Welcome to Kidney Consultants of Michigan

Where better health starts

What is kidney disease?

 

The kidneys filter waste and excess fluid from the blood. As kidneys fail, waste builds up.

Symptoms develop slowly and aren't specific to the disease. Some people have no symptoms at all and are diagnosed by a lab test.

Medications help manage symptoms. In later stages, filtering the blood with a machine (dialysis) or a transplant may be needed.

What are the Symptoms of Kidney Disease?

Detecting chronic kidney disease (CKD) can be tricky because the signs and symptoms of kidney disease occur late, after the condition has progressed and kidney damage has occurred. In fact, CKD is sometimes known as a “silent” condition because it’s hard to detect—and most people with early stage CKD are completely unaware of it.

While watching for late-stage symptoms won’t help with early detection, it’s still important to be aware of the signs. Remember, you shouldn’t wait for symptoms before you take action. If you are at risk for CKD, especially if you have high blood pressure or diabetes, it's recommended that you get screened at least once a year for any evidence of kidney disease and to learn your estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR). Your doctor can give you a blood test that will measure your creatinine levels and help determine your level of kidney function. The earlier CKD is detected, the greater the benefit of early treatment.

Talk to your doctor immediately if you notice any of the following CKD signs and symptoms: Click to read more..

How do CKD symptoms progress?

Symptoms of CKD develop slowly over time. Many people in the earlier stages (stages 1 and 2) of kidney disease do not experience symptoms at all and may require testing to receive a diagnosis. You’re more likely to experience symptoms in the later stages or end stage of kidney disease (stages 3, 4, and 5).

Diabetes and high blood pressure (hypertension) are the top two causes of chronic kidney disease. If you have a health diagnosis such as high blood pressure or diabetes, it’s important that you take control of your health and begin monitoring these conditions more closely.

Are symptoms of kidney disease different in men and women?

Although they both may experience the same symptoms, CKD may progress differently in men and women. Urinary tract infections (UTIs) and kidney infections are more common in women, which may cause kidney disease to develop.
