How Does Uremia Affect Your Body

2015-08-09 02:10

How Does Uremia Affect Your BodyDialysis patients often suffer from various discomforts caused by toxins. Since most toxins are produced by metabolism, proper life style changes and dietary adjustment can avoid excessive toxic accumulation so as to avoid unnecessary physical discomforts. Well then, how does uremia affect the body?

1. Water retention

Too much water accumulates in the body, forming toxins. Kidneys in dialysis patients cannot discharge excessive fluid so as to cause water retention. Water retention in the body for a long time will cause various symptoms including limb edema, high blood pressure, heart failure, poor appetite, nausea, vomiting, malnutrition, anemia, hydrothorax, ascites and hydropericardium.

2. Hyperphosphatemia

Hyperphosphatemia is an important complication in dialysis patients. Hypocalcemia is always associated with hyperphosphatemia. Dialysis patients may suffer from itchy skin, back pain, joint pain and even bone fracture. Dialysis can lower high phosphorus level in blood quickly but present dialysis cannot remove excessive phosphorus level consumed from diet completely. Prolonging dialysis time or increasing dialysis times can do some help for lowering high phosphorus level. Besides, restricting food with high phosphorus is another important measurement for controlling hyperphosphatemia. High phosphorus foods include nuts, peanut, dairy products, laver, green beans and soft drinks, etc.

3. Hyperkalemia

When kidney function declines, kidneys’ ability to discharge potassium also decreases. Under this condition, hyperkalemia is easy to occur. Patients with hyperkalemia will experience extreme fatigue, muscular soreness, arrhythmia like bradycardia and heart stops.

Generally speaking, sufficient dialysis can control serum potassium concentration. Dietary changes can contribute to lowering high blood potassium to some extent. Dialysis patients should avoid consuming high potassium foods like oranges, bananas, nuts and caraway.
