Renal Signs and Symptoms

Acute and chronic kidney disease is very common, and health care providers should watch carefully for signs and symptoms of renal impairment.

Kidney disease can lead to many non-specific signs and symptoms, including fatigue, malaise, or anorexia. Acute renal failure can result in more severe signs, including hypertension, edema, changes in urine production, hematuria, or dark-coloured urine.
