No waste removal: Kidney failure means your kidneys don't filter and remove salt, fluids, and waste products. They will accumulate in the body. Early changes can be excess fluid (edema) swelling, hard to breathe, high blood pressure, headache, decreased urine output, funny taste, weak and tired, and many other symptoms.
