Respiratory Problems Caused by Kidney FailureIs there a relationship between kidney failure and respiratory problems? Some kidney failure patients are complaining that respiratory problems torture them a lot, and whether dialysis treatment can help deal with this problem?

Will kidney failure cause respiratory problems?

When kidney function declines, in addition that waste products begin to build up within the blood, fluid retention also results. If not treated, fluids continue to build within the body and may begin to collect in the air sacs of the lungs. This condition, known as pulmonary edema, can result in difficulty breathing, restlessness, anxiety and wheezing and other respiratory problems. Untreated pulmonary edema can finally lead to respiratory failure which can be life-threatening and directly cause death.
