  • In those without symptoms, mildly increased blood calcium levels, normal kidneys, and normal bone density monitoring may be all that is required. (wikipedia.org)
  • Kidney failure accompanied by noticeable symptoms is termed uraemia. (wikipedia.org)
  • If those two symptoms are accompanied by an ammonia quality on the breath the on-set of kidney failure is a likely culprit. (wikipedia.org)
  • Because uremia is mostly a consequence of kidney failure, its signs and symptoms often occur concomitantly with other signs and symptoms of kidney failure. (wikipedia.org)
  • It is worth noting, however, that may of these symptoms are also indicative of kidney failure and hence may be masked by the patient's condition. (wikipedia.org)
  • blood
  • Low-sodium diet is a good choice for you to prevent water-sodium retention and high blood pressure, which will accelerate the progression to kidney failure. (kidneyfailureweb.com)
