Top 5 Symptoms of Kidney Failure

Time:  2014-01-11 05:38

Top 5 Symptoms of Kidney FailureKidney failure is the end-stage kidney disease in which kidneys are only functioning at 15% or less. When kidneys lose their ability to work properly, a series of symptoms and discomforts will appear. Today, we are here to talk about top 5 symptoms of kidney failure.

1. Fatigue

Nearly all kidney failure patients complain of severe fatigue or feeling tiredness all the times. One reason is renal anemia. This is because diseased kidneys can’t produce enough EPO to stimulate the body to form enough red blood cells. Lack of red blood cells can lead to fatigue easily. The other reason is the build up of uremic toxins that can shorten the life span of red blood cells.

2. Skin itching

No matter whether kidney failure patients have begun dialysis, skin itching is always their concern. The mayor cause is high phosphorus level. When kidneys fail to work, they can’t remove extra phosphorus from the body efficiently. Extra phosphorus can lead to crystals depositing in the skin, so as to cause skin itching.

3. Swelling

Swelling is more likely to appear in legs, feet, hands, ankles, face and eyelid. With less than 15% of kidney function, fluid and sodium is more likely to retain in these regions. Besides, a heavy loss of protein in urine can lead to low plasma osmotic pressure, so as to cause or aggravate swelling.

4. Foamy urine and blood urine

Foamy urine means there is protein in urine, because of damage to kidney glomeruli. Blood urine means there is red blood cell in the urine. Both of these changes in urine are signs of kidney damage.

5. Sleep problems

For people with kidney failure, a lot of uremic toxins will build up in the body. These can shorten the life span of red blood cells. Besides, some side effects of medications can also cause sleep problems.
