Alcoholism kills everything and has to a considerable blow to the kidneys, which we see on those swollen and edematous limbs drunks. But this is only the external picture of what is happening inside. And inside the kidneys will inevitably begin to die.
Kidneys – the filters in the human body. They derive excess liquid and water soluble metabolites. But the cleansing of the body from unnecessary (toxic and toxic substances for him) – is not the only function of this organ.
The kidneys are also involved in intermediary metabolic processes in the synthesis of hormones, endocrine function they perform, are daily through the kidneys large volumes of blood, kidney and influence on the heart. Therefore their defeat alcohol is expensive man.
The role of the kidneys in the body is very important. They serve as a filter and excrete most of the waste products of vital functions, and is the principal organ of the urinary system. Toxins are obtained as a result of processing by the liver alcohol, before going out of the body passes through the kidneys. Pathogenic effects of alcohol on the kidneys proved. There are the following forms of renal disease when the use of alcohol: the appearance of proteinuria and pathological urine sediment with a single dose of alcohol; degeneration of the kidneys during prolonged and massive reception of ethyl alcohol; the development of acute renal failure in alcoholic delirium and withdrawal symptoms; the occurrence of myoglobinuria and acute renal failure in alcoholic defeat striated muscle (alcoholic myopathy); exacerbation of chronic glomerulonephritis and pyelonephritis under the influence of alcohol.
The effect of alcohol is accompanied by a constant intoxication kidneys and reducing their function over time, resulting in insufficient removal from the body of residual waste products, as a result there is the body poisoning, reduced immunity, there is a favorable environment for the propagation of viruses and the emergence of many diseases, which usually do not bind with the deterioration of kidney function. Furthermore, there is undermining of the entire urinary system, there is the risk of kidney stones and cancers, which can only be removed by surgery, and in many cases tumors are diagnosed at the stage where their removal is not possible, which inevitably leads to kidney loss or death.
