Symptoms of kidney disease range from very little symptoms to symptomatology, including shortness of breath, pain upon urination, dark urine, such as tea-colored or blood-colored. Unfortunately, kidney disease is often known as a silent killer. You may not feel any physical symptoms of kidney disease. Oftentimes kidney disease can only be diagnosed by your urine, which is a urine test, or blood, a blood test. And oftentimes those symptoms are missed by physicians, and that is what can lead to medical malpractice.
Kidney disease can be caused by many things, most notably high blood pressure. Hypertensive kidney disease is one of the most common forms of kidney disease. It is treatable often times if caught early, but diagnosing it is important. There are other types of kidney disease, which is diabetic kidney disease. There are some kidney diseases that the doctors have yet to find a reason or a cause. Unfortunately, some kidney diseases are not treatable at all. What’s important when kidney disease is diagnosed is follow-up, diagnosis, and treatment. And that can only be done by going to a physician, the physician paying close attention to the results of your test, whether it be blood or urinalysis, to help find an ultimate cause.
