10 Signs That Your Kidneys Aren’t Working Properly

3 – Headache, fatigue and general weakness

Healthy kidneys, which work properly, absorb vitamin D in our bodies to maintain strong bones and produce a hormone called Erythropoietin EPO. This hormone plays an important role in the production of red blood cells; when the kidneys are not working properly, they produce less EPO, and low red blood cells (those that carry oxygen) lead to rapid fatigue of the muscles and brain.

WARNING: It is common for people with chronic kidney disease to develop anemia. Anemia may begin to develop when someone has 20% to 50% of normal kidney function. If you get enough rest and sleep, but you continue to feel tired, have low energy levels, and have a general weakness, you should visit your doctor without delay.

4 – Unpleasant halitosis and feeling of metallic taste

When toxins accumulate in the blood, they change the taste of food and leave a metallic taste in your mouth; having bad breath is another sign of too many toxins and pollution in the bloodstream. Furthermore, you may stop wanting to eat meat and lose your overall appetite, which can lead to unhealthy weight loss.

Warning: There are many reasons why food has a metallic taste (from allergies to fungal oral health). Usually, the problem of a metallic taste in your mouth should disappear if the supposed cause is treated. If the bait continues to appear, you should contact your doctor.
