What Are the Symptoms of Kidney Disease in Females?November 18, 2020

However, in case of a kidney failure or other kidney-related diseases the organ loses this essential ability. The waste is not filtered efficiently from the blood, thereby resulting in dysfunctions.

Such symptoms can indicate other health issues as well, but one must be cautious enough to identify these timely.
