2014-09-26 10:49

causes and treatment of stage 4 kidney failureApproximately 90 percent of patients with stage 4 kidney failure experience itching skin. There is no doubt that the itching skin in stage 4 kidney failure can discount the quality of life. Is there a safe and effective treatment? Well, the answer is definite.

Causes of itching skin in stage 4 kidney failure

When kidneys fail to perform properly, fluids are removed from the body without the waste products. Increased fluid intake up to 2 liters per day is necessary to prevent imbalance and dehydration, especially for stage 4 kidney failure patients on dialysis. Dehydrated skin flakes and itches continually until rehydrated or moisturized.

Calcium and phosphorus in the blood that occurs with stage 4 kidney failure causes the body to naturally pull liquids from the skin to the blood vessels to prevent high mineral levels in the blood. This essentially causes skin dehydration and itching skin.

The accumulation of waste products and minerals can cause the histamine to release, which causes allergic-reaction itching. In addition, histamine can be released during dialysis if the patient is allergic to any of the materials used, including dialyzer membranes or the drug heparin.

Treatment for itching skin in stage 4 kidney failure

In Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital, various Chinese therapies are used to help kidney disease patients treat the disease from the root. Most importantly, some treatments can help gradually increase GFR levels and improve kidney function, thus avoiding dialysis and reduce the times of experiencing dialysis.

According to TCM syndrome differentiation, the proper Chinese therapies like medicated bath, hot compress therapy can directly help stage 4 kidney failure patients treat itching skin. However, once the kidney function can be improved, kidneys will work normally again, then itching skin and other symptoms of kidney failure can be totally treated.
