What is uremia, uremia is a series of complex syndromes caused by the loss of most of the renal function, the waste and excess water produced by metabolism in the body and the disorder of biochemical process in the body. Uremia is not a single disease, but the fate of all kidney disease.
The fear of uremia is that it is similar to "terminal cancer."Treatment is very difficult, only dialysis and kidney transplantation; the therapeutic effect varies from person to person, with good physical quality, high matching degree and high survival rate; too much cost, kidney, surgery, drug costs, not a few hundred thousand can not afford basic treatment. So, what are the incentives for uremia, how can we stay away from uremia?
The disappearance of symptoms does not mean heal. The only evidence a patient can see is his condition: one is his symptoms, the other is an indicator. Most patients find themselves kidney disease by protein and occult blood. So in the eyes of patients with protein occult blood = kidney disease. Protein occult blood is gone, nephropathy just fine. Patients with long illness understand that the disappearance of symptoms does not mean recovery is only a condition improvement. In the suppression of the immune inflammatory response with hormones, the surface looks really good, but in fact still need to continue treatment.
Not good or bad condition on the index. It is not wrong for patients to judge the extent of their illness by indicators. But indicators do not fully represent the condition. Some drugs can reduce protein protection of renal function, but can make a slight increase in creatinine; and some drugs can make creatinine pseudo-decline. But none of these respond to true levels of kidney function.
Improper use of drugs, medication should be cautious. The news that because of improper use of drugs leading to acute renal failure, endless. Such as excessive use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Common are: ibuprofen, aspirin, acetaminophen, indomethacin, diclofenac, ketoprofen, naproxen, aminopyrine, celecoxib, rofecoxib, nimesulide. Drugs marked: "Adverse reactions is not yet clear" a few words, kidney disease patients do not take, because it may have side effects on the kidneys.
If blood pressure control is not ideal, always monitor blood pressure. Long-term poor blood pressure control can damage the kidney, speed up the process of renal fibrosis, and bring people to uremia ahead of time. The impact of blood pressure on the human kidney is very large. Patients with nephropathy are prone to elevated blood pressure. Therefore, patients must pay attention to monitoring blood pressure.
Kidney disease is indeed refractory, but not uncontrollable, uremic population accounted for only 1/10 of the renal disease crowd, many patients are stable after regular hospital treatment, so we should not give up.
