For your health, the kidneys are essential because they detoxify and cleanse the body by filtering 10-150 quarts of blood in a day.
Their location is under the rib cage. Their function is to eliminate unnecessary and excessive fluids from your body, regulate the electrolyte levels, produce more red blood cells, regulate your body pressure as well as keep your bones healthy and strong.
In case of their endangerment or if they are impeded, entire health is at risk. That is the reason why it is highly important to learn distinguishing the signs that the body gives you that indicate kidney damage and failure:
Urination Changes – the most common early symptoms of kidney damage:
- trouble urinating;
- urine’s color is pale, often need for urination and in large amounts;
- foamy urine;
- urine’s color is dark, reduced need for urinating or reduced amount or urine;
- often urges for urinating at night; pressure during urinating.
Swellings – If case of a kidneys’ function damaging, the body cannot release excess fluids and this leads bloating of the face, joints and limbs as well as to swellings.
Metallic Taste In The Mouth – because of the waste deposits in the blood, you can have a bad breath or a changed taste in the mouth. If the kidney is severely damaged you can experience big change in the taste of some foods or a low appetite.
Fatigue – if the kidneys are at a good health, they will produce EPO (erythropoietin), that is, a hormone that is responsible for producing red blood cells which supply the oxygen needed for the body. If the red blood cells are lowered, you start to experience fatigue, brain and muscles damage. This is also a common sign of severe anemia.
