Renal Failure Affects Calcium Level in the Blood
Renal failure is the end stage of renal disease. In this stage, many salts, wastes products and excessive water cannot be discharged from the body. So patients always have a disorder in regulate the electrolyte of body. Calcium level in the blood are usually varies in different patients with renal failure. Thereby calcium recommendations for people are different from those of the general population.
High calcium is very common for renal failure
In our daily diet, many foods contain calcium which can avoid the loss of calcium and keep the bone healthy and hard. However, in the people with renal failure, most of the salts cannot be discharged from the body and deposit much in the blood vessels.
When bones are taking metabolism, its components are resolved in the blood vessels, such as calcium and its binders phosphorus. High calcium level is accompanied with high level of phosphorus which leads to severe skin itching. Too high level of calcium or phosphorus will increase the risk of phosphorus deposits in soft tissues such as arteries, heart lungs, eyes and skin.
Besides, when the bone is resolved, the patients are easy to suffer from osteoporosis. So their bones are so weak that they would be broken after falling down.
High calcium treatment
In order to lower down the risks of high calcium, most patients are suggested to take on dialysis. It can replace the kidneys to remove excessive calcium and phosphorus from the body. However, it has no capability to change the illness condition of weak bones. So many patients are seeking a better treatment.
A new therapy called Immunotherapy is used to treat renal failure and improve the metabolism of salts. The immune protection (one step of immunotherapy) is favor to renal failure. It utilizes Chinese herbs and Immunotherapy which both can repair kidney tissues in order to increase GFR greatly. Patients can keep a normal salts metabolism by their own kidneys instead of dialysis. So the calcium level and phosphorus level can be controlled well in a natural way.
