What are the diagnostic Tests that might be done?
The early signs of the acute disease are:
Proteinuria: Large amounts of protein in the urine
Hematuria: Blood in the urine
Reduced glomerular filtration rate: Inefficient filtering of wastes from the blood
Hypoproteinemia: Low blood protein
Edema: Swelling in parts of the body
One or more of these symptoms can be the first sign of kidney disease. But how would you know, for example, whether you have proteinuria? Before seeing a doctor, you may not. But some of these symptoms have signs, or visible manifestations.Signs and symptoms of kidney failure include:
• Lack of appetite
• Nausea and vomiting
• Difficulty sleeping
• Dry and itchy skin
• Muscle cramps, especially at night.
