Hyperkalemia and Metabolic Acidosis in ESRD

2014-03-17 09:19

Hyperkalemia and metabolic acidosis are two serious complications of ESRD and also significant causes for starting a dialysis treatment. What are the causes of these two conditions?

Hyperkalemia in ESRD

Hyperkalemia is a condition with too much potassium in blood. Potassium plays a vital role in keeping the heart and other muscles work properly. If the level of potassium in blood is too high, it can be very dangerous and even cause heart failure.

Kidneys can filter extra potassium from the blood. In ESRD, as the kidneys are damaged seriously, they cannot filter extra potassium from the blood or remove it from the body, thus leading to hyperkalemia.

Metabolic acidosis in ESRD

Metabolic acidosis is a clinical disturbance featured with an increase in plasma acidity. Healthy kidneys can filter the acid from what we eat. However, in ESRD, the kidneys become unable to excrete the daily dietary acid load. This condition can be very dangerous and even fetal.

If the patients with ESRD have metabolic acidosis and hyperkalemia, dialysis will be prescribed soon. Otherwise, they may suffer from sudden death.

How to manage hyperkalemia and metabolic acidosis in ESRD?

While some measures are commonly used to control hyperkalemia and metabolic acidosis in ESRD, they only can relieve them, but can not control the underlying causes.

To control these two conditions fundamentally, the patients should have a treatment to restore the impaired kidney structure and enhance renal function. If the kidneys can function more efficiently, the unwanted minerals will be filtered out of body by them. However, there is no an effective treatment in conservative treatment.

To attain the above treatment goal, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy will be an effective treatment for ESRD. This treatment can control ESRD and the associated complications by repairing the impaired kidney tissues and cells fundamentally. More importantly, the patients will avoid the onset of Dialysis and Kidney Transplant.
