- Bad Taste in Mouth
Many patients who experience issues with their kidneys will complain of a bad taste in their mouth — almost as if they’re drinking iron. As waste builds up in the body, better known as uremia, it can make food taste off and cause bad breath. This ultimately leads to a loss of appetite and many patients begin to lose weight.
As mentioned, if you notice one sign only, such as fatigue or nausea, there’s no reason to become overly alarmed. Pay close attention to your urine and document any changes that occur. The moment you feel as though something isn’t quite right, seek a second opinion. Like any condition, the earlier you intervene, the better.
