Chronic Kidney Disease has become one of the more common diseases nowadays. Because of the complexity of pathogenesis and the difficulty of diagnosis, some patients find that the disease has become more serious, and even develop to the situation of Renal Failure.
Speaking of kidney disease, people have to think of the end of renal failure - uremia, many kidney friends think that uremia, life will end, there is no meaning of treatment. But in fact, although nephropathy is difficult to cure and uremia has no effective way to cure thoroughly at present, but adhere to the correct treatment method, can still maintain life, improve living standards, and live like normal people.
From nephropathy to uremia, patients with different conditions have different time. In addition to congenital pathological factors, acquired treatment also determines the incidence of uremia. Some patients progress to renal failure in a few years, while others have stable renal function for ten or even more years. Ultimately, uremia is that we no longer play the role of detoxification, and toxins in the body in addition to damage the kidney, but also damage other organs, endangering life and health.
Although uremia is incurable, it is preventable. Kidney friends should be alert to these symptoms.
Symptoms of nephropathy deterioration: edema aggravation, nausea and vomiting, loss of appetite, worsening sense of fatigue, marked reduction of urine volume, slow decline in blood pressure, severe anemia, poor complexion and so on, which not only reduces the surface renal function to a certain extent, but also damages other organs.
Uremia is not an incurable disease. You can still live a normal life if you do these things well.
1. Adhere to the correct dialysis method
Uremia is a period of timely detoxification of toxins, mainly through dialysis to treat, commonly used including hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis, in addition to kidney transplantation is now the replacement of kidney treatment. Hematological toxin clearance is strong, generally adhere to treatment, 2-3 times a week, patients should go to the hospital for dialysis regularly; peritoneal dialysis can be operated at home, easy to operate, but the toxin clearance rate is low, need continuous dialysis, general symptoms of mild patients can use peritoneal dialysis first.
2. Manage dietary intake
Although uremic patients need not be too restrictive in diet when they are undergoing dialysis. But for all kinds of dietary principles, we should also be aware of them. Usually uremic patients are prone to severe complications such as hyperkalemia and hyperphosphorus, so attention should be paid to the intake of foods containing potassium and phosphorus.
3. Improving life habits
Uremia patients should develop good living habits. After treatment, they should adhere to appropriate exercise, improve resistance, reduce the incidence of infection, do not smoke, drink, stay up late, and so on. For patients with hypertension and hyperlipidemia, they should adhere to weight loss, monitoring indicators and so on, so as to achieve a high degree of self-discipline in life.
4. Keep a good mind
To uremia period, many friends are very poor mentality, continued to decline, there is no hope. However, poor mood will affect the treatment of the disease, resulting in low immunity and inactive treatment, so I hope that every uremic patient can actively face life, face the current treatment.
