Why Do Diabetic Nephropathy Patients Have Itching

Why Do Diabetic Nephropathy Patients Have ItchingDiabetic Nephropathy is resulted from long-term diabetes. When kidneys are unable to filter blood normally, some related complications like skin itching may occur. Why do these patients have itchy skin?

When diabetes attacks kidneys, many other organs may also be involved in diabetes damage. Some of these conditions can induce skin itching. They are:

- Buildup of large waste chemicals or toxins. Kidneys are in charge of removing these harmful substances. When kidney filters are damaged, they fail to remove these substances. Accumulation of large molecular substances can cause itching. Even if patients begin to start dialysis, their skin itching won’t be relieved. This is because dialysis, both hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis, can’t do anything for the excretion of large molecular waste chemicals.

- High phosphorus level. The elevation of phosphorus level in the blood usually occurs in end stage kidney disease. When phosphorus forms crystal and collects in the skin, it will trigger skin itching.

- Infections. Diabetics are more likely to have a lot of sweating that causes bacteria and virus to induce infections easily. Then, patients may feel itchy all over the body especially the infected region.

Now, we have known why patients with Diabetic Nephropathy patients have skin itching. Then, what we should do is to manage these underlying causes. If you don’t know what causes your skin itching, you can consult the Doctor online or email to After finding out the cause, you should take effective treatments to manage your health problem immediately with doctor’s guidance.

In addition to lowering high phosphorus level, removing waste products and treating infections, patients should also take some therapies to improve their kidney condition and reverse kidney damage. To learn more about these therapies, welcome to contact us.
