Why Is Numbness Seen in ESRD Patients

Why Is Numbness Seen in ESRD PatientsESRD (end stage renal disease) is one condition in which kidneys lose their ability to filter blood. In this case, numbness and tingling is often seen in ESRD patients. This problem must affect patients’ life quality. Why do ESRD patients have numbness?

Today, we have invited kidney doctors from Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital to introduce the cause of numbness and tingling for kidney patients, and they give out the following reasons.

1. Poor blood circulation

In end stage renal disease, kidneys filter much less blood every minute than healthy kidneys. Then, blood circulation all over the body becomes poorer and poorer, so various functioning cells in the body can’t get enough blood and oxygen. Then, numbness occurs easily.

2. Too much fluid retention in certain regions

Because kidneys’ basic function is to produce urine, severely damaged kidneys can’t remove extra fluid from the body efficiently. Then, excessive amount of fluid will collect in some regions especially hands, legs, ankles and foot. This must affect these regions’ capacity of action.

3. Deposits of waste products and toxins

As kidney function level declines, waste products and toxins deposit in the body to damage nerves in various organs and systems, resulting in numbness and tingling.

4. Diabetes

It is reported that diabetes is the leading cause of kidney disease especially in end stage. If uncontrolled effectively, high blood sugar will damage capillaries all over the body that is also one cause of numbness especially in feet.

These are common causes of numbness and tingling for patients with end stage renal disease. If you have this problem, you should firstly find out the underlying cause and then take effective treatment to manage it. To learn useful methods to get rid of this symptom, you can consult us directly.
