Symptoms Of Chronic Kidney Disease In Men And Women

According to "Healthline", Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a condition that affects the kidneys' ability to filter waste and excess fluids from the blood. This can lead to a buildup of toxins in the body, which can cause a range of symptoms. While some people with CKD may not experience any symptoms at first, the condition can progress and become more severe over time. Below are some of the symptoms you should not ignore.


Feeling tired or lethargic is a common symptom of CKD. This is because the kidneys play a key role in producing a hormone called erythropoietin, which stimulates the production of red blood cells. When the kidneys are damaged, they may not be able to produce enough erythropoietin, leading to anemia and fatigue.

Urinary changes

Changes in urination are common sympsymptomsCKD. This can include frequent urination, especially at night, or a decrease in urine output. Urine may also appear foamy or contain blood.

High blood pressure

Chronic kidney disease can cause high blood pressure, which can further damage the kidneys and lead to other health problems.

Nausea and vomiting

CKD can cause nausea and vomiting, which can be a result of toxins building up in the body.

Loss of appetite

CKD can cause a loss of appetite, which can lead to weight loss and malnutrition.


Itching is a common symptom of CKD, which is caused by a buildup of toxins in the body.

Shortness of breath

Chronic kidney disease can cause shortness of breath, which can be a result of fluid buildup in the lungs or anemia.

Muscle cramps

Muscle cramps, especially in the legs, are a common symptom of CKD, which is caused by an imbalance of electrolytes in the body.
