What Is The Cause And Treatment Of High Potassium Level In Kidney FailureWhen you discover that you have early stage kidney disease, one of the minerals to learn about is potassium and how it is affected by kidney disease.

What is the cause of high potassium in kidney failure?

Healthy kidneys maintain a proper level of potassium. Healthy potassium blood levels are between 3.5-5.0mEq/L. However, when you have kidney disease, the kidneys are not as effective at removing excess potassium from the blood. Also some medications may result in excess potassium retention, rather than it being removed in the urine. High blood potassium is called hyperkalemia. A high potassium level can cause nausea, weakness, numbness or tingling, slow pulse, irregular heartbeat and heart failure.

Tips to lower potassium level

-Limit food high in potassium like avocado, bananas, dried fruit, kiwi, mango, oranges and orange juice, papaya and prune juice, pumpkin, potatoes, tomatoes and tomato juice, and so on.

-What medication do you take now? High potassium level may be associated with the medications. If so, change the medications into other ones.

-Water pills can also be used to remove potassium via the urinary tract. But do not use it without the guidance of your doctor.

The fundamental way is to repair the damaged kidneys and improve kidney function. When kidney function is restored, excess potassium can be removed out of the body. In traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), there are many therapies for you, such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated foot bath, Mai Kang Mixture, Circle Therapy, Enema Therapy, Steaming Therapy and Moxibustion, etc. If you want to know detailed information, please send email to kidneycares@hotmail.com or leave a message below.
