The breakdown on chronic kidney disease.

In its early stages, chronic kidney disease often goes unnoticed with little to no symptoms. And that can be pretty unnerving. That's why, as CKD advances into later stages, it's important to stay on top of these warning signs:

  • Swollen ankles, feet, or hands
  • Shortness of breath
  • Fatigue
  • Blood in your urine
  • Weight loss or loss of appetite
  • Constantly feeling sick
  • High blood pressure that's difficult to control
