The client appears fatigued-2. peripheral edema-3. indications of pruritis-4. crackles at the bases of the lungs -a distended bladder - is not a finding specifically associated with renal disease. it may be seen in individuals who need to void and perhaps are unable to do so. the client appears fatigued - clients with chronic kidney disorders frequently look tired and experience fatigue. peripheral edema - individuals with kidney disease may exhibit signs of circulatory overload (pulmonary edema) or peripheral edema (puffy face, fingers, lower extremities) indications of pruritus - itching is present in individuals with kidney disease as well as mental confusion from elevated nitrogenous wastes. crackles present in the lung bases - signs of circulatory overload such as crackles in the lung fields, or pulmonary edema may be present in individuals with kidney disease.
