Can You Die From End Stage Renal Failure

Can You Die From End Stage Renal FailureIn general, death from end stage renal failure is considered as a gentle death, so many medical workers would like to die of kidney failure rather than other diseases. From this point, we can know people indeed can die from end stage renal failure.

Commonly, end stage renal disease (ESRD) is in conjunction with other serious problems, so most patients wonder what they can expect when they go through the dying process. Please, don’t worry. Most kidney failure symptoms can be managed or suppressed, so end stage kidney failure won’t cause death so quickly.

What are the severe symptoms of kidney failure?

The kidneys filter waste products and toxins from the blood and maintain fluid retention within the blood. However, when kidneys fail to work, waste products and toxins will build up in the body and cause several symptoms.

1. Lack of energy: The first sign kidney patients may notice is the loss of energy, so they may feel fatigue or weak easily. This problem is usually due to deposits of metabolic waste and renal anemia.

2. Breathing problems: The build up of acids and fluid retention in lung both can cause changes in breathing such as difficult breathing, deep breathing, and shortness of breath. All of these symptoms can affect patients’ health condition a lot.

3. Cardiovascular disorder: High blood pressure, fluid retention, accumulation of waste products and toxins, and so on, all can result in cardiovascular problems, which is the leading cause of death for kidney failure patients.

4. Metabolic acidosis: When kidney disease progresses into end stage, diseased kidneys are unable to eliminate acid, resulting in metabolic acidosis easily. This is also one life-threatening problems.

According to the symptoms and problems the above listed, you should control them timely if patients have one or more symptoms.
