What are kidneys and why are they important?
Think of your kidneys as a coffee filter. When you make coffee, the filter keeps the coffee grains inside but allows water to pass through. Your kidneys do something similar. They keep the things you need inside your body but filter out things you don’t need.
Your kidneys also keep the rest of your body in balance by:
- Removing waste and poisons from the body
- Balancing the body’s fluids and acid levels
- Helping to control blood pressure
- Helping bones stay healthy
- Helping to make red blood cells
What are the symptoms of kidney disease?
Most people with early kidney disease do not have symptoms. In the later stages of kidney disease, the person may:
- Feel tired or short of breath
- Have trouble thinking clearly
- Not feel like eating; feel nauseated
- Have trouble sleeping
- Have dry, itchy skin
- Have muscle cramping at night
- Need to go to the bathroom more often, especially at night
- Have swollen feet and ankles
- Have puffiness around the eyes, especially in the morning
