A dysfunctional kidney is a worse situation which we pray that none would face.
Today we will be sharing those little signals that our body is sending us when the kidney is dysfunctional. Do check up on yourself and if you find yourself involved in the following situations, consult a kidney doctor.
Facing trouble while sleeping
If you are facing constant trouble while sleeping even though you aren’t depressed, then this means that the kidney might not be working well. The sudden decline in sleep can be because of enhanced toxins in the blood which are disturbing the body and body is not able to feel relaxed enough to sleep.
You see, kidney tends to purify the blood by eliminating toxins into the urine. A dysfunctional kidney is unable to do so and effects the sleep.
Weakness, constant headaches, and fatigue
Red blood cells are vital for the body as they tend to supply oxygen to different parts of the body. With low red blood cells in the body, one is not able to get oxygen adequately which causes weakness and fatigue.
Moreover, if the oxygen supply is less towards the brain, headaches occur. Kidney converts vitamin D to produce Erythropoietin (EPO). EPO is necessary for red blood cells formation.
Those who suffer from Chronic Kidney disease tend to suffer from anemia. The symptoms of anemia are fatigue, pallor, white spots on face, and tiredness even though one gets proper sleep.
A healthy kidney removes toxins from the blood and maintains a healthy red blood cell in the body. A dysfunctional kidney is unable to do so which results in an imbalance of nutrients and minerals in the body. This causes the skin to become dry and itchy.
Bad Breath and change in taste
A poorly functioning kidney does not purify blood causing issues like bad to breathe and a metallic taste is felt in the mouth. This further reduces appetite and weight.
When the body is weak one tends to feel cold even though when they are at a warm place and when others are not feeling cold.
When one feels short of breathing even though they haven’t done something trying, this is a sign of anemia and in return kidney problem.
Swollen feet and hand
Swelling can be seen at different parts of the body due to the dysfunctional kidney as the blood is concentrated with toxins.
Having bubbly and foamy urine, dark-colored urine, difficulty while passing urine, vomiting, and nausea; all are signs of an unhealthy kidney.
