Other symptoms: Usually related to overhyddration, but more frequent urination, or in greater amounts than usual, with pale urine as well as urinating at night can mean early kidney failure. Can feel otherwise normal. If have these additional symptoms, should consult physician for blood tests to assess renal function if continues. Then sometimes imaging, ultrasound of kidneys.
