    2014-05-16 06:57| Font Size A A A

    What Causes Ammoniac Taste in Mouth with Stage 4 CKDChronic kidney disease will damage patient’s kidney function gradually, and stage 4 CKD means patient’s kidney function is damaged severely. Kidney is a very important organ, which is in charge of our internal metabolic balances. As a result, when patient’s kidney function is damaged severely, that will cause patients to have many health problems, among which ammonic taste in mouth can also appear.

    Why patients with stage 4 CKD have ammonic taste in mouth?

    For patients with stage 4 CKD, their kidney function is damaged severely, and low kidney function will cause lots of metabolic wastes to accumulate in patient’s body.

    A major cause of ammonic taste in mouth is high urea level, which can stimulate the bacteria in intestine to secret urease, that will decompose urea into ammonia. Ammonia can be excreted out through mouth, which can cause patients to have ammonic taste. Besides, urea in patient’s blood can also flow into patient’s lungs through blood circulation, and it can be excreted out by breathing in this process, which can also cause ammonic taste in patient’s mouth.

    How to deal with this problem?

    Ammonic taste in mouth is mainly caused by high urea level in blood, and patient’s kidney damage is usually very severe at this point. To solve this problem, it is necessary to improve patient’s kidney function.

    Even if patient’s kidney damage is already very severe, lots of nephrons are juts in a damaged state at this point, and if they can be repaired, patient’s kidney function will be improved obviously. In fact, treatments that combine Chinese medicine and western medicine can improve patient’s condition obviously, because Chinese medicine can improve patient’s self-repairing ability by treating disease systemically, and western medicine is good at controlling patient’s condition. Besides, Enema Therapy is a good method of Chinese medicine to remove much excess urea in patient’s body.
