The prevalence of kidney disease is frightening and our elevated levels of toxin exposure continues to chip away at the proper functioning of this important organ. Once your kidney function becomes compromised, so does your health. Know the signs of kidney damage, and things you can do to naturally improve its function.
Lower back pain
Lower back pain
One of the first and most consistent signs of kidney damage, or just slow and unhealthy kidneys, is lower back pain.
Sometimes it's only on one side, which occurs if someone sleeps on only one side, and this will be the side the kidney is having more problems with due to gravity. But in most cases, at least shortly after it's on one side only, the pain will move to both sides.
A typical example is waking up in the morning or even in the middle of the night and your lower back, one side or both, aches. You go to urinate and it may or may not come easily. Then your back loosens up a bit and feels much better.
This is an early warning sign of kidney damage, and is much more treatable if addressed quickly.
Rashes, itching, and dryness
Kidneys help remove wastes from the bloodstream, so when they fail, the build up of wastes in your blood can cause rashes, severe itching, and dryness.
This is often an early sign of kidney damage, and should be taken seriously. Avoid the temptation to treat it with topical creams, which does nothing to rectify the actual problem.
