Kidneys remove waste products and fluid from the blood, which if not working effectively can lead to a build-up of toxins. This can result in low energy levels, loss of appetite, weakness, trouble sleeping and more.

Ongoing damage can lead to kidney failure, which can then cause complications such as heart disease, anaemia, weak bones, high blood pressure and fertility problems.

Kidney disease can have very few symptoms in the initial stages, so it is important to monitor your kidney health especially if you have diabetes, high blood pressure or relations with kidney disease.
