What Happens When Kidney Disease Patients Experience Electrolyte Disorder

2015-05-15 01:47

What Happens When Kidney Disease Patients Experience Electrolyte DisorderAs we all know, the main function of kidneys is to purify blood and discharge toxic and harmful substances in blood. Besides, kidneys secrete erythropoietin and make people suffer from anemia.

Another function of kidney is to balance electrolyte and maintain acid-based balance.

Fluid and electrolyte in blood is filtered into crude urine through glomerular and then reabsorbed by renal tubules. At the same time, part of electrolyte will be secreted into lumen. Fluid, electrolyte and acid-base keep balance by way of kidney’s urine concentration and dilution process of kidney so as to maintain homeostasis. This is the reason why kidney disease patients often experience electrolyte disorder.

What will happen with electrolyte disorder?

Generally speaking, patients with electrolyte disorder will have nausea, dizziness, weakness and muscle cramp as well as other symptoms. In severe cases, electrolyte disorder may also cause confusion of consciousness and faint.

Once kidney disease patients experience electrolyte disorder, proper diet can alleviate this condition to some extent. Dialysis may be necessary in severe cases.

However, no matter diet or dialysis you take can only cure the symptoms but not the disease. The key point for electrolyte disorder should recover kidney function. Only electrolyte is regulated by kidneys can achieve electrolyte balance truly.

How to recover kidney function?

In order to recover kidney function, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can be used. This therapy is an external application. The active ingredients can be infiltrated into kidney nidus directly with the help of osmosis device and then repair injured kidney intrinsic cells and improve renal function by way of expanding blood vessels, preventing inflammation and coagulation, degrading extracellular matrix and providing necessary nutrients for damaged kidneys. When kidneys are repaired and renal function is recovered, electrolyte disorder can be regulated.
