    How Should CKD Patients Cope with Hyperkalemia

    How Should CKD Patients Cope with HyperkalemiaPotassium is an important electrolyte for our body health, which controls our nerve and muscle function. Kidney can regulate the potassium level in our body, but for patients with chronic kidney disease, their kidney function will be damaged gradually by their disease, which can cause them to have the metabolic disorder of potassium in their body. As a result, that can lead to many severe health problems.

    In fact, it is more likely for patients with CKD to have high potassium in their body, which can cause patients to have problems like nausea, weakness, slow pulse, irregular heartbeat, heart failure, sudden death, etc. Well then, how should patients with CKD deal with hyperkalemia?

    1. Diet restriction:

    To relieve hyperkelemia, CKD patients should restrict their potassium intake, which can help reduce patient’s high potassium level directly. To reach this purpose, patients should avoid foods that contain high potassium, like banana, dried fruits, kiwi, papaya, tomato, potato, milk, yogurt, seeds and nuts, etc, or at least restrict the intake of these foods cautiously. Besides, patients should find help from a dietitian to make a eating plan with right amount of potassium.

    2. Improving kidney function:

    Potassium level in our body is regulated by kidney, so to correct the metabolic disorder of potassium in patients’ body, it is necessary for them to improve their kidney function. Chinese medicine is a great help for CKD patients to improve their kidney function, because it can treat disease systemically and promote patient’s self-repairing ability in this process.

    3. Dialysis:

    For patients with the end stage of CKD, most of them will need to take dialysis to remove out the metabolic wastes and correct the metabolic disorders in their body. Dialysis is an effective measure for CKD patients to control their electrolytes levels, which can help patients make their potassium level in the normal range.

    These are some important methods for patients with CKD to deal with hyperkalemia, which can help patients prevent and control many severe health problems.
