It depends on the type of kidney disease. Give example, if a person has kidney disease stage 2 due to an acute glomerulonephritis, leg edema, foamy urine or bloody urine may be present. However, a person with a stage 2 chronic kidney disease due to hypertension or medication adverse effect may remain asymptomatic.

May not notice: Especially early on, you may not notice anything, and the cause will impact what you see or feel. Common symptoms once advanced can be fatigue, confusion, nausea, itching. Can also see blood in the urine or dark urine, or decreased amount of urine.With significant renal failure, most people feel awful overall!
