Three Ways to Help You Protect Kidneys and Avoid UremiaWhat is the purpose of treating kidney disease?

Preventing renal failure, avoiding uremia, and trying to maintain quality of life and living as normal. This is the ultimate goal of treating kidney disease, and all kidney patients and doctors hope for. To achieve this goal, more attention should be paid to the problems encountered in the treatment process.

For most kidney patients, the most terrible is not uremia, but complications that com before uremia. They can speed up uremia and even deprive of your life.

Kidney patients should prevent toxins and treat toxins, and bring the following three complications.

1. To avoid metabolic acidosis and maintain acid-base balance

Kidneys regulate the balance of water, electrolytes, and acid bases. The worse kidney function after kidney tissue damage, the worse the ability to regulate material balance in the body. When the disease develops into kidney failure stage, associated symptoms become obvious, mainly manifested as increased acid substances and decreased alkaline substances. If kidney function can not be restored for long-term, the disease will get worse, and cause metabolic acidosis. In addition to hastening the arrival of uremia, it can also lead to rapid heartbeat, even coma or shock.

To avoid metabolic acidosis, regular examinations should be carried out. If this happens, alkaline treatments such as sodium bicarbonate supplementation can be used to help delay renal progress.

2. To treat hyperkalemia timely

Hyperkalemia is also a common complication in the stage of renal failure, and it also seriously threatens the life safety of patients. The reason why blood potassium level increases is that kidneys can not regulate electrolytes so that too much potassium accumulate in the blood. Electrolyte imbalance will lead to weakness, numbness of limbs, and muscle pain. In severe case, it can threaten cardiovascular system, leading to rapid heart beat, cardiac arrest, or even sudden death.

Therefore, to prevent uremia and maintain long-term stability of renal function, blood potassium must be stable. To prevent and treat hyperkalemia, two aspects should be achieved: one is to monitor the data of electrolyte regularly and observe the indicators of potassium. The other one is to take timely medicines to reduce blood potassium, such as diuretics. Also, improve your diet, avoid foods high in potassium, and avoid the misuse of herbal medicines to prevent more potassium.

3. The more stable the blood pressure, the more stable the renal function

Hypertension is the key index of treating nephropathy and protecting renal function. The harm of hypertension to renal function is direct. The increase of blood pressure will lead to blood flow disorder in the kidneys and increased renal pressure, which will lead to glomerular sclerosis and renal ischemia and hypoxia, all of which are adverse to renal function.

Timely treatment to maintain stable blood pressure is particularly important for delaying renal function and to avoid uremia. To reduce blood pressure, patients should use medicine on time, and cooperate with kidney-protecting medicine and protein-lowering drugs to achieve better blood pressure lowering effect. Second, we should adhere to a low-salt and low-fat diet, which can help lower blood pressure and reduce the burden on the kidneys. Third, to measure blood pressure regularly so as to prevent the aggravation of the disease and other complications such as cardiovascular disease.

In addition, you should pay attention to the prevention of anemia, renal bone disease, and hyperphosphatemia. The fewer complications, the more helpful to avoid uremia.
