If one is to die from renal failure, is the death from that relatively painless or painful compared to other ways to go? Thank you.

Should be painless. Death by renal failure should be a smooth, painless death. One has to be sure his doctor and the nurses are courageous enough to use adequate doses of medications to prevent pain and distress during dying. The hospice can help.
