Some of the common symptoms of kidney disease are:

  • Increased or decreased urine production
  • Loss of appetite
  • Swelling in the ankles and feet
  • Blood in urine
  • Extreme fatigue and tiredness
  • Muscle cramps
  • Dry and itchy skin
  • Shortness of breath (Iif fluid has accumulated in the lungs)
  • Problem in sleeping and concentrating
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • High blood pressure

If someone holds their urine for an extended period of time, they will experience a number of side effects.
Some of them are:

  • Pain
  • Increased risk of urinary tract infection
  • Increased chances of stone formation
  • Stretched bladder (permanent stretching of bladder muscles)
  • Pelvic floor muscle damage

Following are some of the measures that may help in maintaining a healthy kidney:

  • Eat a healthy diet
  • Drink a sufficient amount of water
  • Regular exercise
  • Avoid using medicines without consulting the doctor
  • Manage underlying medical conditions, such as diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and high blood pressure.
  • Limit the consumption of alcohol
  • Quit smoking
  • Get adequate sleep
  • Maintain a healthy weight
  • Manage stress through meditation and other stress-relieving techniques

Kidney disease and blood pressure are closely related to each other. The kidney plays a vital role in maintaining normal blood pressure. Therefore, patients with chronic kidney disease are at increased risk for high blood pressure. Further, elevated blood pressure weakens the blood vessels throughout the body, including the kidneys. Thus, high blood pressure in patients with chronic kidney diseases plays a role in its progression.

The function of the kidney is to filter blood and remove waste from the body through urine. Patients with complete kidney failure or significant reduction in kidney function require external devices to filter the blood. The process of filtering blood through external devices is known as dialysis. The frequency of dialysis depends upon the severity of the kidney disease.
