Malnutrition should be avoided in the treatment of ESRD, ie, as it may influence the prognosis of the disease. Here are five causes of malnutrition happens to patients with ESRD, follow us to learn about them.
- When the condition develops ESRD, you can tell almost all kidney functions have already lost. Waste and toxins accumulate in the gastrointestinal tract can directly influence the absorption of nourishment and cause malnutrition.
- Acidosis can be a common symptom of ESRD. Can restrict promote protein synthesis and to decompose proteins and amino acids.
- Inflammatory factors can reduce protein synthesis.
- A complication of end-stage renal disease, endocrine disorders can affect anabolism of proteins and amino acids.
Over ESRD patients have already started dialysis treatment. It can help patients with ESRD remove wastes, toxins and excess water from the body, meanwhile, can also lead to loss of protein and amino acids. Some related materials have shown that patients with ESRD who are on peritoneal dialysis, protein loss can be 5-10g, while the amino acid can be 1,2-4g. However, if patients with ESRD have peritonitis which can be commonly seen in some patients on peritoneal dialysis, protein loss may even represent 50% -100%. For patients with ESRD who are on hemodialysis, the amino acid can be 10-13g lost, causing malnutrition easy to pass.
Those are the five causes of malnutrition passes ESRD patients. Most nutritional deficiencies can be corrected. However, if the cause is a medical condition, that illness has to be treated in order to reverse the nutritional deficiency.
