Are Swelling and High Potassium Level Life Threatening for People with Chronic Kidney Disease

Chronic Kidney Disease patients are usually troubled by a range of symptoms. However, if there are swelling and high potassium level, will their lives be threatened?

Kidneys are two important organs of our body. And one of the important functions of kidneys is to purify blood. Therefore, the body fluid level can be kept at a reasonable level. However, for those with CKD, the injured kidneys will not be able to work as normal. As a consequence, a number of symptoms including swelling and high potassium level are more likely to appear.

To be frank, swelling in chronic kidney disease is mainly due to the following two factors: heavy loss of protein in urine and water-sodium retention. Usually, it can be seen around the eyelids, legs, arms and so on. In serious condition, the respiratory organ may be involved.

When it comes to high potassium level, there can be numbness in the limbs. Meanwhile, irregular heart beat and cardiac arrest can also occur. So, if swelling and high potassium level can’t be controlled well, the lives of people with CKD will be threatened.

Are there some effective methods? Yes. The most straightforward way is to limit the intake of salt, fluid and potassium. Foods loaded with sodium include salted fish, preserved meat, pickled vegetables, animal giblets and so on; And foods rich in potassium include banana, orange, potato, spinach, peanut, mushroom, etc.

Additionally, it is essential to take effective treatments to repair injured renal cells and improve kidney function. At our Kidney Service China, Clear Blood Pollution Therapy is recommended for this condition. Besides, Medicated Bath is also helpful to control swelling and high potassium level.
