Our kidneys are extremely important for the entire body, as they filter the blood and eliminate any waste and toxins from the system. Therefore, their dysfunction can lead to severe health problems.
The function of the kidneys can be reduced by numerous factors, such as alcohol consumption, smoking, hereditary kidney problems, and unhealthy starchy foods.
A kidney disease leads to the accumulation of waste and excess fluid in the body. In many cases, patients do not experience any symptoms until late in the course of the disease. Yet, you need to know the 7 most common signs of kidney disease, which can help you prevent additional complications:

A creatinine and Blood Urea Nitrogen (BUN) blood test, outside the normal range, indicating waste buildup in the blood due to a reduced kidney function
