Does having kidney failure cause frequent vomiting?

Kidney Failure: Kidney failure with uremia (build up of urine toxins) can result in vomiting, but mild or moderate kidney failure usually does not have any vomiting. When someone is close to end stage renal disease, that is when we expect to see nausea and vomiting. However, acute renal failure can also result in these symptoms.

Nausea and vomiting mostly in morning, sleep a lot, can't eat much, only drink pedialyte, very weak, every muscle aches. Kidney failure? Still urinating.

Possibly: The symptoms of nausea/vomiting, loss of appetite, and fatigue are common in patients with renal failure. Without knowing the full medical history it is difficult to given a full differential diagnosis. Many patients do still make urine when they have early renal failure. Recommend seeing your PCP for blood chemistry and urinalysis.

How will a 23 year old get chronic kidney disease who is not diabetic, when diagnised was having high BP and metalic taste in mouth and vomiting?

Is it real?: Based on a fad for overinterpreting spot creatinine levels, every young man who's well-muscled is now being diagnosed with "chronic kidney disease", much to the chagrin of both the lab medicine and nephrology communities. Demand a proper diagnosis before you get turned into a kidney patient.

Why does kidney failure cause you to get fluid in your lungs?

Why does kidney failure cause you to get fluid in your lungs?

Fluid Status: Kidneys are very important for fluid balance in the body. They filter our toxins and regulate your volume status (how much fluid you have in your body). When they fail the ability to loose water/fluid by way of your urinary system goes away and fluid buildup begins.

Can e.Coli caused kidney failure if untreated?

Can e.Coli caused kidney failure if untreated?

E. coli: The so-called enterohemorrhagic e. Coli is linked to a particular form of kidney disease called hemolytic uremic syndrome. Type o157 is the most common but other o types can also cause this. Anti microbial agents not only do not prevent the kidney complication but clearly are linked to a higher risk of it. However, e.Coli sepsis of other types can cause kidney failure that may be prevented by rx.

My hemoglobin was 7.5 before surgery & my iron less than 10 I went into kidney failure could this have caused it?
