When the kidney or both kidneys malfunction, it could lead to a number of health complications, as the waste and toxins may not be able to get out of your body effectively. Many a time, due to bacteria getting into the kidney, through the urinary tract, the kidneys can get infected and the signs may not be very apparent. Not getting kidney infection treated could cause kidney stones and even kidney failure.

So, here are some of the silent signs of kidney infection you must never ignore.

1. Urge To Urinate Often
If you have been having an urge to urinate very frequently, even though your liquid intake has not increased more than usual, or you are not pregnant or suffering from diabetes, then it could be a silent sign of kidney infection. When the tissues of the kidney are affected by bacterial infection, they get inflamed and irritated, stimulating the bladder more, thus increasing the urge to pee often.

2. Foul-smelling Urine
Yet another silent sign of kidney infection is that the urine starts to smell foul or has a putrid odour. This odour will be very different from the normal odour of urine. This is because when the kidneys are infected, pus cells will be produced in them. The pus cells are flushed out through the urine and they give the urine this foul smell.

3. Pain During Urination
Many a time, when people, especially women, experience pain or a burning sensation during urination, they mistake it to be a symptom of a urinary tract infection and ignore it, as it is not very serious. However, it could also be a symptom of the kidney infection, especially, if it is coupled with a few other symptoms mention in this list. It happens, as the infection of the kidneys can inflame the urethra and bladder also, causing pain while urinating.

4. Difficulty In Starting Urine Flow
If you notice that even when you have the urge to urinate when you start to go, you may not be able to start the urine flow and may feel like nothing is coming out! This could also be because of the kidney infection, especially if it is coupled with pain, as the inflammation in the kidneys could be blocking the urine from passing out of the body with ease.

5. Back Pain
We know that the kidneys are located in the back region, on either side of the spine. So, naturally, when the kidneys are inflamed and infected, they could lead to back pain. This back pain is usually blunt and mild initially, so people tend to ignore it. However, persistent back pain can indicate kidney infection and must be checked.

6. Blood In Urine
Noticing blood while urinating, especially if it is coupled with pain and foul smell can surely indicate the kidney infection, although this sign may occur only in the later stages. The inflammation and infection can lead to bleeding in the kidneys, which gets mixed with the urine and is seen when it passes out of the body.

7. Flu
This is yet another silent sign of kidney infection which must not be ignored or mistaken for the regular flu. The flu occurs when any part of the body is infected, as the immune system will be fighting against the infection, causing flu symptoms. So, if you are experiencing flu, especially if it is coupled with one or more symptoms mention before, you must immediately get checked for the kidney infection.

Why Does Constipation Occur?
Constipation happens when the colon absorbs too much water. This occurs when the muscles in the colon contract slowly, causing the stool to move slowly and lose more water.

Poor diet, dehydration, medication, illness, diseases affecting the nervous system are some of the causes of constipation. The symptoms of constipation are passing lumpy or hard stools, straining, a blocked feeling and inability to pass stool.

Fortunately, certain fruits can help relieve constipation by softening the stool, decreasing gut transit time and increasing stool frequency. Watch on to know the fruits that help cure constipation.

1. Kiwi Fruits
A study found that people who ate kiwi fruit daily for four weeks had better bowel movements. It softened and increased the bulk of stools. The fruit contains an enzyme called actinidain which is responsible for improving bowel movements.

Another study was done by the researchers in Taipei also revealed that consuming two kiwis a day increased the bowel movements in adults with constipation. Each kiwi fruit has about 2.5 g of fibre and contains a lot of vitamins and minerals like vitamin K, vitamin C and vitamin E, potassium and folate.

The high fibre and water content make it an excellent fruit to get your bowels moving. Add kiwi to your diet along with other veggies, fruits, and beans to help ensure that you receive enough fibre to relieve and prevent constipation.

2. Apples
Apples have high fibre content. They contain approximately 1.2 g of soluble fibre and 2.8 g of insoluble fibre. The soluble fibre is mostly in the form of a dietary fibre called pectin. Pectin acts as a laxative which is rapidly fermented by bacteria to form short-chain fatty acids which pull water out of the colon, thereby softening the stool and decreasing the gut transit time (the digestion time).

Furthermore, apples improve digestive health by increasing the number of healthy bacteria in the gut. Consume apples with skin as it contains more fibre; you can add apples in your porridge or breakfast cereal.

3. Pears
Pears are rich in fibre. A medium-sized pear contains 5.5 g of fibre which is 22 per cent of the recommended daily value. Pears can help ease constipation because they have an abundant amount of fructose and sorbitol. Fructose ends up in the colon where it pulls in water by osmosis, thus stimulating the bowel movement.

On the other hand, sorbitol isn't well absorbed and acts as a laxative by drawing water into the colon, stimulating bowel movements. Try drinking pear juice to relieve constipation faster.

4. Oranges
Oranges are loaded with vitamin C and fibre which aid in increasing the bulk in your stool. One orange is known to have 3.1 g of fibre which is 13 per cent of the recommended daily value.

Some noted studies revealed that oranges are a good source of naringenin, a flavonoid that acts as a laxative. According to the US Department of Agriculture's Agricultural Research Service, eating the stringy white stuff between the orange flesh gives you most of the fibre from orange. It is advisable to eat the whole orange rather than having it as juice.

5. Figs
Fig is another fruit that can cure constipation. 1 medium-sized fig contains 1.6 g of fibre which is enough to promote healthy bowel movement. Researchers found that figs nourish and tone the intestines and act as a natural laxative due to their high fibre content. Add dried figs to your breakfast cereal as they have fibre in large quantities.

6. Prunes
Prunes are widely consumed as a natural remedy to treat constipation. Prunes, also known as dried plums, contain a high amount of fibre. The insoluble fibre in prunes such as cellulose escalates the amount of water in the stool, which adds bulk to stools. On the other hand, the soluble fibre is fermented in the colon to produce short-chain fatty acids which also helps in increasing the stool weight.

7. Bananas
Ripe bananas are widely consumed and earn the reputation of being the fruit that eases constipation. They are high in fibre which helps in curing and preventing constipation. The fibre content in bananas absorbs the water from the large intestine, thereby making the stools soft. It further improves the movement of the stool through your digestive system.

8. Berries
According to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), raspberries have 8 g of fibre in one cup. The fibre in them is great for relieving constipation by helping the stool pass smoothly through the digestive tract. Add a few raspberries in your yogurt or smoothies as a topping.
