Thanks for your question! Sometimes, when renal failure (kidney failure) is in its beginning stages there are no symptoms. However, as it progresses some of the following symptoms may occur:

Fluid retention
Swollen hands and feet, numbness of hands and feet, itchy skin
Fatigue, insomnia
Low urine output (or no urine output in severe cases), frequent urination
Altered consciousness
Loss of appetite, malnutrition
Sores , bad taste in the mouth
Nausea, vomiting
Muscle cramps and twitches
Shortness of breath
High blood pressure
Low temperature
Seizures , coma
Breath smelling like urine
Yellowish-brownish skin tone
