Acute kidney failure symptoms

Acute kidney injury (AKI) is a sudden episode of kidney failure or kidney damage that happens within a few hours or a few days. AKI causes a build-up of waste products in your blood and makes it hard for your kidneys to keep the right balance of fluid in your body. AKI can also affect other organs such as the brain, heart, and lungs. Acute kidney injury is common in patients who are in the hospital, in intensive care units, and especially in older adults. The following symptoms may occur with acute kidney failure. Some people have no symptoms, at least in the early stages. The symptoms can be very subtle.

  • Decreased urine production
  • Body swelling
  • Problems concentrating
  • Confusion
  • Fatigue
  • Lethargy
  • Nausea, vomiting
  • Diarrhoea
  • Abdominal pain
  • Metallic taste in the mouth
  • Seizures and coma may occur in very severe acute kidney failure.
