Since the symptoms of renal failure can be confused with signals of other diseases, it is important to pay attention to them and consult your doctor if these symptoms there are two or more.

The kidneys play a very important role in the functioning of our body. They are located in the lower part of the thoracic back and treated from 120 to 150 quarts of blood a day.

When kidneys are working well, they clean the blood of waste and excess fluid. This helps to avoid many diseases.

The kidneys maintain the balance of electrolytes in the body, contribute to the development of red blood cells and help control blood pressure.

Therefore, the violation of their normal work leads to serious health problems, poorer quality of life.

The most common pathology such as renal failure, and in many cases the symptoms in the early stages go unnoticed.

Because they are often confused with other health problems, many do not pay enough attention.

But early diagnosis is very important for successful treatment. We will talk about the eight major "alarms" that will help the time to diagnosis.

In renal failure this hormone is produced less and the body tissues get less oxygen. As a result, increases the feeling of fatigue.

Fatigue becomes chronic, a person experiences muscle pain and problems with concentration.
