Why does yellow skin present in kidney failure?

Yellow skin in kidney failure may be caused by pigmentary disorders. Pigmentary changes to the skin are very common in end stage renal disease (ESRD). The spectrum of pigmentary changes ranges from hyperpigmentation to yellowish discolouration and pallor. Hyperpigmentation is often photodistributed and is the result of an increase in melanin in the basal layer of the epidermis. The yellow skin present in kidney failure patients is resulted from lipochrome and carotenoid deposition in the dermis and subcutaneous tissues. Pallor is a consequence of anemia associated with chronic disease and is widespread.

Apart from yellow skin, you will also experience the following skin problems of kidney failure.

Itching is the most common symptom of renal failure. For those with chronic kidney failure, 15-49% experience pruritus or itching. And of those on dialysis, it is up to 50-90%.

For kidney failure patients on dialysis, they often complain their skin becomes dry or roughed due to kidney disease. This makes them tend to get infection as it compromises the normal skin barrier. Also it is hard for them to heal if there are wounds in their skin.
