What happens when your kidneys start shutting down? If you are suspicious of yourself with kidney disease, go on reading to learn more information.
In fact, in the early stage of kidney disease, you do not have any symptoms, or the symptoms are so slightly that you hardly realize them. With the progression of disease, kidney damage will become more and more severe, and then more and more symptoms and complications will appear. Here I list some of them.
It is the initial symptom of kidney disease. It may appear on eyelid first, but it usually disappears in the afternoon. That is why many people do not attach importance to it. With the worsening of disease, it can also appear on your legs, feet, hands, ankles, or even your whole body.
It is also the common symptom of kidney disease, which can make your urine foamy. Too much protein going out of your body can speed up glomerulosclerosis and impair your kidney function further. Therefore, it should be treated further.
-High blood pressure
Uncontrolled high blood pressure for years can cause kidney damage, and kidney damage can elevate your blood pressure. This is a vicious circle.
The damaged kidneys can not secrete enough EPO to help make red blood cells so that it is likely for you to suffer from anemia. Common symptoms of anemia include cold limbs, shortness of breath, headache, pale skin, forgetful, etc.
In addition, when kidneys shut down, a lot of waste products build up in the blood, polluting the blood. Wherever the polluted blood flows to, wherever it will affect. Therefore, all systems of body will be damaged, such as blood system, respiratory tract infection system, cardiovascular system, gastrointestinal system, bones, neuromuscular system and so on.
