    Are Seizures Related to Renal FailureThere is a common question which has bothered patients for a long time, namely, are seizures related to kidney failure? In our daily life, some renal failure patients will experience this symptom during the period of onset of illness or during or after dialysis treatment.

    Actually, seizures are always associated with severe renal failure. How does renal failure cause seizures? There are several reasons which can make reference to you. Please keep reading.

    Disorders of electrolyte

    Disorders of electrolyte like hypercalcemia, hypocalcemia, hypoglycemia, hyperglycemia, hyponatremia and hypernatremia will lead to seizures. For patients in end stage kidney failure, their kidney function usually has been damaged more than 85%. In this condition, dialysis is commonly used to replace partial kidney function, and in the early dialysis, electrolytes like calcium, potassium are still imbalanced. Consequentially, electrolyte disorders lead to seizures.

    Accumulation of waste product and toxins

    Due to severe damage on kidney function, the kidney fails to discharge the wastes and toxins like metabolic products from the body. Along with the accumulation of the wastes and toxins in the body, seizures will occur.

    Dialysis disequilibrium syndrome

    Seizure is a central nervous system disorder, and it can cause muscle cramp, anorexia and dizziness. Dialysis disequilibrium syndrome is due primarily to cerebral edema. Patients run higher risk of seizures in this situation.

    Aluminium poisoning

    Aluminium poisoning is another cause of seizures among dialysis patients. It is more common in those that have taken dialysis for long term and it is related to the chronic accumulation of aluminium in the brain. The main symptoms of aluminium poisoning are progressive will decline, reduced thinking ability, dementia, muscle cramps and seizures will occur.
