Why Does Renal Failure Cause High Blood Potassium
Why renal failure patients experience high blood potassium, how to treat hyperkalemia and kidney failure? In this article, we will take about the issue.
Hyperkalemia refers to potassium level is higher than 5.5mmol/l in blood. Usually, kidneys can regulate the balance of K+, which can be controlled within a normal range. However, once kidneys are damaged, especially in renal failure, nearly all the renal function has lost, in this case, kidneys fail to discharge excessive potassium, so, potassium will accumulate within kidneys.
The harms of high blood potassium are included:
It can cause the sudden stopping of heart beat, metabolic acidosis, extreme fatigue, muscle pains, feeling cold, paleness. It also can damage to the heart, respiratory muscles and other tissues or organs.
In addition, when the serum potassium level is much higher than 7mmol/l, renal failure patients may have the risk of suffocation. However, in the early stage, hyperkalemia has no obvious symptoms, so, when patients begin to present a series of severe symptoms, the potassium level may be quite high. So, renal failure patients should take regular physical examination to check up your potassium level and avoid death.
Well, how to treat hyperkalemia effectively with renal failure?
The underlying cause of high blood potassium is the decline of kidney function. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is an effective method that can improve renal function from the root. By dilating blood vessels, anti-inflammation, anti-coagulation, degradation and preventing the formation of thrombus, kidney function can be improved effectively. Once kidneys begin to work as normal, high blood potassium can be reduced, in this way, renal failure can be relieved.
Besides, the method is used externally, it is painless and comfortable. During the course, patients can lie on the bed and listen to the music.
