Do you have hypertension or diabetes? You may have kidney disease. If you show any abnormality on your lab work ask your doctor if you need to be seen by a specialist.
Kidney disease includes conditions that damage your kidneys and decrease their ability to keep you healthy. If kidney disease gets worse, wastes can build to high levels in your blood and make you feel sick. You may develop complications like high blood pressure, anemia (low blood count), weak bones, poor nutritional health and nerve damage. These problems may happen slowly over a long period of time. When kidney disease progresses, it may lead to kidney failure, which requires dialysis or a kidney transplant to maintain life. Below are some common kidney diseases.
Studies have shown that the sooner you see an expert in this field, the more likely it is you will avoid dialysis and live a healthier life.
