Systemic failures in the human body are massive events and the consequent serious ailments exhibit symptoms that are difficult to miss. However, seeing symptoms and recognizing them for what they are have, throughout history, spelled the difference between timely treatment and eventual death. The early recognition of kidney failure symptoms has always been a beneficial aspect of managing this disorder, attributed largely to the unique nature of the nephritic system.
When everything is in order, we can literally see the workings, at least externally, of our liquid waste disposal system day in and day out, night after night, in fact several times in the day and – annoyingly—several times at night too. Unlike, say, our circulatory or even our respiratory systems, we can also readily and with glorious relief feel the flow—so to speak—of our nephritic system as it goes about its business hopefully unimpeded. And we can smell it too, and because some parts of our brains still retain vestiges of the post-lizard development of our keen mammalian olfactory sensing mechanism, it is a given that each of us has our own unique liquid waste product smell, urine to the less finicky, and the smell is not at all that unpleasant.
To the Joe and Jane on the street, recognizing these body-friendly features of the human nephritic system is the first source of data regarding the state of the entire waste liquid disposal works – the condition of the kidneys, the bladder, the urethra and the other sundry parts whose names we don’t really bother to know unless something goes wrong with them. Because the system is vital – literally life-giving – failure of any part is instantly on screen.
Consider the kidney failure symptoms that Joe and Jane can immediately recognize: First, because we see it work per schedule 24/7 when nothing is wrong, we immediately sense trouble when the disposal schedule alters. When we urinate too often, or too infrequently when we haven’t changed our life style or our normal routine, there is a failure there somewhere. Symptoms of kidney failure begin to emerge. And since we look at our urine as a matter of course before we flush it down to where it should be, we know that what we are seeing now is a urine of a different color, or no color whatsoever—again when we haven’t done any alteration to our normal days and nights. There, too, is something not working well. Second, the usual feeling of tremendous relief when the flow is good and fine will instantly be replaced by horror when there occurs pain with the flow, or no flow and all pain. You know the systemic failure has begun.
Finally, and one doesn’t need an expert to tell you this, when it smells different, harsher and unfamiliar and somehow alien, kidney failure symptoms cannot be any clearer: kidney failure is well on its way. As soon as one comes face to face with kidney failure symptoms, it’s time to see the doctor—unless, and that’s a relief, one has already done it earlier.
