Uremia patients usually pass through the descending stage of renal function, the stage of hypoxemia, the stage of renal failure and the stage of uremia. The treatments used for each occasion are different. Here we will take a look at the common treatment of uremia.
Dialysis refers to by filtration, selectively exclude certain substances in the blood. That is to say, by artificial means of toxic waste accumulation in the body of patients with uremia, water and salt out, so that the physical condition of the patient back to health.
The form of dialysis hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis is two. Hemodialysis is the use of a special machine instead of the kidneys. Peritoneal dialysis uses the peritoneum of the body as a filter to remove toxins from the body.
Second, renal transplantation
Some end stage uremia requires long-term renal dialysis when the economy and physical condition are appropriate.
Kidney transplantation is the process of transplanting an organ donor's kidney into the recipient's body by surgery. The possible source of the kidney may be the family, spouse, intimate friend, or brain death, and the person who has signed consent to donate organs before his death. Kidney transplant kidney transplantation can bring a better quality of life in a short period of time; but the transplant is a big project, although the current medical technology has been quite good, still need to do a lot of beforehand assessment, in order to improve the probability of successful kidney transplant.
Third, diet treatment of uremia
Limiting potassium uptake
Accumulation of potassium in the body can cause muscle weakness, which can lead to heart failure, which can lead to heart failure.
Not because of kidney dialysis, unable to produce protein metabolism after waste discharge, the uremia situation is more serious, therefore, would suggest reduced protein intake; but if dialysis, it should be noted that in dialysis can cause loss of body protein, so must cooperate with the nutritionist's advice, in order to maintain the body required.
Limit sodium intake
Because the salt contains higher sodium content, in the uremia body, if has too many sodium, can cause the body water retention, thus causes the heart and lung function failure and aggravates the uremia situation. But do not use low sodium salts because of low sodium salts and high potassium ions.
The above is the treatment of uremia, dialysis therapy needs due to treatment and symptomatic treatment, different period with different treatment, the treatment method to choose the most appropriate.
