How do you know if you're experiencing kidney failure?

See below: A very low urine volume less than 400 ml/day , but generally speaking a blood test with an elevated creatinine level and a low calculated gfr, informs you that the kidney is not capable of getting rid of all the waste and you may still pass urine, however the kidneyis not all eliminating the waste . This is called uremia.
