Once back pain occurs, people are worried that it may be caused by kidney disease. The truth is back pain is not the most accurate sign of kidney problems. In general, kidney stone, nephropyelitis and kidney cyst are the common causes of back pain.
However, in most cases, there are no obvious symptoms unless more than half of kidney function has lost, since the kidneys have a strong compensatory ability. People who have renal insufficiency can have no symptoms.
Well then, what are the signs and symptoms of kidney disease? Not only back pain, but also swelling, protein or blood in the urine are the common signs. When there are many bubbles in the urine, and won’t disappear in a long time, it may indicate proteinuria. At this time, you should be concerned, and takes immediate urine test. Well then, how can you know you have kidney disease earliest?
