Can Kidney Disease Affect Your Memory

2013-01-26 16:50

Can Kidney Disease Affect Your MemoryKidney disease can affect the overall health and cause damage to multiple organs and systems throughout the body. It is reported that as kidney function gets worse, the memory and thinking skills will also decline. Therefore, management of kidney disease is important for your both mind and body.

In a five-year study performed by Temple University, the University of Maine and the University of Maryland, it showed that kidney function and mental skill changed together. The more a person’s kidney function decreased over the five years, the more memory and thinking skills were lost. Abstract reasoning and verbal memory were most affected by renal function decline.

Why does kidney disease affect memory?

Healthy kidneys remove extra fluids and wastes from blood. Urea is the byproduct of proteins and is filtered out of body. If kidneys are not functioning well, high levels of urea will accumulate in blood. Urea is toxic to the body and can affect all the major organs including the brain and nervous system. Symptoms usually only appear when kidney function falls to less than 10 percent of normal like memory decline, disorders of thinking, speech, perception etc.

Additionally, memory decline may be also noticed amongest kidney disease patients on dialysis. When wastes is removed from the blood too quickly during dialysis, a net movement of fluid into the brain seems to occur. This is quite rare and can affect brain and nerve system.

The above are the causes of memory problem in kidney disease. However, if aggressive prevention and treatment is done early, it can help manage the issue well. For more information, please consult us on line.
