Kidneys work harder to make up for the drop in capillaries so kidney disease produces no symptoms until almost all of its function is gone.

Common symptoms of kidney disease

The symptoms of kidney disease are not specific. Some of the kidney disease symptoms are as follows:

  • Urine appears dark or redness
  • Offensive odor from urine
  • Foamy urine
  • Frequent urination may be with pain or burning during urination.
  • Urinating too much or little
  • Persistent thirst
  • Swellings notable in the legs, hands and face
  • Raised blood pressure
  • Back pains around the renal area with fever.
  • Anemia, low hemoglobin in the blood
  • Shortness of breath
  • Tiredness or weakness without apparent cause
  • Dark puffy look under the eyes
  • Backache, headache, and fatigue
  • Itchy skins (pruritus.)

Other symptoms of kidney disease include:

  • Loss of sleep
  • Poor appetite

If you have any of the above-said kidneys, disease symptoms immediately consult your doctor and go for diagnosis.
