Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Pain in the abdomen and waist, dizziness, difficulty sleeping, tingling, itching, decreased appetite, and also slowness in thinking do not always indicate kidney disease.
Kidney is one of the excretory organs whose function is important in removing harmful metabolites from the body in the form of urine. Kidneys also play an important role in maintaining fluid and electrolyte balance in the body. There are many diseases of the kidneys, and each can have different symptoms.
The various complaints that you experience can arise due to many reasons, and not always all of them are related. Some of the most common possibilities are:
Causes of pain in the abdomen and waist: urinary tract infections, dyspepsia (increased stomach acid), ovarian cysts, endometriosis, premenstrual syndrome, dyspepsia, kidney stones, kidney infections Causes of dizziness: lack of sleep, hypotension, hypoglycemia, dehydration, anemia, vertigo Causes difficulty sleeping: stress, unfavorable environment, irregular sleep patterns, bronchial asthma, rheumatoid arthritis, drug side effects Causes of tingling and itching: skin infections, vitamin B deficiency, diabetes, allergies, liver disorders Causes of decreased appetite: stress , chronic infections, extreme diets Causes of slowness in thinking: unfocused, poor sleep quality, hypoglycemia, head injury, malnutrition, etc. You can observe from the explanation above, that there are many possibilities that could underlie your complaint. Therefore, you should immediately consult a doctor to be thoroughly evaluated for what is causing it. If necessary, X-rays, ultrasound, blood tests, or other supporting tests may be carried out by the doctor so that the diagnosis can be made correctly and treatment can be carried out on target.
