What Are the Kidney Shutdown SymptomsKidneys perform many functions in body such as regulate blood pressure, release hormones, filter the blood etc.If kidneys shut down, it can cause an array of symptoms. What are the kidney shutdown symptoms?


When a person’ kidneys shut down,the kidneys fail to remove fluid from body normally,thus leading to high levels of fluid in the body.Swelling can occur in legs and ankle.In serious case,if the lung is flooded with fluid, it can cause shortness of breath. Here are some natural tips to help the discharging of fluid from body. You can consult us on line to get personalized suggestions.


Healthy kidneys produce the hormone erythropoietin that stimulates the bone marrow to make oxygen-carrying red blood cells. As the kidneys fail, they produce less erythropoietin, resulting in decreased production of red blood cells to replace the natural breakdown of old red blood cells. As a result, the blood carries less hemoglobin, a condition known as anemia. The patients often experience fatigue, pale face and shortness of breath due to this condition.

Skin itching

Skin itching can make the patients frustrated.It is attributed to a build up of phosphates in the blood the diseased kidneys cannot filter out.High level of phosphates can lower levels of calcium, thus resulting in muscle cramps.

Vomiting and nausea

Vomiting and nausea is due to high levels of urea in the blood and its one of common kidney shutdown symptoms.Urea is the byproduct of proteins and is normally filtered by kidneys.High levels of urea in body can stimulate gastrointestinal tract, resulting in vomiting and nausea.

Urinary changes

As the kidneys fail to filter extra fluid from body,it will cause urine output to reduce.When the kidneys shut down completely, the patients will have no urine output. If proteins in blood leak in to urine, the urine will become foamy. Cola-colored or red urine can occur due to loss of red blood cells in urine.
