Kidney failure is an incurable and fatal disease. In clinic, almost all the kidney failure patients know that kidney failure is deadly, but most of them know nothing about how kidney failure cause death.

When comes to the real cause of death among kidney failure patients, we have to talk about the severe complications of kidney failure, because most of the time, kidney failure do not kill sufferers directly, and it threaten patient’s life by causing a series of severe complications.

Literally, kidney failure means kidneys are failed and unable in working properly. Kidney failure is a illness in kidney, but in reality, it may involve all the systems or organs. Kidney is a bean-shaped organ with multiple functions like adjusting bood pressure, keeping balance of electrolyte and acid-base, secreting necessary hormone and discharging wastes in blood. When kidney function is affected properly, our body will lose its ability to work normally, as a result of which, various abnormal symptoms like high blood pressure, proteinuria, hematuria, anemia and decreased urine output and so on appear.

Besides, as one of the major functions of kidney is to discharge wastes, including toxins produced by our body like creatinine and urea nitrogen, when kidney failure is caused, toxins pile up in the blood. These toxins circulate with blood and may reach out any part of our body. It is common to hear that kidney failure patients complain they are suffering serious nausea, vomiting, poor appetite and bad taste in mouth. Actually, all these symptoms belong to digestive problems which occurs when toxins in blood affect digestive tract.

According to clinical survey, the leading cause of death for kidney failure patients is cardiovascular disease which is the most life-threatening complications of kidney failure. Common cardiovascular disease among kidney failure patients include heart failure, stroke and coronary heart disease. Therefore, having an effective prevention about these serious complications will help kidney failure paients to live a longer and better life.
