Urine smell in the mouth? Why do so many young people get this disease

How are your kidneys? Today, the topic that Chun Yujun wants to talk to you about is a bit exciting, don’t think about it, it’s a very simple “kidney”. Because Chun Yujun saw a document that showed that the incidence of uremia was younger, and patients between the ages of 10 and 30 accounted for 40% of the total number of uremia patients [1]. That is, out of 100 sick people, 40 are young people. You have to know that this used to be considered a disease of old age… Is it true that young people are beginning to age prematurely? As a positive, never-say-die Chun Yujun, how can you let time go first, you must find the truth.

The main job of the kidneys is to help our body expel wastes. If the kidneys are damaged and these wastes cannot be excreted, inflammation will slowly appear, which is what we call chronic nephritis. Many people have no obvious symptoms during this period, but some people will find clues. If there is no timely intervention, and it develops to a certain extent, fibrosis and hardening will occur. At this time, the body will experience difficulty in excretion, and other organs will also be affected. If left uncontrolled, complete loss of kidney function can develop into uremia, and uremia—irreversible.

During the development of the disease, the body actually sends us a distress signal. If you can get it and identify it, it is likely to be avoided. If you have the following symptoms, you must pay attention. Knock on the blackboard and write down the following key points in a small notebook.

Early Signal

1) Yellow complexion: Many patients with uremia will have symptoms of anemia in the early stage, such as pale and yellow complexion, pale lip nails, etc. Therefore, yellowing can be said to be one of the early symptoms of uremia.

2) Bad breath: If bad breath occurs, and the exhaled breath smells of urine, be vigilant.

3) Itchy skin: If the kidneys are severely damaged and the waste in the body cannot be excreted, they will find another way to excrete part of the skin from the skin, which will stimulate the skin and cause itchy skin.

4) Abnormal urine output: if there is polyuria or oliguria, for example: urination less than 400ml in 24 hours is oliguria, more than 2500ml is polyuria, or there is increased nocturia phenomenon, we should pay attention [2].

5) Edema: If there are symptoms of edema, it is a relatively obvious signal. If you have edema, press a hole, you really have to go to the hospital as soon as possible [3].

Common reasons

1) Overuse of antibiotics: antibiotics such as sulfonamides, kanamycin, gentamicin, streptomycin are toxic to the kidneys.

2) Staying up late: staying up late for a long time will affect the self-repair of body organs, which may cause kidney deficiency in the long run, and will also affect the excretion of toxins in the body, resulting in excessive accumulation of toxins in the kidneys, which will lead to Increase the incidence of uremia.

3) Chronic diseases are not treated for too long: Uremia is not a natural disease, there are many around us such as high blood pressure, high uric acid, diabetes, etc. It is easy to cause various complications, which seriously affects the blood circulation in the body, so it is easy to destroy the filtering function of the kidneys and increase the burden on the kidneys.

4) Often eat foods high in phosphorus: phosphorus is an indispensable element in the body, excess phosphorus needs to be filtered in time by the glomerulus, and then excreted. In life, if you often eat some animal livers, egg yolks, etc., high-phosphorus foods, it will increase a great burden on the kidneys, so you must control the amount of intake while supplementing phosphorus.

5) Like holding back urine: Frequent holding back urine can easily lead to urinary tract infection and pyelonephritis. Over time, repeated kidney infection may develop into uremia [4].
