The human is truly a biological wonder. Not only does it work constantly, but it also improves and maintains itself with minimal external interjection. There are times, however, when one part or the other will succumb to sickness, henceforth jeopardizing the entire body since it is all a well-oiled machine that depends on each and every cog to function optimally. For example, when the kidneys are malfunctioning, the body starts sending signals to show what is wrong, and it would do well to remember them. To help you with that, here are 10 signs that your kidneys are not working as well as they should.
1. Sleeping issues
Toxins, waste, and excess fluids accumulate once your kidneys stop working properly, and the former substances end up poisoning the blood since they do not get flushed out through urine. The huge amounts of toxins will make it much harder to sleep, and, even when you do sleep, it is notably less than usual. The lack of sleep will end up accelerating the kidneys’ failure.
A kidney disease patient is also prone to sleep apnea, which pauses of breath while sleeping which can last up to 60 seconds, and which end up with the patient snoring due to the violent way the breath comes back.
