Last time we wrote an article on the signs and symptoms that might be arising due to the kidney problems and now we are back with some more of them. Kidneys are the organs that are responsible for excreting the harmful waste from the body in the form of urine. If these organs malfunction it can cause the whole body’s health to deteriorate by a huge margin and in extreme cases can even lead to death.
For our readers, we present more sign and symptoms that can be due to kidney problems. F you experience any of them, it is best to get yourself checked by a doctor as soon as possible.
Swelling in hands, ankles and feet
When the kidneys are affected they do not perform essential functions like removing the extra fluid stored inside the body. This causes sodium retention in the body which in turn can cause the swelling of hands, feet, and ankles. Swelling in the lower body parts can also be a symptom for the liver and cardiovascular disorders or it can even be due to leg vein disorder.
Often a person takes certain medications that stop the removal of excess salt and fluid from the body. Simply stopping such medication can resolve the problem.
When a person suffers from kidney failure, they also suffer from back pains because the kidneys are located on the right of the lower side of the right rib cage. The pain can be felt in the groin or the hip region. Kidney cyst can cause pains of legs and back. These kidney cysts are the large sacs of fluids that can cause a condition called Polycystic Kidney disease.
Puffy and swollen eyes
One major sign of the kidney problem is the accumulation of the protein in the urine which results in the puffiness around the area of eyes. The puffiness actually indicates that eh a large amount of protein in the body is being leaked into the person’s urine instead of distributing the said protein throughout the body.
To ensure if the body is getting its adequate distribution of proteins, keep a check on the puffiness of your eyes.
High Blood Pressure
The circulatory system of the human body is deeply interconnected with the kidneys. Kidneys are consistent of small nephrons that carry filters for filtering both the extra fluids as well as the waste from the human blood. If the blood vessels of the circulatory system get damaged, it hinders with the ability of nephorns to filter the blood for any waste materials. This is the reason that one of the major symptoms with kidney disorders is high blood pressure.
