7-Bad breath and metallic taste :
When harmful substances accumulate in the blood, the taste of food changes, and there is metallic in the mouth. Bad breath is another sign of a high concentration of toxins in the blood. Also, there is a possibility of losing your appetite, which can lead to unhealthy weight loss.
Be careful: There are various reasons why food can have a metallic taste (from allergies to poor oral health). As a rule, it should disappear if these factors are eliminated. If the taste remains, you need to consult a doctor.
6-Inconsistent breath :
The link between kidney disease and shortness of breath, especially after little effort, is due to two factors. First, excess fluid in the body gets into the lungs when the kidneys are not working properly. Secondly, anemia deprives the body of oxygen, which leads to shortness of breath.
Be careful: There are various causes of shortness of breath, from kidney failure to asthma, lung cancer, or heart disease. If you notice that you are constantly experiencing shortness of breath after you put a little effort in, you should immediately consult a doctor.
5-Swelling of the ankles and hands :
Kidneys that do not function properly do not remove excess fluid from the body. This causes sodium retention, which causes swelling of the ankles, legs, and arms. Swelling of the lower body can also signal heart disease, liver disease, or problems with the veins.
Be careful: Taking the necessary medications, reducing salt intake, and removing excess fluid from the body can stop edema. If this does not help, you should consult your doctor.
4-Back pain :
Kidney problems can lead to back pain, which is felt right under the rib cage. It can be felt in the front of the groin or the thighs. Back and leg pain can occur due to the formation of cysts in the kidneys — large sacs filled with fluid.
Tip: Back Pain caused by kidney failure is accompanied by a feeling of nausea, vomiting, high body temperature, and frequent urination. Back pain, which does not correlate with the kidneys, feels different: it is localized and occurs suddenly, without an increase in temperature. If the back continues to hurt, and the pills do not help, you should consult a doctor.
