How does ESRD manifest itself visually and diagnostically in a patient? I would start there.

I agree with the above.

Diagnostic-Labs

Patient history- Lifestyle, conditions such as HTN, DM, taking any nephrotoxic drugs?

Subjective Data- what patient tells you

Objective Data- What you see, hear, feel, touch.
