When the Kidneys lose their ability to clean the blood and their entire function gets disrupted when a person is likely to have kidney disease.  Kidneys help in maintaining blood pressure and affect the production of red blood cells, vitamin D, and metabolism which is required for good health. Kidneys are required to detoxify and remove chemicals that are accumulated in the body. If Kidneys are damaged then the waste products and the fluid can get built up in the body that can create life-threatening conditions. Damaged kidney causes swelling in ankles, nausea, weakness, poor sleep, shortness of breath, and much more.
