1. Foamy Urine/Bubbly Urine
Foamy urine or bubbly urine is the clinical manifestation of
proteinuria which is a dominant symptom of ESRD. Normally, the protein
output should be no more than 150mg within 24 hours, but for ESRD
patients, there are usually more than 150mg of protein in urine.
2. High Blood Pressure
In many cases, persistent high blood pressure is the cause for patients
to suffer from kidney failure. And in turn, it also can occur as a
symptom of ESRD.
3. Blood Urine
Blood urine is clinically called hematuria and it is the consequence of
excess red blood cells leak into urine. In cases of ESRD, hematuria can
be microscopic or gross.
4. Decreased urine output And Anuria
Decreased urine output is another symptom of ESRD in women and it
occurs when kidneys fail to filter blood and discharge wastes and excess
fluid. If illness condition is serious enough, anuria occurs.
5. Nausea and Vomiting
Nausea and vomiting are the most common digestive symptoms of ESRD in women. In severer cases, patients may also vomit blood.
6. Itching Skin/Pruritic Skin
For women with ESRD, their kidneys can not excrete excess urea
nitrogen, leading to high blood urea nitrogen. And this can cause
itching feeling directly.
7. Fluid retention
Fluid retention is another visible symptom for women with ESRD. With
fluid retention, patients usually need to limit salt and fluid intake.

Women with ESRD may realize they become tired more easily with ESRD and this may result from many conditions like renal anemia.
Amenorrhea may also happen among women with ESRD.
10. Sleep problem
Sleep problem is another symptom of ESRD and insomnia is the most common sleep problem for women with ESRD.
