Renal disorders describe various diseases of the kidneys, while urological disorders apply to problems with filtering and carrying urine. While kidney disorders refer to the general decline of kidney function, a few common urological disorders are benign prostatic hyperplasia, urinary tract infections, and bladder cancer. Symptoms of renal and urological disorders include urinary incontinence, kidney stones, erectile dysfunction, weakness, fatigue, confusion, and an irregular heartbeat. Caregivers can help individuals manage these disorders by controlling diabetes and blood pressure, guiding them through regular dialysis appointments, maintaining their hydration levels, and encouraging them to quit smoking and reach a healthy weight.
