Metallic Taste in ESRD: Causes and Treatments

Metallic Taste in ESRD: Causes and TreatmentsWith ESRD or end stage renal disease, patients may suffer from various problems. Metallic taste in the mouth along with ammonia breath must affect patients’ appetite and life quality largely. Therefore, it is necessary to make clear the causes and treatments of metallic taste for ESRD patients.

Causes of metallic taste in ESRD

No matter whether patients have begun dialysis or not, metallic taste may become their concern. This is because this problem has a close link with large molecular waste products and toxins in the blood. Dialysis can replace kidneys to cleanse the blood, but it mainly eliminates small molecular substances such as water, creatinine and urea. However, for moderate and large molecular toxins, dialysis can do nothing.

For ESRD patients, the root cause of metallic taste in their mouth is their impaired kidney. In this case, too much urea builds up in the body. With the bacterial decomposition, urea will form ammonia. Then, breath problems and bad taste in the mouth occurs easily.

Treatments of metallic taste in ESRD

1. Other blood purification methods: Different from dialysis, some other blood purification ways such as CRRT and immune adsorption can help remove out moderate and large molecular waste products and toxins, so they can overcome the disadvantage of dialysis and ease patient’s bad taste in the mouth.

2. Clear Blood Pollution Therapy: This therapy focuses on normalizing blood circulation and prompting the restoration of impaired kidneys. Once kidney function is higher than 15% and maintains stable, patients’ complications may including metallic taste will be alleviated largely.
