Causes for Metabolic Acidosis in ESRD and Its Natural Treatment

2013-10-07 11:37

Causes for Metabolic Acidosis in ESRDMetabolic acidosis is a common complication of renal disease, especially can be commonly seen when condition develops ESRD, the last stage of kidney disease. Now are you ready to follow us to learn more about causes for metabolic acidosis in ESRD and its natural treatment?

Causes for metabolic acidosis in ESRD

In CKD, the net acid excretion is initially maintained by increased ammonium excretion per nephron till the glomerular filtration rate (GFR) is 40-50ml/min. Below that, failure of hydrogen ion excretion and a reduction in titratable acidity leads to development of metabolic acidosis. In the early stages the retained hydrogen ions are neutralized by the various buffers in the body and the serum bicarbonate is maintained between 12 and 20mEq/dL. With increased hydrogen ion retention, these mechanisms fail resulting in metabolic acidosis.

In advanced kidney disease as GFR falls below 20ml/min, the kidneys capacity to filter the anions of organic acids is significantly diminished and thus there is retention of phosphates, sulphates, urate and hippurate anions in the plasma that significantly raise the anion gap resulting in an elevated anion gap metabolic acidosis.

How kidney disease causes metabolic acidosis is a complicated theory. You may not understand the causes for metabolic acidosis in ESRD mentioned above, but there is one thing you should know and that is metabolic acidosis is associated with the decreased GFR levels.

Natural treatment for metabolic acidosis for ESRD patients

In addition to those routine therapies used to adjust metabolic acidosis, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can become kidney failure patients’ another treatment option. This treatment is based on Chinese herbal medicines, but used externally. ESRD patients just need to lie on the bed to take it. Two bags filled with processed Chinese herbal medicines are put under the lower back of patients, osmosis device helps the active materials directly get to kidneys.

Through anti-inflammation, anti-coagulation, degradation, extending blood vessels, promoting blood circulation, removing blood stasis, promoting DNA replication of damaged inherent cells and providing nutrition for damaged kidneys, kidney function can be gradually recovered, GFR levels will be increased. So Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy deals with metabolic acidosis through increasing GFR levels.

Foreign ESRD patients describe Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy as Chinese massage, very comfortable. If you would like to know more about this natural treatment for ESRD, we are glad to offer you more information.
