Causes of itching skin in Chronic Kidney Disease

1. High phosphorus level but low calcium level.

2. The build up of uremic toxins

3. High PTH

4. Dialysis

The above all can contribute to causing skin itching for patients with chronic kidney disease. Next, we should take the effective treatments, so as to slow down or even relieve the related symptoms.

Diet suggestions:

Since high phosphorus is considered as one of the major cause for kidney failure patients suffer form skin problems. In some cases, dialysis can not remove excess phosphorus out of the blood successfully. In the condition, limiting phosphorus intake will be imperative. Try to maintain a phosphorus level at 5.5 or less. In our daily life, common foods high in phosphorus include cheesem nuts, bacon, flax seeds, roasted soybeans, all-brab cereal, almonds, beef, brazil nits, dried fruits and so on. Patients should keep away from these foods.

Medical Treatments

Actually, the root cause of itching skin is the poor renal function. Therefore, to relieve the itching, it is important to repair kidney damage and improve renal function. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Immunotherapy, and Blood Pollution Therapy can be selected according to your specific condition. As long as kidney function can increase and maintain stable, you can relieve itching without dialysis.
