Can Kidney Failure Be Related to Tingling in Hands and Feet

2013-11-14 11:18

Can Kidney Failure Be Related to Tingling in Hands and FeetTingling in hands and feet sometimes is benign and temporary and sometimes is severe and chronic. It is an reflection of nerves. While kidney failure means kidneys fail to work properly to remove the wastes, toxins and electrolytes out of body. Is there any relation between kidney failure and tingling in hands and feet? 

Can kidney failure cause hands and feet tinging?

For patients with kidney failure, electrolytes in the blood become unbalanced.

-If too much potassium in your blood, it is easily for you to get tingling.

-Low sodium constitutes one of the most common electrolyte imbalances. Dehydration can cause low sodium levels. Tingling in the extremities normally begins when a person has lost 5 to 6 percent of their total body fluid. As we all know, dialysis is often used to sustain life for kidney failure patients. Sometimes improper dialysis may take away too much water so as to cause tinging.

-Kidney disease can cause low calcium levels. It is also one of the factors resulting in tingling.

-High levels of phosphate, an electrolyte that helps regulate acid-base balance as well as calcium levels, can also cause tingling in the hands. Medically termed hyperphosphatemia, high phosphate levels can be caused by kidney disease and hemodialysis.

Besides, diuretics or beta-blockers etc,which are often prescribed by doctors for treating kidney disease can also cause tingling.

What should we do with tinging in hands and feet?

First, we should have a healthy lifestyle. It includes maintaining an optimal weight, avoiding exposure to toxins, following a doctor-supervised exercise program, eating a balanced diet, and avoiding or limiting alcohol and tobacco consumption.

Second, after all tingling in hands and feet is caused by kidney damage. If we can impair the damaged kidney, this symptom naturally disappears.
