Medications And Kidney Complications, Symptoms Of Diabetic Ketoacidosis

Your kidneys are two organs located on either side of your backbone just above your waist. They remove waste and excess fluid from the blood, maintain the balance of salt and minerals in the blood, and help regulate blood pressure, among other functions. 1 If damaged, they can cause you to have health issues. Acute Renal Injury A sudden loss of kidney function can be caused by: lack of blood flow to the kidneys, direct damage to the kidneys, or blockage of urine from the kidneys. Common causes of these losses of function may include: traumatic injury, dehydration, severe systemic infection (sepsis), damage from drugs/toxins or pregnancy complications. 2 Chronic Kidney Disease When kidney damage and decreased function lasts longer than three months, it is called chronic kidney disease (CKD).

    Infectious diseases, circulatory problems, and neurological disorders may affect the leg. However, most pain in the legs is due to overuse, injury, and age-related wear to the muscles, bones, joints, tendons and ligaments of the leg, including the hip, knee and ankle. Usually these diseases are not serious, and you can largely prevent and treat overuse injuries and problems with self-care measures and lifestyle changes. For example, adequate rest between periods of exertion and abstaining from extreme sports without proper conditioning are two practical methods to avoid leg trauma.
    Leg pain can result from diseases that can be addressed through self-care measures or by following your health care provider's treatment plan.

    Edit: There are many reasons for knee pain, many of which are also degenerative or due to trauma from working out.

    1) age- are you overweight or over forty? Osteo-degeneration, (osteoarthritis) is one of the leading causes of knee pain without a specific cause.

Consult with a rheumatologist or chiropractor who specializes in Evidence Based rehabilitation to give you relief.
    2) Varicosities can cause aching and discomfort- but is not joint pain. If those varicose veins were lower, you could perceive that as lower leg pain, for example.
    To help differentiate...
    Is the pain better in the morning, but stiff? Does the stiffness goes away in under an hour? Consider osteoarthritis.
