The most worrying problem for patients with chronic kidney disease is the fear that their condition will develop into uremia. This is not only the worry of patients, but also the most frustrating problem in the treatment of doctors. In reality, some patients with chronic nephropathy, no matter how hard doctors and patients try, eventually become uremia and into dialysis treatment.
This mainly comes from two reasons: the cause of nephropathy itself, kidney disease to the drug response is not good, or the initial treatment of nephropathy belongs to the middle and late stage of chronic nephropathy, the loss of effective treatment opportunities. For example, in the middle and late stage of diabetic nephropathy, the final disease will inevitably develop into end-stage nephropathy; The more common cause is that multiple risk factors are not corrected or effectively prevented, which contribute to the rapid progression of kidney disease to uremia. This part of the risk factor, if the patient takes it seriously, can be avoided. Prophylaxis or intervention that can effectively prevent or delay the development of chronic nephropathy into uremia, but requires long-term persistence and attention.
What risk factors affect the progression of chronic kidney disease?
Oneself disease is not controlled. Common have: high blood sugar, high blood pressure, high blood fat, high uric acid, heart function is not complete. These diseases often accompany with kidney disease, mutually worsen, so must control effectively.
Improper behavior, diet, lifestyle. Common factors such as eating out of control or overeating, smoking, drinking alcohol, obesity and so on, these factors need perseverance to improve.
Nephrotoxic drugs and contrast agents. Common nephrotoxic drugs such as: nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory painkillers, aminoglycoside antibiotics, chemotherapeutic drugs, antiepileptic drugs, certain Chinese medicines containing aristolochic acid, etc. Ionic, hyperosmotic. Large doses of contrast agents should be avoided as much as possible.
Environmental factors. Patients with chronic nephropathy should avoid exposure to toxic substances and environment, such as cadmium, mercury, toxic gases such as formaldehyde, fluoride, in addition to pesticides, bee venom. Avoid contact or food as far as possible, such as snake gall.
Infection. Infection not only leads to failure of nephrotic treatment or induces recurrence of the disease, but every infection may cause a blow to the kidney, especially in the middle and late stages of kidney disease. A serious infection can promote the progression of nephropathy and go directly into uremia. Therefore, chronic nephropathy, prevention of infection must not forget.
Chronic nephropathy requires rest and recuperation to a certain extent, which is right. Avoid strenuous physical labor and strenuous confrontational sports as far as possible, avoid staying up late at night and working regularly and regularly.
