In the early stages of CKD, the disease can develop asymptomatically. Therefore, many patients often miss the early treatment. In fact, if the disease can be detected as early as possible, the disease can be reversed completely with proper treatment. As CKD does not cause any symptom in early stages, periodic diagnostic tests are very important, particularly for those who are at high risk of developing CKD, such as people with diabetes and high blood pressure. If CKD get worse, Renal Failure may occur. In that case, it will not be possible to reverse the disease.
If you develop the following symptoms for no clear reasons, it is a wise choice for you to go to see a doctor.
Foam in urine
In normal condition, the foams in toilet will disappear after a while. However, if there is many foams in urine lasting for a long time, it may be due to protein loss in urine.
Increased urination at night
Healthy people usually go to toilet at night for 0~2 times. If you do not have much water before going to bed, but go to toilet frequently at nighttime, it may be associated with declined kidney concentration ability.
Swelling around eyes
Swelling may appear around eyes if you have too much water before sleeping. However, if the swelling lasts for several days for no reason, you should figure out if it is associated with CKD. It may be due to retention of fluids.
The above are early symptoms of CKD. If you have one or more than one of them, you should go to see a doctor.
If your kidneys have been damaged severely, the possibility of reversing CKD is slight. However, proper treatment is able to slow its progression and help you avoid developing Renal Failure.
