How Itching Occurs in ESRD Patient

How Itching Occurs in ESRD PatientWith the onset of ESRD (end stage renal disease), patients are more likely to be tormented by skin changes such as dry skin and skin itching. However, if you have itchy skin, don’t scratch your skin. Otherwise, it may cause infection or other problems. Do you know why itching occurs in ESRD patients?

When kidney disease progresses into end stage, diseased kidneys fail to remove waste products, toxins and extra phosphorus from the body. Skin itching is related to the accumulation of large molecular waste products and phosphorus. Then, only if these substances are eliminated from the body, skin itchiness can be eased effectively.

How to achieve this goal? Firstly, patients should take some kidney replacement therapies, because kidneys can’t play filtration function by themselves. At present, several methods are helpful.

1. Dialysis: It can help remove extra phosphorus from the body but fails to deal with large molecular waste products. Besides, it may cause some side effects easily, and not all ESRD patients need to live with dialysis.

2. Blood Purification: Compared with dialysis, it can cleanse the blood more thoroughly. In addition to extra phosphorus, it can also excrete large molecular waste products and toxins.

3. Clear Blood Pollution Therapy: Different from the above two methods, Clear Blood Pollution Therapy can not only purify the blood but also rebuild kidney structure. That’s to say, this therapy can do more than just helping diseased kidneys to remove these harmful substances.

In addition to medical therapies, patients should also limit their intake of phosphorus-containing foods and high-protein foods. Also, some home remedies are helpful to help ease skin itching to some extent. If you want to learn more about these natural remedies, just email to or Either is OK.
