Our kidneys are responsible for filtering excess fluids and waste products from our blood. This waste is then eliminated in our urine. Chronic kidney failure refers to the loss of kidney function over months or years. In advanced stages, dangerous levels of wastes and fluids back up in our body. This condition is also called chronic kidney disease.
Symptoms of Chronic Kidney Failure
In the early stages of chronic kidney failure,there may or may not have symptoms. Many of the early signs of kidney failure can be confused with other illnesses and conditions. This makes diagnosis difficult.
