Kidney Disease Signs & Symptoms
The kidneys are highly adaptable which means that they can compensate for a loss of function. This means that most patients won’t notice symptoms until serious damage has occurred. One should also note that many of these symptoms are nonspecific, meaning other illnesses could be causing them.
The most common symptoms of chronic kidney disease include:
- Loss of appetite
- Nausea and/or vomiting
- Issues sleeping
- Malaise or a decrease in mental sharpness
- A change in how often you need to pee
- Cramps and muscle twitches
- Constant itching
- Swelling in the ankles and feet
- Shortness of breath from fluid buildup in the lungs
- Chest pain from fluid buildup around the heart
- Hight blood pressure
Please Note: Our call center is open from 7 AM to 5 PM on weekdays if you have any questions about our kidney disease clinical trials or any of our other enrolling studies. Please give us a call at (386) 785-2400.
