Kidney disease is a catalyst to cause heart failure according to medical theory. So one physician has said that if one is diseased, better keep a close eye on the other. Patients have to pay more care for heart once their kidneys have some problems.
Kidney disease and heart failure
Many complications of kidney disease all would lead to heart disease and even
heart failure. Due to the kidney cells damage, more and more tissues cannot
function well. Thereby kidneys filter less toxins and excess fluid than before.
The toxins definitely would poison all the organs and tissues along with the
blood stream to go around the body. So they also affect heart and destroy its
tissues. Furthermore, more fluid in the blood would greatly increase the strain
of heart and bring about high blood pressure which is the main causes of heart
In the early stage of kidney disease, patients usually lose protein from the
blood and result in hypoproteinemia which means low level of protein in the
blood. This will promote to produce more protein, which may lead to
hyperlipemia. Thereby patients have high risk of blocking the main blood vessels
of heart. Heart failure may occur suddenly. That is the reason why people would
have heart disease early than the serious ravage of kidneys.
Following with increased severity of kidney disease, major of kidney tissues
are damaged and the elements cannot be discharged from the body like before.
Potassium is one of these elements. Many foods are rich in potassium, such as
tomato, spinach, mushroom, celery, pumpkin, beans, carrots and so on. So people
may input potassium every day but cannot output it, causing a very high level of
potassium. In this way, people are very easy to bring about heart failure.
Except for these causes above, heart failure may be caused by any other
factors of kidney disease. So people had better treat kidney problems first to
reduce the danger of heart failure. Immunotherapy is one of the best treatments
for kidney disease with a good curative effect and you can try it.
