    How Skin Itching Occurs in Chronic Kidney Disease

    How Skin Itching Occurs in Chronic Kidney DiseaseSkin itching is a kind of skin problems which make patients discomforts and upset. For chronic kidney disease patients, they are prone to suffer from itchy skin. Well then, how does it occur in this type of kidney disease?

    As a matter of fact, itchy skin can be caused by hundreds of possible causes. Kidney disease can be one of causes of itchy skin. As we all know, kidneys play an important role in removing wastes including creatinine, urea nitrogen and some other toxic substances out of body. However, kidney disease patients are prone to suffer from skin itching easily. Why? Because their kidneys are damaged for some reasons and kidneys fails to do these job as they did once. The specific reasons are as follows:

    Accumulation of waste products and toxins

    For kidney disease patients, their decreased renal function fail to expel these substances and as a result of this, waste products will pile up in the body. At the same time, high levels of toxins not only threat other internal organs, but also stimulate skin system, which can make itchy skin directly.

    Disorder of electrolytes (high phosphorus and low calcium)

    High phosphorus level is another reason to lead to skin itching. The damaged kidney can’t discharge extra phosphorus from the blood. Once these phosphorus deposit on the skin tissues, it will induce skin problems, like itching skin. What’s more, high phosphorus usually affect the calcium level, leading to bone problems.

    Therefore, it is very necessary to solve this problem from the root. There are several home remedies which can make reference to you.

    -Avoid scratching whenever possible.

    -Take a comfortably cool bath.
