If You Do Not Want to Do Dialysis, You Should Control 4 Points

If You Do Not Want to Do Dialysis, You Should Control 4 PointsSerum creatinine is one of the important indicators of renal function. Generally, in order to understand renal function more intuitively, we judge the stage of kidney disease by the amount of creatinine. When creatinine exceeds 707umol/l, it indicates that renal function has developed to the stage of uremia.

Therefore, many kidney patients attach great importance to the changes of serum creatinine, and seek treatment everywhere to reduce creatinine. But if you really want to lower creatinine level, you should maintain your renal function. Never put the cart before the horse.

To delay the development of kidney function and avoid the fibrosis and sclerosis of kidney, the most important thing is to control the factors that aggravate renal failure.

1. Do not ignore the harm of high blood potassium level

Abnormal renal function will lead to electrolyte disorder, and potassium cannot be discharged from body smoothly so it accumulates, leading to hyperkalemia. I think you have heard the harm of hyperkalemia before. It can accelerate heart rate. In serious case, it can even cause heart arrest or sudden death circumstance. And it can also cause limb numbness.

Therefore, if your blood potassium level is higher than 5 mmol/L, you should control it timely, in case that it speeds up kidney function impairment and lead to heart disease and other complications.

2. High blood pressure puts extra stress on kidneys

High blood pressure and kidney disease are closely related. Kidney damage leads to sodium and water metabolism disorder, which causes hypertension. And hypertension in turn accelerates glomerular sclerosis and renal fibrosis, forming a vicious cycle. Usually, the symptoms of hypertension will appear in the 3rd stage of kidney disease. In order to avoid damaging the renal function, you should monitor blood pressure, take antihypertensive drugs on time, and pay attention to the low-salt diet.

Note: Blood pressure below 130/80 has little effect on the progression of kidney function.

3. Anemia weakens immunity

In addition to detoxification, the kidney also has an "indirect hematopoietic" function, because it can produce erythropoietin, a hormone that stimulates bone marrow to make red blood cells. But when kidney tissues such as the glomerulus and tubules are damaged, kidney function declines and erythropoietin production decreases, leading to anemia.

Anaemia not only aggravates kidney ischemia, but also leads to fatigue, weakened immunity and increased vulnerability to disease.

Therefore, you should pay attention to your hemoglobin level when you do urine tests. In the daily, eat some foods to supplement blood. It is better to prevent anemia in advance.

4. Metabolic acidosis aggravates kidney disease.

Metabolic acidosis is also one of the symptoms of advanced kidney disease. When kidney function is impaired, the ability to regulate the balance of acid and alkali is decreased, and the accumulation of toxin often leads to the increase of acidic substances and the decrease of alkaline substances in the body. Therefore, once the renal insufficiency is reached, attention should be paid to the monitoring of acid and alkali in the body.

If metabolic acidosis has occurred, you can supplement alkaline treatments such as sodium bicarbonate to delay the progression of renal function.
