Heart failure is the main cause of death in renal failure so it is important to prevent heart failure in life.
The kidney doctors from Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital, China say that
renal failure patients should be wary of the heart failure. Researches find that
renal failure has profound negative effects on the body that can cause serious
and life-threatening life. Renal failure is one of the complications. How does
renal failure cause heart failure?
Renal failure can cause a lot of symptoms including:
High blood pressure
Disorder of electrolytes
Long-term high blood pressure increases the load of heart which can cause
heart failure. In end-stage renal failure, the elevated plasma catecholamines
levels are closely associated with heart failure. In addition, high blood
pressure speeds up the progress of atherosclerosis, promoting the onset of heart
Renal failure patients need to be wary of the heart failure caused by renal
failure. The excessive wastes build up in the body which restricts myocardium,
causing myocardium disease and decline of heart function. In addition, the
disorder of electrolytes due to renal failure can lead to heart failure.
In renal failure patients, anemia will reduce the oxygen in the heart which
leads to decline of heart function. The less oxygen supply to the heart makes it
work hard which can leads to heart failure.
