What Are Consequences of Kidney FailureKidney Failure cannot be cured totally at present, and patients will also develop various symptoms and discomforts along with the progression of illness condition. Well then, what are consequences of renal failure?

To be frank, kidney failure can affect a person’s health in several ways. Some people experience fatigue, some lose their appetite, and some have leg cramps. These problems are caused by waste products that build up in the blood, a condition known as uremia. As we all know, healthy kidneys remove waste products from the blood. When the kidneys remove waste products from the blood, while the kidneys stop working, uremia occurs.

Effects on the blood

In addition to uremia, kidney failure can also cause anemia, a condition in which the red blood cells are fewer or smaller than normal, which means less oxygen is carried to the body’s cells. Anemia can cause extreme fatigue and can worsen existing heart problems.

The effect of kidney failure on the bones

When kidneys are unable to clear phosphorus from the blood, calcium is draw from the bones.

The effect of renal failure on the brain and nervous system

When kidneys fail to fulfill their function, it affects the brain and nervous system.

Effects on sleep

People who renal failure often have insomnia-trouble getting to sleep and staying asleep. Insomnia and other sleep disorders can worsen a person’s quality of life.

Effects on skin system

Patients often complain that they suffer from itchy skin, dry skin and skin rash and so on. The problem can also be due to the damaged kidneys’ inability to balance the levels of the minerals calcium and phosphorus in the blood.

Through the above analysis, we can see that kidney failure can affect the whole body health. In the condition, patients need to undergo Dialysis or Kidney Transplant, so as to maintain the life. In Beijing Tongshantang Hospital, if patients do have certain urine output, we do use alternative treatment to replace dialysis, like Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Foot Bath and so on.
