What Causes Less Urine in CKD Stage 5

2014-08-21 02:21

What Causes Less Urine in CKD Stage 5Stage 5 is the last stage of CKD (Chronic Kidney Disease) which always cause many physical discomforts like skin itching, vomiting and diarrhea. Some patients may find they urinate less than before when their illness develops to this stage. Why is this? What causes less urine in CKD stage 5?

Why do some patients urinate less with CKD stage 5?

CKD stage 5 is also called end stage kidney failure in some area. In such a case, kidneys have been severely damaged and they can not help to maintain the normal life any more, so patients are always suggested to do dialysis or kidney transplant to prolong life span.

Kidney is such an important organ that we can not live normally when they fail to function as well as before. One of the major jobs of kidney is to filter blood. During this process, excess fluids and some wastes in blood are removed out of the body as urine. Urine is lesser and lesser when kidneys filter less blood. In more severe cases, patients may experience anuria which is diagnosed when urine output is lesser than 100ml within 24 hours.

Urine output means a lot for CKD stage 5 patients?

Kidney is responsible for the production of urine, so urine changes are the most common clinical manifestation of CKD. Urine output means a lot for CKD stage 5 patients. For patients who have no urine output, it means their kidneys can not filter blood any more. Under such a condition, dialysis and kidney transplant are the last two life-sustaining methods. However, for these who still have urine output, it means they have some healthy kidney function and their kidneys still can filter some blood. In such a case, it is possible to regain some kidney function.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is a herbal treatment that have been proven to be able to improve kidney function, but so far it is only available for patients who still have some urine output. For these who do not urinate for some time, it shows less treatment effects. Therefore, if you are a CKD stage 5 patient and so far still have some urine output, I suggest you to seize your last chance to get your kidney function improved, which will help you get your urine output increased. Otherwise, dialysis or kidney transplant is the only way to live longer.
