Top 11 Signs to Know If You Have Kidney Disease - Live Kidney Donation

Kidney Infection Symptoms and kidney diseases are typically silent until they reach the advanced stages. Most patients are not even aware that they have renal issues because there are little to no symptoms during the first phases. This, however, doesn’t mean that they are totally undetectable. In fact, aside from warning signs, there are also a handful of imaging and laboratory tests that you can take if you suspect renal problems.

Warning Signs

Changes in your urine’s characteristics
● Swelling of your extremities and even your face and neck
● Feeling tired all the time
● Trouble breathing
● Nausea and vomiting
● Ammonia-like breath
● Loss of appetite
● Feeling cold
● Itchy and dry skin
● Trouble concentrating
● Frequent muscle cramp

Top 11 Signs to Know If You Have Kidney Disease

These signs and symptoms are often associated with other medical conditions. Because of this, most patients with renal diseases are not immediately diagnosed correctly. If you experience any of these health issues, it’s best if you can consult your attending physician right away.


There are four types of tests your doctor can order to rule out or affirm any kidney disease you may have.

Blood Tests

● Serum creatinine measures the waste product, creatinine, in your body. Although its normal values can vary depending on gender, race and age, any result beyond the range can signal an impaired renal function.

● Glomerular Filtration Rate measures your organs’ ability to filter out and remove waste products from your system. If your kidneys are not working properly, a GFR of below 60 is expected.

● Blood Urea Nitrogen measures the amount of urea nitrogen. A test result beyond the 7 to 20 range can signal renal issues.


Biopsies are carried out by collecting tissue samples from your urinary tract using a thin cutting needle. It’s generally done to rule out specific causes, such as malignancies, or to determine your organ’s response to treatment.

Urine Tests

Urinalysis is one of the first diagnostic tests you may be prescribed with if renal problems are expected. This test can include both microscopic and dipstick tests to determine the presence of bacteria, protein, pus or even sugar in your urine.

Imaging Studies

CT Scan involves the use of contrast dyes to determine any abnormalities or obstructions in your urinary tract. While this test can help your doctor in his assessment, there are a handful of precautionary measures and risks you have to be aware of. Renal diseases, particularly those in their late stages are particularly vulnerable to its adverse effects.

Ultrasound is also often used to detect obstructions and renal abnormalities. However, instead of dyes, this imaging tool relies on sound waves in creating a picture of your kidneys.

Hyperconverged Solutions For Next Generation Enterprise

Hyperconverged Solutions are the biggest trends in the world of virtualization. The data center during the last five years or more has been changed and turned into integrated stacks that merge computing platforms, storage space, and networking into a complete system. The converged infrastructure is becoming so popular and rapidly transforming the world of information. The users who consume IT think hyper converged solutions is an ideal technique because it is so easy to use and reduces implementation time if something goes wrong.

The next generation enterprises are totally going to lean on newest development hyper-converged system in the scale-out computing technology, where it has a single node for storage, networking, computing and virtualization. The system has the simplified installation and administration that helps add more nodes to make it more scalable. Many storage problems can be easily solved with (SDS) software-defined storage for which enterprises can avoid the extra cost of staff and maintenance services. Nutanix provides such high quality applications and services that powers businesses in the online market. Due changing demands of today’s business world that needs simple, and less complications in operating with the storage services.  Velocity has partnered with Nutanix who leads with highly integrated software driven storage known as hyper converged system.

How Hyperconverged System Is Different From Converged System?

It is very important to know the differences between the traditional infrastructure, converged system, and the hyper-converged solutions. The traditional system of network infrastructure was built on the basis of hierarchical model that has three layers. The data center core layer connects to the distribution layer and it is further connected to the third layer called, access layer. The access layer is commonly located at the top of the rack and can have a vast number of ports for faster communication. This storage system is very expensive, complex, outdated, face many challenges it is maintained separately for storage, computing, and networking. The converged system is a further improved system over traditional infrastructure as it combines two or more of these infrastructure components to provide pre-engineered solutions.

Comparatively hyperconverged infrastructure is a software centric architecture that is quick to deploy, simplified management where complete virtual infrastructure is managed through a single interface without any specific server, or virtualization specialist. It works wonders for any kind of businesses, while eliminating hardware silos, performance tuning, and easy business resiliency.

Who Is The Leader In Hyper Convergence?

Velocity’s services rely on Nutanix as one of the fast emerging and most trustworthy leaders in creating a hyperconverged infrastructure and SDS (software defined storage) with innovative and fresh possibilities to the data center. Nutanix recommends built-in virtualization that makes whole infrastructure invisible and thus reduces space and storage complexities. It offers the software that completely transforms all the components into single x86 based component.

Velocity and Nutanix can provide services with lower costs, efficient operations, unlimited scalability, faster time in buying, deploying and managing. The software is easy to operate, resulting in saving time of handling issues and allows the enterprises to spend more time on innovations to expand their businesses. The main features include, intelligent software without having to spend time on handling hardware issues; all data, meta data are distributed efficiently across the entire cluster; tolerant to component failures with automatic recovery; simplified managing with single interface; wide-ranging mechanization for data efficiency.

How It Works?

The data center is fully software defined that consists of many layers such as the storage layer, compute layer, networking layer and services layer. The storage layer is gaining the popularity as it helps in building a product that reduces major challenges in the field of information technology. The hyper convergence is possible with the server hardware that uses a virtual storage application which manages SSDs and spinning disks that interact with the VSA in other nodes, and therefore creates a collective distributed file system and passes data to the hyper visors through iSCSI or NFS. Further vCenter plug-in is used to manage the whole process in the back end, by the virtualization.

There are basic features delivered with storage services that include, Dynamic tiers not just restricted to 2-3 tiers, use of server side cache devices due to cost effective caching, variety of data replication, high performance & ensured quality of service, creating proper backups, de-duplication helps to save money, compression for improving storage capacity, virtual desktop or cloning features improves overall performance of the system.

The virtualization is basically a primary component of SDS which is considered to be the superset technology on which whole hyper convergence solutions are based on. And virtualization is the abstraction through which all work load is operated by the virtual machine. The storage defined software is completely based on abstraction that means resources are decoupled away from the hardware. This improves performance and mechanizing the software by letting it decide how much to store according to the application needs.

Thus, SDS is not just a software or virtualization, or disparate storage, but it is a combination of all and is about performance, lower costs, intelligent data placement, complete management control, and fully automated.

What Benefits Can Businesses Get From SDS?

The hyperconverged solutions have become a trend only because it provide such tangible and ongoing business benefits to large, medium or small scale organizations. The next generation enterprises are going to rely on hyperconverged system as it adds extra space, low power consumption and cooling load.

Enterprises use silos for performance instead of using VM that works against the needs. The new trend is more simplified infrastructure, efficient use of existing resources, implements private cloud functionality with details of how much storage is consumed, allowing the business to optimize its environment. It also helps organizations to work in an innovative environment of virtual desktops, data analytics, improved power and capacity of the server, well designed storage system.
