In brief: Decreased Urination

Acute kidney disease represents an attack against the attack usually from profound dehydration, nephrotoxic agents like antibiotics or from bacterial infections.
The symptoms range from decrease in urine output, nausea and loss of appetite. The most critical side effect is rapid increase in potassium that can be very dangerous.
