Common Symptoms of Kidney Failure
Kidney disease can sometimes be hard to detect,
and not always show obvious symptoms. The main way to ask if you are
showing the symptoms is to ask yourself if you are at risk. Kidney
disease is 99% of the time the result of poor dieting and malnutrition.
What you will notice when symptoms start to appear is when you start to
see irregularities in waste products clearing the body, onset of
weakness, fluid retention, some mild pain or even slight discomfort
All of these symptoms of kidney failure should
immediately ring alarm bells and need immediate adjustments to diet and
All of these will result in directly related
medical symptoms, such as excess potassium levels causing heart rhythm
problems, an increase in urea levels in the blood - which can affect a
number of organs in the body, anemia - resulting in general weakness,
loss of appetite due to build-up of excess waste products - which will
result in further issues all contributing to kidney failure, rising
blood pressure due to the acid load on the body and trouble breathing.
It is extremely important, that even if you feel
the onset of kidney failure as being an option, to drastically change
your diet to help lighten the load and strain on your kidneys. This can
even reverse kidney failure if it is undertaken as soon as possible.
With western diets contributing to all the common
forms of kidney failure, it is the best option to reverse any chances
of suffering kidney failure and help restore health to the body.
