Kidneys and Kidney Diseases: What You Must Know


Most people are born with two kidneys that are located on either side of the spine just underneath the ribs. The kidneys act as filters that clean the blood and eliminate wastes and water from the body. The wastes are what remain in the blood from food utilized by the body and the body’s various functions. Some wastes are eliminated from the body through the urine, which passes through the ureters and into the bladder.
There are instances when the kidneys can stop from functioning properly due to a number of reasons. Individuals who have hypertension or diabetes are more at risk. Kidney diseases start to emerge when kidneys fail to work. These diseases develop gradually and impact the kidneys and other organs of the body, particularly the heart. 

Kidney diseases work by damaging the filters in the kidneys so that they cannot eliminate water and wastes. When the filters are damaged completely, the body will fill up with excess water and wastes that would typically be eliminated by the healthy kidneys. Despite the fact that an individual with kidney disease may still be excreting urine, there are insufficient wastes in it to ensure their healthy state and rather the wastes accumulate in the body.

What Kidneys Do
Kidneys are special organs that perform special functions. Healthy kidneys work by keeping a balance of minerals and water in the blood. Minerals include phosphorus, potassium, and sodium. Kidneys also eliminate waste from the blood following digestion, exposure to chemicals, muscle activity, or medications. Kidneys produce renin, which is utilized by the body to regulate the blood pressure. Kidneys also produce erythropoietin which signals the body to produce red blood cells. Finally, kidneys produce Vitamin D that is needed to keep the bones healthy.

Chronic Disease or Not
Most kidney diseases do not render any manifestations until the later part. Nonetheless, you can still have some basic examinations to assess whether or not you have a chronic kidney disease.
The fundamental tests are:

  • Have your blood pressure checked. A high blood pressure is a possible indicator for the presence of a kidney disease.
  • Have your urine checked for protein. Insufficient protein from the kidneys indicates kidney damage.
  • Have your creatinine level examined. The creatinine level measures how well the kidney functions.

How to Stop or Slow Down Kidney Damage
Kidney diseases especially the chronic ones are not curable from a medical standpoint. The good news, however, is that if you detect the problem early, there are various ways to help slow down the damage. Lifestyle changes including exercising, losing weight, stopping smoking, eating less salt, and drinking less alcohol are just some of the potent remedies.

Naturopathic interventions or micro-current therapy may be helpful in restoring a higher level of renal functioning.
