Kidney is a bean-shaped organ with multiple functions like adjusting bood pressure, keeping balance of electrolyte and acid-base, secreting necessary hormone and discharging wastes in blood. When kidney function is affected properly, our body will lose its ability to work normally, as a result of which, various abnormal symptoms like high blood pressure, proteinuria, hematuria, anemia and decreased urine output and so on appear.

Besides, as one of the major functions of kidney is to discharge wastes, including toxins produced by our body like creatinine and urea nitrogen, when kidney failure is caused, toxins pile up in the blood. These toxins circulate with blood and may reach out any part of our body. It is common to hear that kidney failure patients complain they are suffering serious nausea, vomiting, poor appetite and bad taste in mouth. Actually, all these symptoms belong to digestive problems which occurs when toxins in blood affect digestive tract.
