2017-04-12 06:18

Ithcy Skin Problem In Hemodialysis PatientsIn our mail kidneycares@hotmail.com from our patients, we find the most frequently asked question is how to treat itchy skin in hemodialysis (HD). Itchy skin is a common and unbearable symptom in kidney patients.

The morbidity of itchy skin in hemodialysis patients is 60%-80%. The condition becomes severe with time in HD. This makes patients very painful and affects patients’ life quality greatly. Well then, how to deal with this condition and improve your life quality?

First, what causes itchy skin in dialysis patients?

When kidneys are damaged, they fail to excrete phosphorus effectively. Then phosphorus level will elevate and blood calcium will decrease. This will stimulate PTH secretion so as to cause secondary hyperparathyroidism. Studies have proven that secondary hyperparathyroidism can cause itchy skin. Besides, damaged kidneys can also make nitrogen metabolities deposit in your body. Waste accumulation can cause dry skin and itchy skin. In summary, the root cause of itchy skin is damaged kidneys. Thus, the treatment for itchy skin should repair kidney damage and improve renal function.

Second, how to restore injured kidney and improve renal function?

Our hospital applies Chinese medicine therapies including Medicated Bath, Mai Kang Mixture, Medicinal Soup, Moxibustion Therapy, Steaming Therapy and Enema Therapy, etc. When the patient comes to our hospital, we first give the patient a check up. Based on his reports, our doctor will choose proper treatment for the patient. Chinese medicine therapies can excrete wastes and toxins out of your body via urine, bowel movement and sweat glands. This can provide a clean blood environment. And then Chinese medicines stimulate the self-healing ability of injured kidney tissues and improve renal function through expanding blood vessels, improving blood circulation, preventing inflammation and coagulation, degrading extracellular matrix and providing nutrients. Usually high creatinine level will be reduced 10% after 15 days treatment and renal function can be improved graduallyafter one month. When renal function is improved, itchy skin will be relieved radically because high phosphorus and waste deposition will be eliminated.

Itchy skin in dialysis treatment can be treated radically by Chinese medicine treatments. If you want to learn more information about our Chinese medicine therapies, you can leave a message below or email kidneycares@hotmail.com. We will reply you as soon as possible.
