Renal failure is the end stage of kidney 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
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.
In our hospital, 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.
