Early Symptoms or Signs of Kidney DiseaseAs we all know, kidney disease is uncurable. But if we can find this disease in the early time, the condition may have a great difference. Well then, how do you know that whether you have kidney disease? Here Beijing Tongshantang Hospital in China teach you some tips which can help you distinguish kidney disease.

Poor appetite

Poor appetite, even nausea, vomiting are the most common symptoms of kidney disease. Some patients always think that these symptoms are due to digestive system or liver disease, and when they find there is no relationship with digestive system, these symptoms are ignored easily. Patients forget to do kidney tests, while maybe poor appetite is caused by kidney disease.

Back pain

The kidneys are two bean-shaped organs, each about the size of a fist. They are located just the rib cage, one on each side of the spine. Therefore, if you are a kidney disease patient, you will feel back pain.

Swelling or edema

Kidney disease patients are prone to suffer from edema which easily occurs in eyelid or lower limbs. In severe condition, puffiness can spread on the whole body. If the edema appears on the eyelid, face, legs and so on, it indicates that there is something wrong with your kidneys.

Abnormal urine volume

Healthy people’s micturition number is about 4 to 6 times, and urine volume is about 800 ml to 2000 ml. If you have frequent urine and excessive urine or oliguria, you should pay much more attention. In addition, if there are bubbles in your urine, you should keep cautious. What’s more, proteinuria or hematuria is important symptom of kidney disease.


Diabetes can induce kidney problems, namely Diabetic Nephropathy which is the common complication.

High blood pressure

High blood pressure or hypertension can cause Hypertensive Nephropathy. Therefore, high blood pressure patients should monitor blood pressure all the time. Meanwhile, kidney disease also can lead to high blood pressure

Besides, kidney disease patients may experience symptoms like fatigue, anemia, headache, urinary tract infection, gout and so on. If you are suffer from more than two symptoms, you should go to hospital to do kidney tests. All in all, kidney disease can be reversed in the early stage.
