    Symptoms of Patients with Stage 5 CKD

    2014-03-05 15:01| Font Size A A A

    In clinical, CKD can be divided into five stages according to patients’ GFR level. Stage 5 CKD, also called End Stage Renal Disease, is the most severe stage of kidney disease. In this stage, almost all of the kidney function can disappear and as a result you may experience a wide range of clinical symptoms including:

    Lower or no urine output

    As we all know that kidneys play an important role in producing urine. However, in stage 5 CKD patients, their kidneys are seriously damaged and cannot remove excessive water as normal. Over time, more and more fluid will accumulate in body and lead to water retention in body. In severe case, patients even have no urine output.

    Dry or itching skin

    Kidney disease can affect many body systems. For the patients with stage 5 CKD, dry skin or itching skin are very common. This is because the accumulated wastes and toxins especially phosphorus affect the skin system and cause disorder.


    Fatigue is a common manifestation of anemia. Normally, the kidneys can secrete a kind of hormone named erythropoietin that can promote the production of red blood cells. And then the red blood cells can send oxygen to everywhere in body. If the kidneys are damaged, the oxygen production will be limited. As a result, anemia will be likely to happen and manifest with fatigue.

    Shortness of breath

    Shortness of breath is one of the most serious signs of the patients, which in severe case may lead to death to patients.
