Why Patients With CKD Are Prone To Hyperlipidemia

2015-10-16 02:18

Why Patients With CKD Are Prone To HyperlipidemiaWhy patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) are prone to hyperlipidemia? CKD patients often see potassium level presents high in their lab reports. What causes this? Is there any method to lower high potassium level?

1. Potassium and chronic kidney disease

Potassium is a mineral which helps nerves and muscles work well. Normally healthy kidneys will keep the right amount of potassium in your body. If kidneys are not working well, they are not as effective at removing excess potassium from the blood. Also, some medications may also result in excess potassium retention, rather than it being removed in the urine. High potassium in blood is called hyperkalemia. A very high level of potassium is dangerous as it can cause your heart to stop beating.

2. How to prevent potassium levels from getting too high?

Limit or avoid potassium-rich foods

Different foods have very different potassium contents. You may need to avoid or limit foods that are high in potassium. High potassium fruits include avocado, banana, dried fruit, kiwi, mango, oranges, orange juice and prune juice. Vegetables with high potassium include dried bean, peas, pumpkin, tomato, spinach and sweet potatoes. Dairy includes milk, yogurt and ice cream. Cooking methods can affect the potassium content in some foods. You can reduce the amount of potassium in root vegetables by boiling them in large amounts of water.

Improve kidney function

To lower high potassium level, the root method is to improve kidney function. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is recommended to you. This therapy is based on traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) but used externally. Two medicated bags filled with processed herbs are placed on patients’ kidney area. With the help of osmosis device, the active ingredients can come to kidney lesion directly and have the functions of repairing damaged kidneys tissues and improve kidney function. When kidney function is improved, excess potassium can be discharged out of the body. Hence high potassium level can be lowered effectively and radically.
