Our kidneys represent one of the most important organs in our body. They are located just below the ribs and have the function to filter 120-150 quarts of blood each day. We need to have healthy kidneys so that we can keep our blood stable as well as prevent buildup of waste in our body and some extra fluids.

 

Our kidneys keep our electrolyte levels stable, but they also help our bones stay strong, produce red blood cells and regulate our blood pressure.
 
Therefore, these organs, located below the ribs, maintain the blood stable, prevent the accumulation of waste and fluids in the body, stabilize the electrolyte levels, produce red blood cells, regulate blood pressure, and strengthen the bones.
 
Yet, they often suffer from damage, which causes huge complications. Therefore, it is extremely important that you know the signs of kidney damage in order to prevent further health issues and treat the problem on time.
 
These are the most common symptoms of improper function of the kidneys:
 
Swelling
 
Damaged kidneys often lead to swellings in the body, especially in the leg, ankle, hand, face, and feet areas. The body cannot remove the accumulated waste and fluids and they cause swellings.
 
Fatigue
 
When healthy, kidneys produce the hormone EPO (erythropoietin), which forms red blood cells. These cells are needed for the proper supply of oxygen throughout the body.
 
In case the number of red blood cells is lowered, the person often experiences muscle damage, severe anemia, fatigue, and brain damage.
