Symptoms of CKD : Most people with early CKD have no symptoms, which is why early testing is critical. By the time symptoms appear, CKD may be advanced, and symptoms can be misleading. Pay attention to these:
- Fatigue, weakness
- Difficult, painful urination
- Foamy urine
- Pink, dark urine (blood in urine)
- Increased thirst, not feeling hungry
- Increased need to urinate
- Trouble catching breath
- Puffy eyes
- Swollen face, hands, abdomen, ankles, feet
If kidney’s stop working suddenly following symptoms might occur: Abdominal pain, back pain, diarrhea, fever, nosebleeds, rash or vomiting.
CKD refers to all 5 stages of kidney damage – from very mild damage to complete kidney failure in stage 5. Stages of kidney diseases are diagnosed based on how well the kidneys do their job – filtering waste and taking extra fluid out of blood.
