Good Medications for Stage 5 Chronic Kidney Disease

Good Medications for Stage 5 Chronic Kidney DiseaseStage 5 Chronic Kidney Disease is the end stage of kidney disease in which kidneys fail to work normally, so patients should take various medications to manage their kidney disease and symptoms. Generally, they need to take the following medications.

- Anti-hypertensive medications

High blood pressure is one common symptom of chronic kidney disease especially at end stage. In clinic, many medicines can help lower high blood pressure. They are ACEI, ARBs, diuretic, CCB, and so on. To strengthen the effect of these medicines and reduce the side effects, patients may be suggested to take at least two types of anti-hypertensive medicines.

- Medicines to reduce protein leakage

When kidney filtration membrane is damaged, a large amount of protein will leak into urine. In turn, it can cause further damage to kidney filtering structure. To reduce protein in urine, patients can take prednisone, Cellcept, cyclosporin a, and so on. All of these medicines have an obvious effect on managing proteinuria.

- Medicines to ease swelling

To ease swelling, the main medicine is diuretic. In clinic, there are various types of diuretics such as loop diuretics, thiazide diuretic, potassium-sparing diuretic, and so on. Choose correct medicines to alleviate your problem.

- EPO or chalybeate

As kidneys are unable to produce enough EPO, the body fails to make enough red blood cells that causes renal anemia easily. Besides, iron deficiency is another cause of anemia. In this condition, EPO or chalybeate may be used.

- Phosphate binders or active vitamin D
