Top 5 Symptoms of Stage 5 Kidney Failure

Top 5 Symptoms of Stage 5 Kidney FailureStage 5 Kidney Failure is the end stage kidney disease in which kidneys are functioning less than 15%. Since kidneys fail to cleanse the blood and maintain the stable internal environment, a series of symptoms and complications may occur one by one. Today, we are here to introduce the top 5 symptoms of Stage 5 Chronic Kidney Failure.

The first one is fatigue

Kidneys are excretory organs that are responsible for eliminating waste products and toxin and secreting EPO to stimulate the body to produce red blood cells. In stage 5 kidney failure, kidneys are unable to remove harmful substances and stimulate kidneys to produce enough EPO. Then, fatigue and weakness occurs easily.

The second one is hypertension

High blood pressure is one of the most common symptoms of stage 5 kidney failure. In turn, high blood pressure can speed up the progression of kidney failure. Then, patients should take some medicines to manage their high blood pressure.

The third one is hematuria and proteinuria

In stage 5, kidneys are unable to keep useful nutritions and substances in the body, so red blood cells and protein are more likely to leak from the body to urine. Then, you can find your urine becomes foamy and red.

The forth one is swelling or edema

As kidneys lose their ability to remove extra fluid, fluid and sodium will retain in some parts of the body especially in face, ankles, legs, hands or abdomen. In severe cases, swelling may also cause shortness of breath, lung edema, and so on.

The fifth one is skin itching

As kidneys fail to eliminate extra phosphorus from the body efficiently, accumulation of phosphorus will cause skin itching easily.
