The Five Most Dangerous Complications of Kidney Disease
In fact, for patients with kidney disease, simple kidney disease is not dangerous, even if renal function is completely lost, they can rely on artificial alternative treatment to maintain life.

The pathogenesis of kidney disease is extremely complex, and a series of complications may occur later. These are the real dangers!

1. Renal hypertension

Renal hypertension will unconsciously shorten the life span of patients with renal disease and worsen their renal function.

And the risk of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular disease increases with age, and even increases the risk of sudden death.

Therefore, hypertension is the most important complication for kidney patients.

For kidney patients in early stage of kidney disease or whose blood pressure has not obvious changes, early prevention should be taken. For patients who have taken anti-hypertensive drugs, please follow doctor’s advice and do not stop or change the medicine without getting the permission.

2. Hyperkalemia

It occurs frequently in patients with renal failure and uremia. Due to the abnormal renal filtration function in kidney patients, a large amount of potassium ions accumulate in the body and cannot be excreted, leading to hyperkalemia.

When blood potassium is too high, the heart's excitability and nerve conduction are inhibited. In severe cases, it can lead to cardiac arrest or respiratory arrest.

3. Peritoneal infection

The patient of peritoneal dialysis has low immunity, and the probability of secondary peritoneal infection is higher. Therefore, in the process of peritoneal dialysis, medical staff need to closely watch.

In addition to peritoneal infections, other infections are also dangerous, and people with kidney disease can greatly reduce their risk of infection by strengthening their own care.

4. Heart failure

There are many causes of heart failure: hypertension, anemia, electrolyte disturbance, arteriovenous fistula on dialysis, and the accumulation of toxins.

Heart failure is also the most dangerous for uremia patients and can directly lead to sudden death.

5. Myocardial infarction

Kidney disease slowly causes a complex series of blood problems that can easily affect the heart. For patients with serious conditions, especially dialysis patients, attention should be paid to coronary heart disease, myocardial infarction and other heart problems.

These kinds of complications are dangerous, but it is easy to avoid if you can strengthen your own care and pay attention at an early stage. For more information on kidney disease prevention and treatment, please leave a message below or contact online doctor.
