Chronic Kidney Disease and Dry Mouth: Causes and Treatments

Chronic Kidney Disease and Dry Mouth: Causes and TreatmentsWith the progression of Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD), a series of symptoms and problems will happen. Among them, dry mouth is one common symptom that can reflect some underlying conditions. In this article, you can learn about causes and treatments of dry mouth caused by kidney disease.

Causes of dry mouth for Chronic Kidney Disease patients

Generally speaking, two conditions can result in dry mouth for kidney patients.

1. Limited fluid intake: When kidneys are unable to filter waste products and remove extra fluid, patients have to control their fluid intake. Otherwise, extra fluid will cause or worsen high blood pressure or swelling. However, dry mouth is one common problem due to limited fluid intake.

2. Azotemia: This condition is attributed to high levels of urea nitrogen. If uncontrolled effectively, azotemia will progress into one serious condition called uremia. Skin paleness, fatigue, dry mouth and other problems are just signs of azotemia.

How to deal with dry mouth for kidney patients?

According to the causes of dry mouth, it is necessary to firstly cleanse patients’ blood circulation and eliminate extra urea from the body. To achieve this goal, dialysis, Blood Purification, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy and many other therapies are helpful. ( Work with the doctor online to determine which therapy is best for you.)

Then, some methods can help alleviate patients’ dry mouth. They are:

- Staying away from salty and spicy foods that make you thirsty

- Making yourself cool

- Giving ice a try

- Using mouthwash or brushing your teeth to refresh your mouth

- Drinking a small amount of water in several times instead of drinking too much water one time

These methods are able to help battle your dry mouth, but if you want to get rid of it from the root, some treatments that can help repair your impaired kidney cells should be sought.
