Some symptoms of chronic kidney disease are:
- Muscle cramping at night
- Feeling tired and having less energy
- Not wanting to eat
- Swollen feet and ankles
- Having puffy eyes mainly in the morning
- Urinating a lot, mainly at night
- Having a hard time paying attention
CKD does't go away, but we can help you manage it. Just give Member Services a call at (888) 816-2790 Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. PST.
