What are the symptoms of kidney diseases?

It's necessary to care about kidneys because these organs are also very important part of our organism. But usually we don't pay due attention to them: we eat unhealthy food, forget to drink clear water… And then our organism can start giving signals that something's wrong:

Changes at urination

  • It's one of the most obvious symptoms of kidney disease, it's simple to notice it.
  • You should get up several times in the night because of an urgent need to go to the toilet, but it results in only few drops.
  • Changed urine color or it becomes foamy, with bubbles. You need to go more often to the toilet, and urine has more dark color (Coca-Cola shade, because of blood clots).


In certain cases we can feel fatigue without any visible reason. What is the reason of fatigue and lack of energy?
Healthy kidneys produce hormone calld erythropoietin which is responsible for oxygen supply in blood. However at kidney disease the level of erythropoietin production decreases in direct ratio to deterioration of functioning of these organs. Thereof muscles are tired quicker, the quantity of red blood cells decreases, and less oxygen is supllied in blood. It can cause anemia — be careful!


Do your anklebones swell often? Is it difficult for you to put on your footwear? Perhaps, you have problems with urinary organs. But don’t worry ahead of time: sometimes it's simply connected with blood circulation.

It's worth paying attention whether other symptoms appear: hair loss, face edema, finger edema… It occurs when kidneys are not able to get rid of excessive liquid which accumulates in the organism.

Rashes on skin and an itch

The unexpected itch differing from usual: as if it goes from the bones or even from blood. It's quite unpleasant and appears when our kidneys cannot get rid of substances unnecessary for the organism. The last ones collect in our blood. It causes also unpleasant feelings and naggers.

Metal flavor in the mouth

One more symptom which needs to be meant. Perhaps, food gains specific flavor and loses its natural taste. Probably you can feel in your mouth also the smell reminding ammonia smell.

You can lose appetite: any product tastes like iron, something metal … These are signs that the organism suffers from a kidney disease. If these symptoms are constant, it's necessary to pay attention to them and define an appropriate treatment.

Nausea and feeling sick

Certainly, we know that feeling sick and unpleasant conditions can be caused by a set of factors. However when these symptoms appear even more often, you have to pay attention to them and consult the doctor. Such simptoms can be caused by toxins accumulation in blood (uraemia) which can lead to nausea and vomiting.
