In brief: Protein, sugar, bp

Symptoms- you may not have any symptoms in early kidney disease- get your urine checked for protein, as this is the earliest sign of kidney disease.
Late stages of kidney disease- some of the common symptoms are swelling of the feet, shortness of breath, fatigue, poor appetite.This list is not complete.Prevention- control diabetes, check for high bp, check with your doctor before starting any med.
