What are the symptoms of chronic renal failure?

Chronic kidney disease is a condition that gradually becomes worse over time. The signs and symptoms associated with the condition may not become apparent until irreversible damage to the kidneys has occurred. This is because your kidneys are highly adaptable and can work harder to compensate for the condition. Some signs and symptoms can include: generally feeling unwell; tiredness and lethargy; changes in urine (color, blood or pus); loss of appetite; nausea and vomiting; muscle twitches or cramps, and; dry and itchy skin.
