Breathing Problems in Kidney FailureWhy do some Kidney Failure patients suffer breathing problems? What can they do to alleviate their sufferings? If you want to know these answers, please read on.

In kidney failure, due to kidney damage, patients may have many health problems which may cause breathing problems. We will discuss the three most common reasons as followings:

Heart disease

High blood pressure is a common symptom of kidney failure. Patients are at high risk of heart disease, if hypertension is poorly controlled. If breathing problems are caused by heart disease, they should be cautious of this condition. Heart disease can enormously increases the mortality of patients.

As for the treatment for this condition, patients should better control their blood pressure to prevent further damage to their heart. Their symptom can get alleviated, as their heart disease is controlled.


Breathing problem is a symptom of severe anemia. In kidney failure, patients are susceptible to anemia, due to the following two reasons: shorter life span of red blood cells due to high levels of toxins; kidneys’ inability to produce enough EPO.

For this condition, patients should take some medicines to elevate red blood cell level and take some supplements, such as foods loaded with iron and folic acid.


When too much fluid accumulates in patients’ body, swelling occurs. In severe case, it can cause pulmonary edema or pleural effusion, which can induce breathing problems.

Patients with swelling should limit the salt intake. Some diuretics also can help excrete excess fluid, releasing the symptom.

The underlying cause of these complications is kidney damage. Therefore, the complete solution for this symptom is to restore the kidney damage.

Stem Cell Therapy is a therapy to treat kidney failure and breathing problems, in which stem cells are introduced into kidney to restore kidney lesion. Years of clinic practices have proved that it is effective in treating kidney failure. If you are interested in this therapy, you can contact our online doctors for more information.
