Since toxins in the blood are not eliminated, this can disrupt the microbiome in the gut which results in a compromised gut barrier.
When the gut barrier is compromised, it results in bleeding in the esophagus, stomach, and small intestines (Upper GI).
Chest Pain and Shortness of Breath
Since the excess fluid is not eliminated by the kidneys, fluid may build up in the lungs causing a tight sensation in the chest and difficulty breathing.
Chronic Kidney Failure
Chronic kidney failure, also known as chronic kidney disease (CKD), is described as the slow deterioration of the kidneys. This gradual loss of kidney function can slowly progress for months or years. Kidney damage brought on by CKD is often irreversible.
People who experience CKD are often those who have conditions in their immune system and urinary tract. Those who are using drugs and have prolonged exposure to medications such as ibuprofen might experience CKD.
People with chronic kidney failure may not experience symptoms during its early stages. Blood and urine tests are necessary to detect kidney failure during this stage. Symptoms of acute kidney failure are also found in people with CKD.
Sintomas ng Kidney Failure (Chronic)
Metal taste in the mouth and bad breath
When the kidney is unable to function properly, urea, a key component of urine, builds up. When this occurs, a person might taste food differently and will also have bad breath known as ammonia breath. The metallic taste in the mouth may also result in poor appetite.
Numbness and tingling
The build-up of toxins in the blood can cause damage to the nerves (uremic neuropathy). Numbness and tingling (paresthesia) may occur in the toes and feet.
People with kidney disease are usually the elderly. Their skin is less elastic due to aging and is worsened by uremia or the build-up of toxins in the body.
