How can you tell if your kidney has failed? or between a kidney infection and a failure? syptems and...?
I'm not sure what I have. I thought it started out with a kidney infection but it has gotten worse. can you leave the symptoms of each also and how they treat them. Additional Details the symptoms I have are sickness, and pain. I guess now since I'm reading some of the answers, I looked and I do have swelling ankles, but I never paid attention to that before.
Don't panic. Be cool and just visit ur family/local doctor for ur help. He'll certainly help you.

I think the best person to give you the answers you want is your GP. He/ she will be able to run the appropriate tests and you can know for sure, and be treated appropriately. You should never just leave a kidney infection untreated as it could lead to something more serious.
My Mom who had diabetes didn't even know her kidneys had failed and was still taking her insulin and she almost went into a diabetic coma because of it and eventually died from complications so this is something that the doctor has to test for and you need to make sure you keep on top of this please. The doctor said this happens quite often that patients will not even reliaze their kidneys have failed and still be taking their insulin and then slip away into a coma.
Well if you had a kidney infection you would probably collapse if it was that bad considering sadly thats what happened to my mom in the shower I freaked out and called the cops and we went to the hospital and found out she was very dehydrated and had a kidney infection. Honestly I cant give you a opinion on what it is since im not a doctor and have not heard of anything with these symptoms. Also I doubt its kidney failure becanse one thing i would think you would be in a lot of pain not wnating to get up and screaming. i hope this helps I am sry I cant give you the answer but one answer i can give you is to go see a doctor.
My mother's kidney failed and there were no symptoms. Now she has one so must be careful. She was warned to look out for fevers, dark urine, kidney infections, sharp pains, swelling in ankles and around the eyes, jaundice. I hope you're not fooling around with this. See your doctor.
you would definitely know if your kidney failed, you wouldn't be able to walk or probably even type.. you would be in the hosipital in excrutiating pain, if you have an infection you might feel pain in your back as if your back is bruised and blood in your urine and pain while urinating
