How Does Uremia Affect Your MetabolismHow does uremia affect your metabolism? Uremia is a sign of stage four renal insufficiency. At this time, kidneys have been abnormal and failed to discharge metabolic wastes and toxins from the body. Due to the accumulation of toxins and wastes, it will lead to kidney dysfunction and eventually kidney failure will develop to uremia. It will cause serious damages on human body.

Uremia will affect the following metabolism:

1. Blood sugar metabolism disorder

Uremia patients will experience blood sugar metabolism disorder, leading to elevated blood sugar levels. High blood sugar is different from the elevated glucose in diabetes. As we all know, diabetes is caused by deficiency of insulin secretion, while blood sugar elevation in uremia is the result of decreased susceptibility of cells to insulin.

2. Blocked protein metabolism

Uremia patients will also suffer from protein metabolism problem. Protein breaks down amino acid which is required by our human body. A lot of amino acid accumulates in your body but cannot be removed from the body. At this condition, blood urea nitrogen level will rise. Therefore, renal experts recommend that patients must consume proper protein. Of course, dialysis patients can supplement some protein moderately so as to meet your body need.

3. Abnormal fat metabolism

Uremia patients will also experience abnormal fat metabolism, especially for dialysis patients. Fatty acid and triglycerides in blood will be elevated while cholesterol and lecithin level is back to normal.

Metabolism disorder is just one aspect of kidney disease symptom. Once kidneys are damaged, other symptoms will also occur. To alleviate these conditions, we need to restore injured kidneys and improve renal function. Patients can have a try of Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. This therapy focuses on repairing impaired kidney damage and improving renal function. Thus, metabolic disorder can be relieved. Other medical conditions like high blood pressure, anemia, poor appetite and protein in urine can all be alleviated.
