Because your kidneys are highly adaptable and able to compensate for lost function, signs and symptoms of Chronic Kidney Disease may not appear until irreversible damage has occurred. Chronic Kidney Disease can lead to: high blood pressure, fluid in your lungs (pulmonary edema), heart and blood vessel disease, weak bones and an increased risk of bone fractures, anemia, decreased sex drive, erectile dysfunction or reduced fertility, damage to your central nervous system, which can cause difficulty concentrating, personality changes or seizures… do I have your attention yet? Factors that may increase your risk of chronic kidney disease include: Diabetes, High blood pressure, Smoking, Obesity, Older age, and more. UH Samaritan’s Dr. Aaron Young specializes in Kidney diseases and is eager to fill you in on this sneaky foe.
