    Why Does CKD Make You ItchyChronic kidney disease is the progressive loss in renal function over a period of months or years. Along with decline of renal function, patients will experience many health problems, among them, skin itching make patients very suffering. Why does CKD make you itchy?

    The specific reasons are as follows:

    In normal condition, our healthy kidneys need to do a lot of work to guarantee our body health. One of the functions is to keep the metabolic balance of electrolytes . However, for people with chronic kidney disease, along with gradual drop on renal function, the damaged kidney also lose this ability accordingly. Skin itching is mainly due to the high phosphorus and low calcium.

    Phosphorus and calcium compete for absorption, so elevated phosphorus often causes patients to have hypocalcemia. While hypocalcemia can cause patients to have the hypertension of parathyroid gland, which can make the calcium ion in bone move into patient’s blood, and when calcium accumulate in skin, it will cause patients to have itchy skin. Besides, much parathyrin can also promote the hyperplasia of mast cells and then they will secrete histamine, which can also cause patients to have itchy skin.

    How to manage skin itchy for chronic kidney disease?
