Early Signs of Kidney Disease

Kidney disease can eventually lead to kidney failure if left untreated. That’s why it’s important to be aware of the early symptoms and warning signs. Should kidney failure occur, you will need to receive dialysis treatments several times a week for the rest of your life – or until you can receive a kidney transplant.

Early signs of kidney disease include:

  • High blood pressure
  • Fatigue
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Swelling in the feet and ankles
  • Chest pains
  • Difficulty urinating

These symptoms can also be signs of another disease. The best way to detect and prevent kidney disease is to maintain regular checkups with your primary care physician. Remember that if you have a family history with kidney disease, then there is a higher risk that you will develop it.
