2013-08-26 13:43

Heart Attack in Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD)Chronic kidney disease (CKD) refers to progressive loss of renal function. As a result,the kidneys fail to work inefficiently, thus resulting in building up of toxins and wastes in body. Most of the patients with CKD are actually more likely to die of cardiovascular disease like heart attack and stroke than the kidney disease itself.

Causes of heart attack in CKD

-An important risk factor of heart attack in CKD is high blood pressure. As the filters in kidneys are impaired, it will result in excessive accumulation of fluid in body. Excess fluid contributes to higher blood pressure, which can lead to more blood-vessel damage.

Other attributable factors of heart attack in CKD mainly include:

-Anemia is commonly seen CKD.Prolonged anemia can cause the heart to develop a left ventricular hypertrophy.This can lead to congestive heart failure.
