Why Uremia Patients Had Better Not Take Diuretics

2015-08-04 15:48

Why Uremia Patients Had Better Not Take DiureticsUremia is not an independent disease but a group of clinical syndrome. In the end stage of chronic kidney failure, three major kidney functions all fail and cause a series of symptoms and metabolic disorders, forming uremia.

Different patients may have different uremia symptoms. However, no matter hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis only replace kidneys to cleanse metabolic wastes and balance fluid, electrolytes and acid-base while they cannot replace another function of kidney, namely endocrine function like producing EPO and active vitamin D3. Therefore, patients on hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis also need to take EPO and calcitriol. Besides, patients may take diuretics to reduce blood pressure and prevent swelling of the eyelids, arms, hands, ankles, legs and feet.

Patients with mild swelling and no hypertension may require short-term therapy with diuretics. As for those with severe swelling and high blood pressure, they have to take a daily dose of a diuretic drug.

However, severe complications will occur with regular diuretic use. If too much fluid leaves the body, patients may experience dehydration, with symptoms like dry mouth, thirst, tiredness, decreased urine output, headache, muscle weakness and dizziness. Moreover, a large dosage of diuretics will cause a further damage on kidneys and worsen illness condition.

In Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital, we have natural remedies to treat uremia. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is recommended here. This therapy is on the basis of traditional Chinese Medicine but used externally. The active ingredients can come to kidney lesion directly via an osmoscope. Through dilating blood vessels, promoting blood circulation, degrading extracellular matrix, providing necessary nutrients, damaged kidneys can be repaired and kidney function can also be improved greatly. When kidney function is improved, excess fluid will be discharged out of the body and other symptoms can also be alleviated effectively.
