kidneys Problems :
Every day, our brain processes tons of information and our body performs thousands of actions. Because of the frenzied pace of life, it is very easy not to notice the signals for help that the body sends. And ignoring health problems can lead to serious consequences.
Delta-Feed has compiled a list of signs that indicate that your kidneys are not working properly.
10-Sleep problems :
When your kidneys do not function properly, toxins are not eliminated from the body through urine and remain in the blood. Increased levels of toxins cause insomnia. Therefore, if you do not sleep well, there is a possibility of kidney problems.
Be careful: People with chronic kidney disease are more likely to suffer from sleep apnea. This is a disorder that causes the cessation of pulmonary ventilation during sleep for more than 10 seconds. After each pause, normal breathing returns with a loud snort. Continuous strong snoring signals that you should consult a doctor.
9-Headaches, fatigue, and general weakness :
Healthy and properly functioning kidneys synthesize vitamin D in our body to strengthen bones and produce the hormone erythropoietin. It plays an important role in the formation of red blood cells. When the kidneys function poorly, they produce less erythropoietin. A decrease in the level of red blood cells, which carry oxygen in the blood, leads to fatigue of the muscles and brain.
Be careful: For people with kidney problems, anemia is typical. It can develop when kidney function decreases by 20-50 %. If you get enough rest and sleep but still feel tired and weak, you should immediately consult a doctor.
8-Dry and itchy skin :
Healthy kidneys remove harmful substances and excess fluid from the blood, helping to produce red blood cells and maintaining the necessary amount of minerals in the body. Itching and dry skin indicate the inability of the kidneys to maintain the correct balance of minerals and nutrients, and this can lead to bone and kidney diseases.
Be careful: If you have dry and itchy skin, try using moisturizers. Remember: Before taking any medications for itching, you should consult your doctor. Some medications contain ingredients that can cause even more damage to the kidneys.
