Chronic Kidney Failure and Sickle Cell Disease

Chronic Kidney Failure and Sickle Cell DiseaseSickle cell disease or sickle cell anemia is one serious disease caused by the substitution of one amino acid in the hemoglobin of red blood cells. This disease can cause permanent damage to various organs including kidneys. Today, we will talk about chronic kidney failure and sickle cells.

How does sickle cell cause kidney disease?

Firstly, we should know sickle cell disease is one genetic disorder and in some cases, this disease bursts very, very quickly. It leads red blood cells to form into a sickle shape. Normally, red blood cells can live about 120 days, but sickle cells can live only 10-20 days. This can induce anemia easily.

The impaired sickle red blood cells usually clump together and adhere to blood vascular walls, resulting in blood flow blockage and poor blood circulation. Without enough blood and oxygen supplement, the functioning cells all over the body are damaged easily. Since kidneys have a direct link with blood circulation, they are attacked more easily. Finally, kidneys fail to work gradually.

In turn, kidney problem will worsen sickle cell anemia

In addition to filtering blood, producing EPO is another important kidney function. When kidneys are damaged severely, they are unable to produce enough EPO. Then, fewer red blood cells are made. There is no doubt that this can aggravate patients’ anemia easily.

Treatments to manage chronic kidney failure and sickle cells

At present, there is no specific treatment for sickle cells. If patients’ condition is severe, they need to accept hospitalization treatment, and doctors give blood transfusion, fluid infusion, painkillers and antibiotics to their patients.

As for kidney damage, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Immunotherapy and Clear Blood Pollution Therapy can help reverse kidney damage. However, if all of kidney function is lost, they may need to do dialysis, Blood Purification or even kidney transplant.
