Advanced kidney disease indicates kidneys are functioning at 15% or less. In this case, more and more waste products and toxins deposit in the blood, and patients will have a series of symptoms and complications. Then, is advanced kidney disease uncomfortable?
Kidneys are great excretory organs that can not only filter out extra fluid, metabolic wastes and toxins but also maintain blood pressure and electrolyte balance. Therefore, when kidneys fail to work, many other organs and systems will also be involved. The following problems and complications must make patients uncomfortable.
1. Metabolic acidosis: In Kidney Failure, some metabolic acid products such as phosphoric acid and sulfuric acid will retain in the body, resulting in metabolic acidosis. Then, poor appetite, nausea, vomiting, fatigue and deep breath present.
2. Fluid and sodium retention: Swelling and high blood pressure are two main complications of this problem. If swelling spreads to heart and lung, patients may have life-threatening complications.
3. Calcium phosphate metabolic disorders: When kidneys are unable to eliminate extra phosphorus out of the body, it will cause high phosphorus level and low calcium. Then, renal bone disease, muscle cramps and muscle pain occurs easily.
4. Respiratory problems: As too much waste product and toxin builds up in the blood, patients may suffer from metallic taste in the mouth or bad breath.
5. Blood system disorders: Because impaired kidneys are unable to produce enough EPO, renal anemia makes patients weak and fatigue easily.
From the above analysis, we can know advanced kidney disease is very uncomfortable.
