A lot of patients with kidney failure, whether uremia and renal failure is the same concept, because we do not understand this problem, then the following to introduce the difference between renal failure and uremia.
Staging is different: the final stage of chronic renal failure is uremia, and the stages are different. Chronic renal failure (CRF) is a common clinical syndrome. It occurs on a variety of chronic renal parenchymal diseases and is slowly associated with renal failure and failure. Uremia is the terminal stage of progressive chronic renal failure. According to the extent of renal damage, it can be pided into four stages, that is, renal function compensation, decompensation, renal failure, end-stage renal failure - uremia.
The clinical symptoms are different: chronic renal failure, especially after the failure of renal failure, the clinical symptoms are more obvious. For example, the digestive system has the stench of urine, anorexia, nausea and vomiting; nervous system fatigue, headache, dizziness, drowsiness, irritability, apathy, severe convulsions, coma and other cardiovascular system; left ventricular hypertrophy, hypertension, myocarditis, pericarditis, visual impairment, retinal hemorrhage; hematopoietic system of anemia, bleeding tendency deep breathing; respiratory metabolic acidosis, there may be a sign of pleurisy; skin itching with pigmentation, disorder of water and electrolyte balance. Uremia is the end-stage of chronic renal failure, so the clinical symptoms are more serious.
In a different direction: renal failure occurs due to the healthy nephron of the kidney damage function is gradually lost, with the aggravation of renal damage to the unit from damage, until the process of apoptosis, in this pathological process is renal fibrosis. If renal failure is not effectively blocked for renal fibrosis, even a temporary improvement of the condition after the use of some drugs can only be described as an illusion and will eventually progress to uremia. At this point, almost all of the renal tissue scar, lost almost all functions. If effective treatment occurs only when hematuria or proteinuria occurs, it can delay the progression of renal fibrosis and protect residual renal function.
The above describes the difference between renal failure and uremia, I believe you have more understanding, no matter what disease, we should give priority to prevention, the daily life of a lot of exercise, should pay attention to diet, not overeating, the rest of life to the good.
