    The Main Reason Of Itchy Skin Is Not High Phosphorus Level

    2017-06-07 07:15| Font Size A A A

    The Main Reason Of Itchy Skin Is Not High Phosphorus LevelAbout one third of kidney failure patients suffers from itchy skin. Actually itchy skin accounts for 60-90% in dialysis patients. The longer you take dialysis, the severe your condition will be. Itchy skin affects patients’ life quality severely.

    There are many causes that can cause itchy skin. The following are some reasons and relative solution.

    1. Electrolyte metabolic disorder-Phosphorus

    High phosphorus level can cause secondary hyperparathyroidism, cardiovascular calcification, itchy skin, calcification of soft tissues or joints, joint pain or bone fracture.

    This is a well-known cause. Because the ability of excreting phosphorus by kidneys declines. Phosphorus you intake can not be removed. Blood phosphorus level will increase. Then free calcium will reduce. This can lead to hyperparathyroidism and cause itchy skin.

    Solution to this case

    Limit the intake of phosphorus and avoid eating animal organs.

    Take active vitamin D to supplement calcium

    2. Insufficient dialysis

    The symptoms of insufficient dialysis include lots of toxins depositing in your body (Dry skin, itchy skin, dark skin, anemia symptoms, digestive tract symptoms like nausea, vomiting, poor appetite, nervous symptoms), lots of potassium, calcium and phosphorus, fluid retention (High blood pressure, heart dysfunction, pulmonary edema and pericarditis )

    Solution to dialysis dysfunction

    Reduce repeated use of low flux dialyzer, increase your dialysis times and choose medium flux dialyzer

    In daily life, patients can use cold water and iced towel to wet your skin and relieve itchy skin.

    In summary, dialysis is not a good choice for kidney patients. The radical therapy for itchy skin is to repair injured kidney tissues and improve renal function. Here we recommend Toxin-Removing Treatment which is a series of Chinese medicine therapies including Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Medicated Foot Bath, Mai Kang Mixture, Medicinal Soup, Moxibustion Therapy, Steaming Therapy and Enema Therapy, etc. They first cleanse your blood and then restore your injured kidney tissues through dilating blood vessels, improving blood circulation, preventing inflammation and coagulation, degrading extracellular matrix and providing nutrients. In this way, hyperparathyroidism will disappear. More importantly, it is able to eliminate dialysis. Itchy skin can be relieved radically.
