How Hyperkalemia Occurs in Kidney Failure

2014-03-30 07:09

Hyperkalemia is a condition, where extra potassium builds up in blood. How does it occur in kidney failure and how to manage it?

Causes of hyperkalemia in kidney failure

Potassium is a nutrient that is crucial to the function of nerve and muscle cells, including those in your heart. The normal level of potassium in blood is 3.6-5.2 mmol/L. If the potassium level in blood exceeds 7 mmol/L, it can be very dangerous and even life-threatening.

Healthy kidneys can filter out potassium from blood. However, in stage 5 kidney failure, the diseased kidneys fail to eliminate potassium from blood. If extra potassium builds up in blood, it can cause heart failure and even death.

How to reverse hyperkalemia in kidney failure?

Dialysis is normally prescribed to filter potassium from blood, used primarily if kidney function is seriously impaired. However, it can not control the root cause of hyperkalemia in kidney failure.

To reverse hyperkalemia in kidney failure, the patients should have a treatment to repair the impaired kidney structure and reverse kidney damage. If the kidneys can function more efficiently to filter blood, the extra potassium will be eliminated from blood.

To improve renal function, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy will be the recommended treatment for kidney failure patients.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is an external application of Chinese herbal medicines. As the medicines are superfinely shattered, the medicines can be penetrated into kidney lesion via skin in kidney area. The effective medicine ingredients can activate the self-repairing and self-regenerating of the impaired kidney tissues and cells. If the kidney function can be reversed, the kidneys will function more efficiently to filter potassium from blood. Hence, hyperkalemia in kidney failure will be controlled fundamentally.
