Tips for Elders and Adults living with Kidney Disease

Your body is a remarkable thing, with organs that can compensate for problems in their functions. That is why chronic kidney disease (CKD) can progress without symptoms for a long time until only very minimal kidney function is left, leading to negative side effects.

If a woman knows that she has kidney problems, she should see a physician if she knows or suspects that she is pregnant. Seeing a health care provider is recommended for monitoring and treating chronic conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol.

Kidney cancer is a progressive disease, like Alzheimer or MS. There are several signs and symptoms that may suggest that your body is experiencing complications of kidney failure. Seniors experiencing the following symptoms should notify their doctors:

  • Change in energy level
  • Increased water retention in the legs, around the eyes, and other body parts
  • Nausea/ vomiting
  • Lightheadedness
  • Bone or joint pain
  • Easy bruising
  • Itching

Elders who are experiencing difficulty managing daily life with kidney cancer can consider hiring a kidney cancer caregiver to assist in tasks of daily living. A-1 Home Care is a local homecare agency with over 20 years of experience in the Orange County area.
