So I think my problems come from my kidneys. I believe I might have kidney problems/border line kidney failure!
This would explain my inability to urinate! And I also read that drinking more water while having water retention is bad. It overloads your kidneys and also absorbs all sodium in your body.
My question is, what are the symptoms of kidney malfunction? This isnt talked about as much. Can slow kidney function cause all my symptoms? Can kidney problems cause constipation? Are any of these related?
Sorry to be a pain in your neck guys, but I am just confused as to what is going on with my body. At 22, I should not be this unhealthy. Like can kidney malfunction cause weight loss and malnutrition? It definitely describes my inability to urinate. I drink water all day, yet I never have the urge to pee. My stomach just balloons out like I am pregnant. My urine is also always dark yellow.
Another question....can taking a ton of supplements cause kidney stress? Ive always taken supplements throughout my whole life....i mean like bodybuilding supplements. Protein, creatine, amino acids, vitamins, etc....is that too much for my body to handle? So my body just shut down?
