Can CKD Stage 4 Patients Have Irregular Menstruation

2015-10-30 03:07

Can CKD Stage 4 Patients Have Irregular MenstruationCan chronic kidney disease (CKD) stage 4 patients have irregular menstruation? When a woman has chronic kidney disease, her periods tend to be irregular. How does this happen? In this article, you will find the answer.

Several causes can result in irregular menstruation:

1. Uremic toxins

As kidney function drops, the body retains a higher level of waste products than it would with a normal kidney, which can prevent egg production and affect menstruation.

2. Hormonal changes

Hormone changes in normal menstruation involve an increase in the level of a hormone called PSH which peaks at around ovulation, after which another hormone called LH regulates the changes in the remaining part of the cycle. These series of changes in hormone levels can go haywire in advanced CKD, resulting in abnormal menstruation.

3. Decreased libido

In advanced stages of kidney disease, women could experience a subjective decrease in libido due to the hormonal changes and fatigue. Besides, we know that patients with kidney disease have a much higher risk of being depression, which can affect libido directly as well.

How to treat irregular menstruation in CKD stage 4 patients?

1. Erythropoietin treatment

This can improve hormone level and ease anemia, so it can increase patients’ fertility and normalize their menstrual cycle to some extent.

2. Blood Pollution Therapy

This therapy can cleanse the internal environment and discharge some wastes from the blood. At the same time, it also helps improve patients’ kidney condition and reverse kidney damage.

3. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is a herbal-based treatment and helps repair injured kidneys and improve kidney function. When kidney function is improved, wastes will be discharged out of the body. Hormonal changes and decreased libido will be regulated. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy treats irregular menstruation from the root.
