Signs and Symptoms of Chronic Kidney Failure
Your kidneys are vital for the excretory process of wastes in the body. As you know, these waste buildups are excreted as urine. When the kidneys job of cleaning blood toxins and waste products deteriorates, "Chronic Kidney Disease" occurs.
Mostly, kidney failure occurs in asymptomatic patients. Risk of sudden death is also counted.
In a small market, we gathered blood and urine samples of 100 people who claim to be healthy. Surprisingly, 22 people were suffering from chronic kidney disease, and 37 people were in need of special medical attention for kidney disease! Only 41 people were considered normal!
Why the majority of kidney disease victims did not notice their declining kidney function?
In the case of Mr. A at 32 years old, he felt sudden severe headache and palpitation. He seek medical attention and was diagnosed with kidney disease. He had to go through a strict diet. However, after 6 years of hard life, he is now forced to undergo kidney dialysis. In most cases of kidney disease, renal impairment is almost irreversible and has a small chance of recovery.
Early Symptoms of Kidney Disease
As the kidney function decreases, symptoms will appear like headache, weakness, dizziness, and low level of urination. Anemia, hypertension, and frequent urination can also be counted. In many cases, there are no signs of such symptoms at all.
According to medical information, apart from high blood sugar levels, high blood pressure, eating fatty and salty foods, stress, cigarette smoking, and bacterial infections can cause kidney disease. Also, hard work or hard athletic exercise increases the blood flow and the kidney cannot accommodate filtering the blood. It's also bad to take a lot of milk or other sports drinks that might produce too much protein as it may cause reduced kidney function.
Early detection of kidney disease can be done by urine test. At home, you can simply use urine test strips. If the result is not as expected, then, consult your doctor.
We have a news magazine written about two Japanese pro-wrestlers who never thought that they are suffering from kidney disease.
A popular pro-wrestler, packed with muscle and power, in his final match, lost and carried to a hospital. His sidekicks and doctors thought that the wrestler had some internal injuries occurred during his fight. But medical test showed unexpected kidney disease with him. The wrestler was sent for immediate surgical operation, but the damage was too serious. He never regained from kidney disease. After few days, the wrestler was gone.
Kidney disease is too dangerous, and could lead to death without any symptoms. Another popular pro-wrestler was losing recently for all his fights. To regain power, he had to eat a lot of meat and drink a lot of milk. One day, after his fight, he was also rushed to a hospital. Medical test showed that he was suffering from an advanced stage of kidney disease. He and his family never imagined that kidney disease was killing him. He is now under dialysis.
