1. Fatigue, a lack of energy, or difficulties concentrating

Toxins and pollutants can build up in the bloodstream if kidney function is severely impaired. This might make people feel fatigued and weak, as well as make it difficult to concentrate. Anemia, which can induce weakness and weariness, is another effect of kidney illness.

2. Problems with sleep

Toxins build up in the blood when the kidneys stop filtering it effectively. This may have an impact on the quality of your sleep. Obesity has also been linked to chronic kidney disease, and patients with chronic kidney disease have a higher rate of sleep apnea than the overall population.

3. Skin that is dry and itchy (itching)

The kidneys serve a variety of vital roles in the body. It eliminates waste and excess fluid from the body, aids in the formation of red blood cells, aids in the maintenance of strong bones, and acts to keep the proper balance of minerals in the blood. Dry, itchy skin can be an indication of a mineral and bone system malfunction, which is common in advanced renal disease when the kidneys are no longer able to maintain the proper mineral and nutrient balance in the blood.

4. The requirement to urinate more frequently

Urinating more frequently, especially at night, could be an indication of chronic renal disease. An increase in the need to urinate might be caused by damage to the kidney filters (nephrons). In men, this could also indicate a urinary tract infection or an enlarged prostate.

5. Urine with blood

When kidneys filter waste from the blood to make urine, they keep blood cells alive in the body. When the nephrons are injured, however, these blood cells can enter the urine, which is then excreted. Blood in the urine, on the other hand, can indicate the presence of a tumor, kidney stones, or an infection in the body.

6. Urine that is acidic or frothy

Excessive foam or bubbles in the urine, particularly those that vanish quickly after flushing the toilet multiple times, suggest the presence of protein. Because the normal protein found in urine, albumin, is the same protein found in eggs, this froth may resemble the foam we see when we beat eggs.

7. Bags beneath the eyes and swollen eyelids

Protein in the urine is a symptom that the nephrons, which allow proteins to flow into the urine, have been damaged. A considerable amount of protein is excreted in the urine, which can cause swollen eyelids and bags under the eyes.

  • In case of weakness, squeeze the juice from a wormwood plant. Mix a liter of wine and 150 grams of honey. Heat and, when it reaches boiling point, pour 40 milliliters of wormwood juice. Consume as a 3-week or year-round cure.
  • Drink mousetail infusions (1 teaspoon to 1 liter of water) to facilitate kidney activity. Sand and kidney stones are quickly removed with horsetail infusions. At the same time take the tincture-mother of nettle diluted according to the instructions for use.
  • Drink at least 3 cups a day of infusion from a mixture of dragee, nettle, nettle and spleen in equal amounts.
  • Drink 3 cups a day of knotweed infusion (one tablespoon to one cup of water).
  • Take a ponytail bath. Keep 100 grams of the plant in cold water all night and pour the liquid into the bath water the next day, which will cover the rooms and last for 20 minutes. The same bathroom can be served several times.
  • For low back pain, heat oatmeal in a pan, wrap it in a cloth and apply it on it.
