What Are Considered Dangerous Signs for Renal FailureIn the early stage of chronic kidney disease (CKD), there are no obvious symptoms showing that their kidneys are not functioning well. That’s why a urine and blood test is so important. For kidney failure patients, their illness conditions have progressed into the end stage, and at this stage some signs that are considered dangerous for them will occur. Let’s see what are the symptoms so that proper treatment can be taken to prevent the deterioration.

1. Some discomforts

At kidney failure period, the glomerular filtration rate (GFR) has reduced to less than 15ml/min, which means that wastes and toxins produced after metabolism cannot be removed by kidneys. Those substances accumulate in many parts of the body, causing many discomforts like nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, poor appetite, tiredness or fatigue, and bad sleep, etc.

2. Swelling or edema

Besides wastes and toxins, fluids are also kept inside the body, and thus swelling or edema occurs. Usually, patients can see swelling of the eyes, hands, legs, feet and ankles. In addition, the urine output is decreased but you will have frequent urine. Other symptoms include shortness of breath or deep and slow breath due to pulmonary edema.

3. Proteinuria and/or hematuria

Proteinuria or hematuria occur because the damaged glomeruli leak out many proteins and red blood cells outside of the body through kidneys.

4. High blood pressure

If you do not have a history of high blood pressure, you should pay high attention to this symptom. Hypertension with kidney disease is due to water-sodium retention.
