disease

Kidney disease means your kidneys are damaged and can’t filter blood the way they should. The kidneys are two bean-shaped organs. Each kidney is about the size of a fist. Your kidneys filter extra water and wastes out of your blood and make urine.

People with this disease may not feel ill or notice any symptoms. Talk to your doctor right away if you notice any of these potential symptoms:

  • Changes in urination

Healthy kidneys help filter blood to create urine. When the kidneys don’t function well, urination issues may occur. You may also experience urine that’s foamy or bubbly which could be an early sign that protein is getting into your urine.

Reduced kidney function can lead to a buildup of toxins in the blood that causes you to have a lack of energy.

  • Swelling in your hands, legs, or feet

When your kidneys aren’t removing excess fluid and sodium from your body, swelling may occur in your feet or other lower extremities.

  • Shortness of breath

Extra fluid can build up in your lungs when your kidneys aren’t removing enough fluid.

  • Pain in the small of your back

You may experience localized pain near your kidneys that doesn’t change or that becomes worse when you move or stretch. The kidneys are located on either side of your spine in your lower back, and kidney problems can cause pain in this area.

  • Decreased appetite

A buildup of toxins due to impaired kidney function may cause you to lose your appetite.

  • Abnormal levels of calcium, phosphorus, or vitamin D

Impaired kidney function can cause electrolyte imbalances, such as high phosphorus or low calcium levels that may lead to muscle cramping.

  • Abnormal urine test

High amounts of protein in your urine can be a sign of kidney disease. Healthy kidneys filter out waste and fluid, letting protein return to the blood. When the kidneys don’t function correctly, protein leaks into your urine.

  • High blood pressure

Excess fluid and sodium build up as a result of kidney disease can cause you to have higher blood pressure.

Using HCG Diet to Lose Weight and Reduce Your Risk of Kidney Disease

The HCG Diet is a pro-hormone that helps the body produce more hormones. Since a hormone deficiency or imbalance is usually part of the reason for weight gain, this hormone can help reverse the effects.

According to patients, the HCG hormone lessens feelings of hunger. Because this is also a low-calorie diet this allows them to eat very little comfortably. It is believed that the presence of the HCG hormone in the bloodstream takes away your appetite.

Preventing kidney disease and its complications is possible by managing risk factors and treating the disease to slow its progression and reduce the risk of complications. Use HCG Diet now!
