End-stage renal failure is a permanent stage of chronic kidney disease. People who suffer from this disease must receive dialysis or kidney transplantation to survive for a more extended period.
As this disease is a severe health problem, it’s essential that you visit your doctor as soon as you notice the following 3 symptoms. Even if you don’t believe you may have a problem with your kidney, the best option is to visit a specialist.
3 signs that you need to visit an End-Stage Renal Disease Specialist
#1. Nausea and Vomiting
One of the first signs that your kidneys are starting to fail is having nausea and vomiting. The worst part is that people confuse those symptoms with other more common diseases.
Reduced appetite and gastrointestinal symptoms are common among patients who suffer from End-Stage Renal Disease. Commonly, this leads to protein energy-wasting, malnutrition, and other outcomes.
#2. Sleep problems
Usually, people that are starting to have the symptoms of End-Stage Renal disease have sleeping issues. Those people can’t sleep as well as they should. Sleep deprivation is a symptom that goes underestimated because it’s associated with other types of illnesses.
#3. High blood pressure and shortness of breath
Shortness of breath can be caused by fluid building up in the lungs. The same happens with having high blood pressure issues. Moreover, as those symptoms are not that common – and most of the time, they’re associated with critical issues – you need to visit a doctor immediately.
