1-You notice swelling of certain parts of your body
If your kidneys are damaged, they will not be able to perform their function properly and will fail to remove excess fluid in your body, which will result in swelling of certain parts of your body such as hands, feet, legs, ankles or face. If you notice swelling of one or more of these parts, it may be due to kidney failure.
2-You notice changes in urination and urine
Changes in your urine habits or in your urine itself may also indicate kidney failure. Here are some changes you should be careful about:
– Difficulty urinating and feeling of pressure during urination
– A need to urinate frequently, especially in the middle of the night;
– A change in the color, the frequency or the quantity of your urine;
– Foamy urine.
