The only way to get an accurate diagnosis is to consult a doctor. But on the onset, here are some of the early symptoms to look out for when you suspect that there is something wrong with the kidneys. Having one or two symptoms does not automatically mean that you have a kidney problem, but if there are 7 or more signs, it would be best to see a doctor and get yourself checked.
Extreme Body Fatigue
If you have been feeling extremely tired without doing much then this could be a sign that you have an internal problem. People with kidney problem will feel fatigue most of the time, this is because the body can no longer make the hormone called erythropoietin which is essential in making sure that the body will function well. You can feel constantly exhausted and you would want to sleep a lot.
2. Feeling Cold
When you suddenly feel cold even if there is no aircon around, or if others feel warm, this could be another sign that you should look into. Anemia on the other hand can also make you feel cold all the time, even in a warm room.
3. Feeling Very Itchy
Once the kidneys fail you can start feeling very itchy, since the kidneys are no longer able to remove the wastes in the bloodstream. When this happens, a person with kidney failure can experience severe itching and sometimes it becomes too much causing blood due ooze out due to extreme itching.
4.Swelling in hands or feet
Swelling in the hands and the feet is one of the warning signs of a failing kidney. This is because the kidney can no longer remove excess fluid in the body and this tends to build up causing the swelling of the legs, feet, and hands.
5. Food Starts to Taste like Metal
When food starts tasting like metal, this should be a cause for alarm. This happens when there is a build up of waste in the blood. This can lead the food to taste like metal. If you suddenly stop liking meat because of this and other types of food, and you start losing weight then this could be a sign that you are having problems with your kidney.
5. Brown, red, or purple urine
Brown, reddish or purple color of urine is not normal. If your urine starts looking bloody and you begin to have a hard time peeing, or if your pee is smaller than the usual amount and gets darker and contains blood this is a big warning sign that you should be concerned of. Consult a doctor right away and do not self diagnose.
Kidney Problem and Stem Cell Treatment
The Harvard Stem Cell Institute is developing new therapies to repair kidney damage, reducing the need for dialysis and transplantation.
Kidney disease is still one of the most deadly types of illness. A lot of patients today still don’t have access to kidney transplant and patients usually have only two choices and this is dialysis or certain death. This is the reason why Harvard University and top stem cell California clinics like Feeling Good At Any Age The One-Stop Rejuvenation Center are working towards finding the ultimate cure for kidney problems.
Dialysis is very costly, time-consuming and not to mention painful. A person is hooked 3 to 4 x a week in a machine for 4 hours per session. The annual cost and reach up to $80,000 per patient or more. A single kidney transplant is also not very easy to do, due to the fact that at times there is no exact donor match. This is the reason why many clinicians and medical researchers are keen on looking for alternative treatments for kidney problem like stem cell therapy.
Mesenchymal stem cells
Mesenchymal stem cells is the human body’s natural defense system against kidney damage. It is found in the bone marrow, and these stem cells have the ability to protect the kidneys from injury by introducing accelerated healing. In a study released by Harvard Stem Cell Institute scientists have identified a protein that is secreted by mesenchymal stem cells that can be administered in people with kidney problems. Currently, as part of stem cell treatment options, doctors are incorporating miniature dialysis machines that expose patient blood to these cells, leading improved results when it comes to treating kidney problems since the proteins are directly delivered to the kidneys.
Artificial Kidney Using Stem Cells and Nanotechnology
The long term plan of doctors is to eventually create artificial kidneys with the help of stem cells and nanotechnology. This will solve the gap in the kidney transplant supply. Scientists as of date are already successful in creating an artificial rat kidney that can produce urine once transplanted into the animal. This gives promising hope that one day humans can also benefit from artificial kidney transplantation to prolong their life with the aid of stem cell technology.
