Kidney Function

The normal kidney performs many jobs. They remove extra water, waste products, and balance chemicals in our body. The kidneys also help control blood pressure, build strong bones, and make red blood cells for hemoglobin.

Some reasons our kidneys stop working are due to the effects of high blood pressure, diabetes, multiple kidney infections, injury, birth defects, certain medications and other kidney diseases.

When the kidneys start to fail, they are not able to clean the waste products from the blood. This creates a build of waste products in the blood, which causes you to feel bad. This is called uremia, which means "urine in the blood."

Some common symptoms that you might feel are extreme fatigue, nausea and vomiting, shortness of breath, difficulty sleeping, and swelling in the feet, hands and face, and/or high blood pressure.

Dialysis

Once your kidneys are not functioning well enough to keep you feeling well, you will need to start dialysis. Dialysis is a procedure to treat kidney failure. It does some of the things that a normal kidney does, like remove extra water from the body and remove some of the waste products that have built up in the blood.
