Uremic neuropathy is a distal sensorimotor polyneuropathy caused by uremic toxins. Symptoms are insidious at onset. Paresthesias are usually the earliest symptoms; weakness and atrophy will follow the sensory symptoms. Chronic dialysis may prevent neuropathy in some patients, especially if begun early. Renal transplantation is generally the most successful method to prevent neuropathy.
