What are the symptoms of acute kidney failure?

Symptoms of acute kidney failure often depend on how bad the loss of kidney function is, how quickly it is lost, and on the underlying condition. Symptoms may include:

  • Fever;
  • Weakness and fatigue;
  • No urine output or high urine output;
  • Diarrhea or bloody diarrhea;
  • Severe vomiting;
  • Abdominal pain;
  • Back pain;
  • Rash;
  • Muscle cramps;
  • Pale skin;
  • Nosebleeds;
  • Swelling of the tissues;

90% of acute renal failure patients have typical signs and symptoms, which makes it easier for medical teams to make a diagnosis and start saving kidney function as soon as possible.
