Metabolic Acidosis in Hypertensive Nephropathy

2014-04-22 01:35| Font Size A A A

Metabolic Acidosis in Hypertensive NephropathyIn Hypertensive Nephropathy, the kidneys are unable to keep the acid- base balance, so some of the patients can be afflicted by metabolic acidosis.

In early stage of metabolic acidosis, patients may suffer the following symptoms:


• Confusion

• Shortness of breath

• Sleepiness

• Headache

• Lack of appetite

Only these symptoms are not enough to make a definite diagnosis. Then, some blood tests can be needed.

•Arterial blood gas analysis

It can measure the level of oxygen, carbon dioxide and PH.

•Basic metabolic panel

It checks patients’ kidney functioning and PH balance. It also measures calcium, protein, blood sugar, and electrolyte levels. If you are a hypertensive nephropathy patient and have the above symptoms, you can email your detailed information to us We can help you make an accurate diagnosis.

In severe case, patients may present some serious symptoms, such as rapid and shallow breathing, low blood pressure, irregular heart beat or shock. Severe metabolic acidosis can be life-threatening, so patients should take it seriously. The following are some treatments for metabolic acidosis.

1. Some alkaline drugs can neutralize the acidic metabolites, so they are often used to correct the acid-base balance.

2. For serious condition, patients need dialysis to help them remove the acidic metabolites.

3. However, the above treatments only treat the symptom but not the underlying cause---kidney damage. Treatments, such as Blood Pollution Therapy and Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, which can help restore the kidney damage, are complete solutions for this symptom.

In addition, hypertensive nephropathy patients should be cautious of these factors:


•Drinking alcohol

•Eating a high-fat, low-carbohydrate diet

All these cases can increase the acidic metabolites, aggravating the condition.

If hypertensive nephropathy patients can detect metabolic acidosis early and take positive treatment, their condition will be under control. Any help, you can contact our online doctors for help.
