The following vitals have a location right under the rib cage. They are responsible for cleansing and detox, i.e. filtering 10-150 quarts blood daily. This is essential for all the body functions and keeping the blood healthy too.The kidneys are responsible for excessive fluids or waste material from the organism. They regulate the levels of electrolytes and keep bones healthy and strong, make more red blood cells and stabilize the blood pressure.
If the kidneys are in trouble and can no longer function, as usual, the health is in big trouble. Read carefully to recognize and prevent and problems linked to kidney damage or failure:
When kidneys start to fail at their “job”, they can get rid of excess fluids less and less and this will make the face bloated and swollen, also the joints and limbs.
The most obvious and early signs are these:
- Trouble urinating
- Pressure during the process
- Dark urine, less frequent urinating and with small amounts
- Pale color of urine, frequent and in large amounts
- Foamy urine
- Many urge to urinate during the night
Rash of the skin
The waste buildup in our body can be linked to kidney failure – the skin gets a lot of rashes and itching. All the waste gets piled up in the blood and makes the skin look unhealthy, dry and irritated. Lotions and creams and cosmetics can ease up a little bit, but don’t solve the problem which comes from the inside – IF the rash is directly caused by the kidney problems of course.
If the kidneys are healthy they produce EPO (erythropoietin), a hormone that makes more red blood cells which bring oxygen to where is needed. If the red blood cells number is lowered, fatigue will occur and it will have an impact on the brain and muscles too. This is also a sign of severe anemia.
