Management of Metabolic Acidosis in Kidney Failure

2013-05-15 09:05

Metabolic acidosis is the most common acid-base disturbance and occurs when there are high levels of acids in the body. In case of kidney failure, metabolic acidosis can cause lots of discomforts and problems like shortness of breath, fatigue and even coma. What is worse, it can worsen illness condition and increase patient’s risk for serious complications like heart failure. From this point of view, effective management of metabolic acidosis is very necessary.

To learn how to manage metabolic acidosis, let’s know about how kidney failure causes metabolic acidosis.

Kidney is an important organ with bean structure. It works as a filter and helps to keep acid-base balance by removing excess acids or alkali. Typically, acid is filtered through the kidneys and excreted in the urine. However, patients with kidney failure can not properly filter and remove the acid from the bloodstream. Consequently, too much acid build up in blood and metabolic acidosis occurs.

Since the occurrence of metabolic acidosis is closely related with decreased kidney function, improving kidney function should be one of the important parts of treatment for metabolic acidosis in kidney failure.

In many cases of kidney failure, metabolic acidosis is treated with NaCl, alkaline drugs or THAM. All these medicines can help to remit metabolic acidosis effectively, but disappointedly, they can not treat damaged kidney, so they are not a long-term solution.

To get metabolic acidosis alleviated radically, treatment like Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy which can help to remove kidney function can be applied. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is based on Chinese herbs and can help to repair injured kidney intrinsic cells. Kidney disease progresses because more and more kidney cells are damaged and fail to function properly. Dead kidney tissues can not be revived, but injured kidney intrinsic cells can be repaired by strengthening their self-repairing ability and when they are activated to work again, kidney function is improved. Kidney is the organ that is in charge of keeping balance of acid-base, so when kidney function gets improved, acids are removed timely and metabolic acidosis is remitted from the root.
