How to Manage Hyperphosphatemia in Kidney FailureHow to manage hyperphosphatemia in kidney failure? Are you looking for related info? How about the result? If you still have no good idea, please read this passage and the following contents are expected to be helpful.

Hyperphosphatemia is a kind of electrolyte disturbance in which there is an abnormal elevated level of phosphate in the blood. And it is always accompanied with kidney failure. What’s more, calcium levels are lowered (hypocalcemia) due to precipitation of phosphate with the calcoum in tissues. And average phosphate levels should be between 0.81mmol/L and 1.45mmol/L. Once your phosphate level beyonds this range, hyperphosphatemia is diagnosed. Well then, only know how it occurs in Kidney Failure, can we find out the management methods.

How does hyperphosphatemia occur in kidney failure?

As we all know, one of kidney functions is in charge of maintaining the electrolyte balance. However, for kidney failure patients, their kidneys are damaged and the kidneys can not do this jobe well. As a result, a large amount of phosphate will build up in the body, leading to hyperphosphatemia.

In addition, it is related to hypoparathyroidism. In this condition, there are low levels of parathyroid hormone (PTH), which normally inhibits renal reabsorption of phosphate. Therefore, if there is no enough PTH, high levels of phosphate will occur.

How to manage hyperphosphatemia in kidney failure?

1. Limit intake of phosphate

Keep away high phosphate food from your table, like all-bran cereal, almonds, beef, brazil nuts, cashew nuts, cheese, chicken, dried fruit, egg, garlic, halibut fish hard potatoes and herring and so on.

2. Take phosphate binders

If phosphate level is much higher than the normal range, you may as well try to take phosphate binders.

3. Intake of calcium

Try to take more food with calcium so as to balance phosphate level and prevent bone problems, like bone pain, bone fracture and osteoporosis.
