Symptoms of Diminished Kidney FunctionOur kidneys have many functions, such as produce urine, keep the water and electrolyte balance, regular the blood pressure, promote the generation of red blood cells and activate Vitamin D to maintain the balance of calcium in bones. Once the kidneys are damaged, they cannot function well and some symptoms will occur due to the diminished kidney function. The symptoms are present in many system and organs, such as:

1. Swelling and edema

This is the result of imbalance of water in the body. When kidney function is diminished, they fail to remove extra fluids out of the body so that swelling occur. Normally, swelling is found in the legs, hands, arms, ankles, face and abdomen. Sometimes, it will make patients feel painful. In addition, with much water is kept in the body, kidneys cannot form much urine and patients experience little urine in the early stage, which in turn worsen the swelling. At this time, diuretics are used to increase urine output to relieve swelling.

2. High blood pressure

Since kidney fails to maintain the balance of sodium, high level of sodium in the blood increases the blood pressure with water retention. at this time, diuretics, ACEIs (Angiotensin-Converting Enzyme Inhibitors) and ARBs (Angiotensin Receptor Blockers) are taken.

3. Fatigue

As mentioned above, kidneys promote the generation of red blood cells. Kidneys are the producers of EPO (erythropoietin), which is responsible for the generation of red blood cells. Therefore, patients with diminished kidney function always feel tired even they do not do some heavy work. This condition is called “anemia” in clinic.
