2014-03-18 15:05

Does Renal Failure Cause Memory LossRecently I was diagnosed with renal kidney and learned that all the toxins in my blood explains why I’ve been forgetting things. I read there may be a link to kidney failure and memory loss. Right? Can someone explain it to me?

The kidneys filter and act as a clearinghouse for eliminating wastes from the blood. Now it appears that the declined kidneys may serve as warning signs for memory loss and slower cognitive processes.

Rush University Medical Center researchers reported that there is a correlation between impaired kidneys and a faster rate of cognitive decline. Then what is the correlation between kidney function decline and memory loss.

1. Anemia

Anemia associated with renal failure means that there is no enough oxygen for your brain. This can lead to memory problems, trouble with concentration and dizziness.

2. High blood pressure

High blood pressure is often a common symptom of kidney failure. Long-term uncontrollable and poor control of high blood pressure can damage arteries. In this case, memory loss or cognitive impairment can result from blocked blood flow to the brain.

3. Damages on brain nervous system

In kidney failure, memory loss can occur due to damages on brain nervous system. Thus, protecting brain nervous system from being damaged by toxins and wastes is vital.

How to relieve memory loss in renal failure?

1. Dialysis

One major cause of memory loss is toxins damaging brain nervous system. For this reason, dialysis is necessary and helpful to remove toxins from the blood. Although it is not a radical solution, dialysis is able to prevent further kidney damages and damages on other organs. Less toxins in the blood can alleviate cognitive problems to some extent.

2. Immunotherapy

Immunotherapy can not only eliminate toxins and wastes from the blood, but also repair kidney damage which is a fundamental therapy for memory loss in renal failure. This is because the active ingredients of Chinese medicines can dilate blood vessels and stimulate blood flow to improve anemia and control blood pressure. More importantly, Chinese medicines can restore damaged kidney tissues and speed up the regeneration of DNA. With the restoration of renal tissues, kidney function can be improved gradually. As the improvement of kidney damage, memory loss can be improved greatly.
