We can see Coca-Cola or Pepsi-Cola everywhere, would you like a cup of cola if you are thirsty? It is okay for normal people to drink cola, but if you are a renal patient, pay more attention to drink it because of its high phosphorus content. When kidneys are damaged severely, too much phosphorus may build up in the blood to cause some symptoms.
According to the latest study, the amount of phosphorous that a renal patient can take in every day had better be less than 900 mg. Since most foods contain phosphorus ,it is easy for renal patients to take in more than 900 mg of phosphorous every day.
Parathormone and calcitonin control the amount of phosphorous by inhibiting renal tubular resorption of phosphorus. But when patients have renal disease, their kidneys have trouble in removing out phosphorous and meantime, the reabsorption of phosphorus from urine increase, so there will be too much phosphorous in renal patient’s body. In this case, kidney disease patients are more likely to have bone pain, joint pain, bone weakness, skin itching, heart disease, etc.
The normal function of phosphorus needs the maintenance of vitamin D and calcium. If exceed, phosphorous and calcium will combine with each other and form into calcium phosphate. Calcium phosphate will be removed out from out body at last. This will cause the loss of calcium. The loss of calcium will lead to renal osteopathy, and you may have symptoms such as bone pain, pseudogout, pathological fracture, spinal curvature, thoracocyllosis, muscle cramps and so on. Besides, the loss of vitamin D and chronic renal insufficiency may cause secondary hyperparathyroidism. So there are other symptoms like mental disorder, abnormal electroencephalogram, amyotrophy and peripheral neuropathy.
When you have too much phosphorous in your body, you must pay more attention to foods you eat. There are some foods that contain plenty of phosphorous such as organ meats, milk and cheese.
