According to many doctors and medical experts, the kidneys are the most important organs in the human body and the reason for that is the fact that these bean-shaped organs are responsible for detoxification and cleaning of the organism. Every day, human kidneys filtrate about 180 liters of fluid and during this process they remove the excess waste and fluid from the body. In addition to that, kidneys regulate the blood pressure and balance the electrolytes. Therefore, if the function of kidneys is impaired, the entire organism is at huge risk.

If the kidneys don’t function properly, the body will start sending you warning signs which indicate kidney damage or failure. The most common symptoms are:

  1. FATIGUE

Erythropoietin is a hormone produced by the kidneys, and this hormone increases the number of blood cells in the organism. If the red blood cell count is low, the patient will start experiencing fatigue and problems with muscles and the brain. It is important to mention that these signs also may indicate anemia, so you should visit a doctor and get proper diagnosis.

  1. PAIN

Unbearable pain in the area surrounding the kidneys is one of the most typical symptoms of kidney stones or urinary tract infection.

  1. METALLIC  TASTE IN THE MOUTH

Changes in the taste of food you consume and significantly bad breath appear if there is accumulation of excess waste in the blood. Moreover, poor appetite and metallic taste in the mouth are signs which indicate kidney damage.

  1. SKIN RASHES

Unpleasant skin rashes and annoying itching of the skin are symptoms which are directly linked to accumulation of waste in the blood. Doctors explain that as the waste accumulates in the blood, the skin becomes extremely dry and itchy. It is important to highlight that if the dryness of the skin is result of waste accumulation, which actually occurs as a result of kidney damage, use of creams and lotions will not solve the problem. In such case, the root cause is internal and you need to visit a doctor and start with a medical treatment.

  1. SWELLING

When the kidneys are damaged and their function is compromised, the excess fluids that are supposed to be removed from the organism, actually stay trapped in the body. In such case, the patient has swellings, particularly in the joints, limbs and face.

  1. CHANGES IN THE URINE

Some of the most common warning signs are:

  • Frequent urination and urination in large amounts
  • Urge to urinate, especially during the night
  • Trouble while urinating
  • Pressure during urinating
  • Pale color of the urine
  • Foamy urine

Dark urine, less frequent urinating and urinating in small amounts
