7 Signs That Shows You Have A Damaged Kidney

The kidney is a very important part of the body. It is so important because it does so many important things. The kidneys remove waste and extra water from the body. The kidneys also get rid of the acid that your body makes. They keep a healthy balance of water, salts, and minerals like sodium, calcium, phosphorus, and potassium in your blood. Take good care of them so that they don't get hurt.

Because the kidney is like a live wire, any damage done to it will have a big impact on the rest of the body. Life would not go on without the many things this organ does. Chronic kidney disease affects about 15% of people in the world. It takes a long time for the kidneys to lose their ability to work properly, and this happens over several years. Waste builds up as the kidneys fail, so it takes longer to get rid of it.

There are a lot of things your body will start to show you when your kidney is hurt. Some of them are:

Less urine output, though sometimes urine output is normal.

Your legs, ankles, or feet may become swollen because of the retention of fluid.

Feeling tired and short of breath.

Nausea.

In this case, the heartbeat isn't even.

When you start to notice these signs and symptoms, pay attention to your kidney right away.

Abuse of painkillers.

Eating processed foods.

Excessive intake of meat.
