Cold In Kidneys Causes: Symptoms And Home Remedies For Renal Pain

Question: My kidney is cold. What are the causes and home remedies for kidney cold?

Answer: I presume what you are referring to kidney cold is nothing but pain in the loins or colicky renal pain.

Loin is an area around the renal angle, which is the angle formed by the lower border of the last rib and the outer border of the back muscle. Kidneys are situated in this area.

Is it for the first time you have such type of pain? Was the pain one sided or in both sides of back?

Do you have other symptoms of urinary tract disease like burning urination, change of urine color, fever and chill with associated fever or pain while passing urine?

You will have to do further tests for evaluating the kidney disease, like routine urine examination, ultrasound of kidney, ureter and bladder or X- ray of KUB.

Urine examination will reveal if there is kidney infection, ultrasound will help to locate if there is any stone in the kidney.
