Is The Calcium Level Low In Renal Failure PatientsIs the calcium level low in renal failure patients? Most kidney failure patients experience bone problems, such as bone pain or bone fracture. These diseases are often associated with low calcium level in body. Well, how does kidney failure cause low calcium level?

Causes of low calcium level in renal failure patients

Our human body performs a delicate balancing act to maintain normal levels of calcium, phosphorus and other minerals in the blood. The kidneys play an important role in this balancing act, as they filter excess minerals from the circulatory system. However, once you get kidney failure, kidney’s filtering ability declines, resulting in low or high levels of some substances. Low calcium is also called hypocalcemia. The reason of low calcium levels in kidney failure patients is that the kidneys excrete too much calcium, resulting in lower calcium levels. Damaged kidneys also have difficulty in maintaining a normal amount of phosphorus in the blood. Phosphorus levels often get high in kidney disease. In this condition, calcium levels also decreases. In addition, low calcium level in people with kidney failure is low ability to form vitamin D-3. Vitamin D aids in the absorption of calcium, so reduced absorption leads to less calcium in the bloodstream.

Effects of low calcium level

Kidney failure patients are possible to experience low calcium levels. And low calcium level is very dangerous because it can cause seizure, emotional problems, muscle spasms, congestive heart failure and muscle stiffness, cognitive dysfunction, increased urinary frequency, high blood pressure, muscle weakness and calcification of the blood vessels.

How to treat low calcium level naturally?

From the above, we can see the root cause of low calcium level is damaged kidneys and declined filtering ability. Therefore, the key point for low calcium level is to repair damaged kidneys and improve kidney function. In Shi Jiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital, we use traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) to repair injured kidneys. In TCM, there are many therapies to help you restore kidneys, such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Enema Therapy and Mai Kang mixture, etc. All these can remove toxins and wastes from your body, dilate blood vessels, improve blood circulation, preventing inflammation and coagulation, and provide necessary nutrients for damaged kidneys. Gradually kidney damage can be restored to a certain degree. With the increased kidney function, calcium disorder can be balanced.
