Chronic Kidney Disease

Comprehensive Chronic Kidney Disease Support

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a progressive condition marked by the gradual loss of kidney function over time. As the kidneys become less efficient at filtering waste products and excess fluids from the blood, individuals may experience symptoms such as fatigue, fluid retention, changes in urination patterns, high blood pressure, and nausea. CKD is often caused by underlying conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, and autoimmune diseases. Management strategies aim to slow the progression of kidney damage through lifestyle changes, medication, and, in advanced stages, dialysis or kidney transplant. Early detection and intervention are crucial in mitigating complications and preserving kidney function, highlighting the importance of regular monitoring and collaboration with healthcare professionals. 

Understanding Chronic Kidney Disease Symptoms


Persistent tiredness or lack of energy, even after adequate rest, can be a symptom of kidney disease.

Fluid Retention

Swelling in the legs, ankles, feet, or around the eyes may occur due to fluid retention caused by impaired kidney function.

Changes in Urination

Changes in urination patterns, such as increased frequency, decreased urine output, foamy or bubbly urine, or urine that is dark or tea-colored, can be signs of kidney dysfunction.

Nausea and Vomiting

Nausea, vomiting, and loss of appetite may occur as waste products build up in the bloodstream and affect digestion.

Shortness of Breath

Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath, particularly during physical activity or while lying down, can occur due to fluid buildup in the lungs.

High Blood Pressure

Hypertension, or elevated blood pressure readings, is a common complication of CKD and may not present with noticeable symptoms.

Itching and Skin Rash

Persistent itching, dry skin, or a metallic taste in the mouth may occur due to the buildup of waste products in the blood.
