Symptoms of kidney disease

Detecting kidney disease in its early stages can be difficult, which is why it’s important to understand the signs and symptoms so you can act early on. Common causes of kidney failure include diabetes and high blood pressure. We recommend seeing a kidney specialist for kidney care if you experience the following:

  • Anemia
  • Changes in urination
  • Leg/flank pain
  • Shortness of breath
  • Swelling
  • Uremia
