As a result, oliguria and anuria will occur. This kind of symptom is very serious and life-threatening. Therefore, you must pay attention to your condition and take immediate measure to stop or delay it.

    It is caused by high level of phosphorus in blood. In ESRD, the kidneys can not keep the electrolyte balance. In addition, if patients are on dialysis, skin itching will also occur because patients may be allergic to the dialysis machine.


    Actually, fatigue is always associated with anemia. Along with decline of kidney function, the kidneys can not promote the production of EPO (erythropoietin) which are in charge of producing red blood cells for the body needs. And less of red blood cells can lead to anemia. Furthermore, fatigue is also a performance of anemia.
