Change in urinationThe kidneys make urine, so when they are failing, it's common to see changes such as foamy or bubbly urine, or urine with blood in it. You may also feel a constant pressure to urinate, or have difficulty doing so. The frequency may change-you may have to go more often, in greater amount than usual with a pale color, or go in smaller amounts with a dark colored urine.

SwellingFailing kidneys don't remove extra fluid, which leads to a build-up in your body causing swelling in the legs, ankles, feet, face, and/or hands. Chat with a medical case manager today: healthtravelguides.custhelp.com/ci/documents/detail/2/1005.
FatigueHealthy kidneys make a hormone called erythropoietin that tells your body to make oxygen-carrying red blood cells. As the kidneys fail, they make less erythropoietin. With fewer red blood cells to carry oxygen, your muscles and brain become tired very quickly. This condition is called anemia. If you are in need of a kidney transplant, contact a medical case manager today, 866-978-2573.
Skin Rash/ItchingKidneys remove waste from the bloodstream. When they fail, the buildup of wastes in your blood can cause severe itching.

Metallic Taste in Mouth/Ammonia BreathA buildup of wastes in the blood (called uremia) can make food taste different and cause bad breath. You may also notice that you stop liking to eat meat, or that you are losing weight because you just don't feel like eating. To talk to a medical case manager today, call 866-978-2573.
