Recently many women friends consult us about the symptoms of kidney failure in women. It is necessary to know some typical symptoms of renal failure so as to help women patients to have early diagnosis and treatments and slow down progression of illness conditions.
The earliest symptoms and signs of women renal failure patients can be seen from their face such as paleness, looking yellowed and fatigue which are caused by renal anemia due to accumulation of metabolic wastes and toxins in the body.
Besides facial changes, women renal failure patients will have changes and discomforts in other organs.
Edema---decline of renal functions will cause delayed clearing of excessive water, electrolytes and wastes in the patients’ body, resulting in retention of water and sodium in tissue space and patients can have swelling around their eyes, arms, legs, hands and feet or in serious conditions cause pleural effusion, peritoneal effusion or even cerebral edema.
Urinary tract infections---even without renal failure, women are much more vulnerable to urinary tract infections. If you are now suffering from frequent urinary tract infections which can not be controlled with medicines, you need to go to kidney disease hospital to make further examinations and receive timely treatments or it will in turn worsen renal functions if the infections and viruses enter into the kidneys.
High blood pressure---women with kidney failure can have various degree’s high blood pressure. Renal failure can cause the secretion of some substances to increase blood pressure. These pressure-booster materials, along with retention of water and sodium, activation of renin-angiotensin-aldosterone can cause elevated blood pressure which needs to be treated properly and timely so as to slow down the decline rate of kidney functions.
Nausea, vomiting---the retention of metabolic wastes and toxins such as creatinine, blood urea nitrogen will affect digestive functions and cause abdominal distension, nausea, vomiting, etc.
Irregular menstruation or even amenorrhea---since kidneys have endocrine functions, renal failure can affect women patients’ normal menstruation and their fertility.
