2013-02-21 16:19

Why Do People with Kidney Disease Suffer Breathing DifficultyBreathing difficulty refers to difficult or uncomfortable breathing or a feeling feeling of not getting enough air. This problem is commonly seen in kidney disease. What are the causes of the problem?

Retention of fluids is a common cause of breathing difficulty in Kidney Failure. As the kidneys are not functioning well, they will not be able to get rid of excess fluids from body, thus resulting in fluid accumulation in the lungs. Thereby, it will cause shortness of breath. Additionally, the increased blood toxicity can affect the oxygen-carrying capacity of the blood, leading to heavy breathing.

Metabolic acidosis

Metabolic acidosis is a condition when the kidneys are not removing enough acid from the body. It can cause deep and rapid breath. Also, the patients can experience coma, arrhythmia, and even shock.

Diabetic ketoacidosis

In Diabetic Nephropathy, breathing difficulty is often caused by diabetic ketoacidosis. Sugar can not be converted to energy that body needs. As a result, the stored fat is decomposed to provide energy for body, which can increase the production of acidic substance in body, thus leading to diabetic ketoacidosis. Consequently, breathing difficulty can occur.

Electrolyte imbalance

Because of the resulting changes to the blood chemistry, the electrolyte balance of the blood and cells is disrupted. Electrolyte imbalance such as high levels of sodium can cause rapid heart beath and breathing difficulty.

If the patients with kidney disease is suffering from breathing difficulty, they should talk with the doctor immediately. It may indicate other more serious problems.
