Your kidneys are responsible for producing urine and eliminating waste through it. Changes in the frequency, odor, color and
appearance of urine should not be ignored. Common types of changes include:
• Increased need to urinate, especially during the night. Anywhere between 4 to 10 times a day is considered
to be normal. • Seeing blood in urine. Healthy kidneys filter waste from the blood
to produce urine, but if the filter is damaged the blood cells might start to “leek”
out into the urine. • Having foamy urine. Bubbles in the urine especially the ones that
require you to flush several times until they go away indicate that unwanted protein is
in the urine. #2. High Blood Pressure
Your circulatory system and kidneys depend on each other. The kidneys have small nephrons that filter
waste and extra fluids from the blood. If the blood vessels get damaged, the nephrons
that filter your blood don’t receive enough oxygen and nutrients. That’s why high blood pressure is the second
leading cause of kidney failure. #3. Puffy Eyes
An early sign that your kidney’s filter system is damaged is the onset of protein
in the urine, which can result in puffiness around the eye area. The puffiness around your eye can be explained
by the fact that your kidneys are leaking a large amount of protein into the urine rather
than keeping it and distributing it throughout the body. #4. Having Back Pain
Kidney failure can result in back pain that is usually deep and located right below the
rib cage. It can be felt in the front of the groin or
hip area. Back and leg pain can be caused by kidney
cysts, which are large fluid-filled sacs formed on the kidenys, and are the result of polycystic
kidney disease. #5. Having Dry and Itchy Skin
Healthy kidneys do tremendous work by removing waste and extra fluid from the blood, helping
produce red blood cells, and maintaining the proper amount of minerals in your body. Itchy and dry skin signal the failure of kidneys
to maintain the right balance of minerals and nutrients which can result in bone and
kidney disease.
