Advanced patients even drowsiness, irritability, delirium, convulsions, seizures, muscle tremors or even coma. The cause of these manifestations may be the retention of metabolites, the imbalance of water and electrolytes, metabolic acidosis, and hypertension, which contribute to the nervous system
2) hematopoietic system performance: anemia is uremia patients must have symptoms. Causes of anemia are many, may be red blood cells in patients with nephropathy and erythropoietin reduced or metabolite retention (such as methyl guanidine, guanidinosuccinic acid etc.) inhibit erythrocyte maturation and damage of erythrocyte membrane, to shorten the life span of the reason. In addition, the late stage of uremia anorexia, diarrhea and easy bleeding will cause iron deficiency, lack of folic acid and protein deficiency, loss of urinary protein (especially lost transferrin), is also a cause of anemia. In addition to anemia and bleeding, such as subcutaneous ecchymosis, epistaxis, gingival bleeding, melena, this is because the function of platelet in patients with poor, vulnerable, and acidosis increased capillary fragility caused by.
3) metabolic disorders: uremia patients have varying degrees of metabolic disorder, especially for advanced patients. Due to malnutrition, reduced protein synthesis, protein loss in the urine and therefore, patients with hypoproteinemia and emaciation significantly, the levels of essential amino acids in the blood decreased, and non essential amino acids is greatly increased. Impaired glucose tolerance showed that tissue utilization of carbohydrates was inhibited, fasting insulin was higher in the blood than in normal subjects, and conventional doses of exogenous insulin did not cause blood sugar to decrease. The blood levels of insulin, glucagon, growth hormone, parathyroid hormone, adrenal cortex hormone, gastrin and so on have all increased. In addition, patients with advanced uremia are often associated with hyperlipidemia. Elevated triglycerides may aggravate atherosclerosis. Hyperlipidemia is the result of a disorder of lipid metabolism.
