Back Pain and Kidney Disease

Back Pain and Kidney Disease

Back pain is a common complication from kidney disease. It can affect your life quality greatly. When you have abnormal back pain, it can indicate chronic kidney disease. There are several causes of back pain from kidney disease.

1.Kidney infection

Diagnosis in men is based on a hemoglobin of less than 130 to 140 g/L (13 to 14 g/dL), while in women, it must be less than 120 to 130 g/L (12 to 13 g/dL),[4][5] Further testing is then required to determine the cause.

2.Kidney stones

Kidney stones are solid deposits that can accumulate inside the kidneys. Stones can be large and small. Kidney stones scrape against the lining of the urinary tract and the large stones can block the flow of urine. This causes the fluids to back up and enlarge the kidney. The pain is severe and it begins in the flank area and may travel down the side and into the groin as the stone moves through the urinary tract.

3.Kidney cancer

Kidney cancer can result in a tumor that over time causes dull pain in the back.

4.Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD)

PKD, a hereditary disease, can result in gradual enlargement of the kidneys that is felt as pain mainly in the abdomen, and sometimes the back as well.
