  • What are the symptoms of kidney disease?

    1 edema. The kidney is the organ of the human body excretion of water, kidney is not good, excess water will accumulate in the body. Patients with early onset of eyelid, face and lower extremity edema, and then to the development of persistent or systemic edema, severe pleural effusion, ascites.
    2 poor appetite. When renal problems, creatinine, urea and other toxins will gradually accumulate in the human body and stimulate the gastrointestinal tract, and loss of appetite, the stench of urine, tongue and oral mucosa ulcer, abdominal distension, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and gastrointestinal hemorrhage. This is even the first symptoms of many patients with kidney disease.
    3 skin itching. Renal insufficiency, due to the body toxins such as urea nitrogen and creatinine cannot be fully discharged, resulting in urea cream and calcium salt deposition in the skin, often itchy skin, with facial skin become darker in color, dry and dull, sallow complexion.
    4 symmetrical skin bleeding point. Symmetrical skin bleeding occurs at the distal end of the extremities, protruding from the skin surface, and does not fade. In particular, on the basis of the presence of hematuria, edema and elevated blood pressure, we must check whether there is no kidney damage.
    5 anemia. Impaired renal function may lead to a reduction in the life span of red blood cells, decreased secretion of erythropoietin, and poor bone marrow hematopoietic function. At the same time, due to reduced intestinal absorption of iron and folic acid, resulting in decreased levels of red blood cells in the body, the presence of anemia.
    6 joint pain. People with high levels of blood uric acid, uric acid can be deposited in the kidney, so that impaired renal function. Therefore, middle-aged men suddenly toe, foot, ankle, knee joint swelling and pain, and edema, hypertension, nocturia and other situations, in addition to the clinic, to remove kidney disease.
    7 lumbago. Some patients will be unexplained renal pain, usually unilateral low back pain, also can appear bilateral low back pain, to exclude the possibility of kidney stones, hydronephrosis. In addition, some chronic glomerulonephritis and chronic renal insufficiency, may also appear back discomfort.
    8 pain. Due to the activity of vitamin D3 decreased the metabolism of calcium and phosphorus, the patient will appear osteitis fibrosa, osteomalacia and osteoporosis, often for symptoms such as bone pain and inconvenience.
    9 high blood pressure. In addition to the function of excretion of urine and metabolic waste, the kidney has the function of regulating blood pressure. When the renal function is impaired, the body will occur on the one hand, sodium and water retention, on the other hand, renin, angiotensin and other substances increased, resulting in increased blood pressure in patients with hypertension and renal damage itself will increase.
    10 blood glucose fluctuation. In type 2 diabetic patients, 8%~10% may develop into diabetic nephropathy, and the renal function will be decreased in the patients with poor glycemic control and proteinuria, and finally develop into chronic renal failure. Therefore, control of blood sugar, but also beneficial to kidney health.
