How Does Kidney Failure Make Skin DryKidney failure can cause a series of symptoms like digestive system problems, skin problem and nervous system. Well, how does kidney failure make skin dry?

What is the cause of dry skin in kidney failure?

Kidney disorders can lead to chronic dehydration. When the body loses more fluid than it takes in, dehydration occurs. This chronic dehydration leads to dry skin. Kidney failure also inhibits the oil-producing glands of the skin. Without the proper amount of oil, the skin becomes dry.

What will happen with dry skin?

Dry skin caused by kidney failure can lead to itching, discomfort and sometimes flaking. As kidney disease progresses, a build up of wastes in the blood makes the itching worse.

What is the treatment for dry skin in kidney failure?

Staying hydrated and using moisturizers can help alleviate dry skin in kidney failure. Besides, doctors sometimes prescribe antihistamines such as diphenhydramine, dimenhydrinate and doxylamine to relieve the itching. Because a build up of phosphorus in the blood can aggravate itchy skin, some doctors prescribe phosphate binders. These drugs bind to phosphate molecules and remove them from the body.

In addition, because the damaged kidney is the root cause of dry skin, repairing kidney damage is the fundamental solution. To repair kidney damage, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can help achieve this goal. This therapy is an external application based on traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). The super-finely Chinese medicines can be permeated into kidney lesion directly with the action of osmosis device and penetrant fluid. With properties of dilating blood vessels, preventing inflammation and coagulation, degrading extracellular matrix, improving blood microcirculation and improving blood flow, this therapy can repair injured kidney tissues and improve kidney function gradually. When kidney function is improved, dry skin can be alleviated from the root. If you want to learn more information about our Osmotherapy, you can leave us a message to kidneycares@hotmail.com.
