Why Does Metallic Taste Appear In Patient With Chronic Renal Failure

Why Does Metallic Taste Appear In Patient With Chronic Renal FailureKidney is the organ that can regulate our body’s internal balance, so kidney damage can cause our body to have many complications, and metallic taste is one of them.

Patient with chronic kidney failure may feel he has metallic taste in his mouth, and this symptom is more likely to appear in patient who is in the late stage of kidney failure, like stage 4 or stge 5.

Why does patient with chronic kidney failure have metallic taste?

For patients who is in the late stage of kidney failure, his kidney structure is damaged severely, and patient’s kidney function is not able to filter the wastes and toxins in his blood adequately, so lots of wastes and toxins will accumulate in blood, and the accumulation of urea nitrogen can cause many problems, which is also the major cause of metallic taste.

As the rise of urea nitrogen level in blood, that will stimulate the bacteria in gastrointestinal tract, and they will excrete urease, which will decompose the urea nitrogen and produce ammonia. While ammonia has strong irritation, and that can cause patient to feel metallic taste in his mouth.

How to treat metallic taste in patient with kidney failure?

Urea is the metabolic product of protein, so to reduce this symptom, it is necessary for patient to avoid his excess protein intake. On the other hand, protein is an important nutrient for our body, so patient needs to restrict his protein intake according to his own condition. And asking help from his doctor and a dietitian is necessary.

Besides, if patient is already in the end stage of kidney failure, he may need to take dialysis or kidney transplant.

While if patient is in stage 4, it is better for patient to improve his kidney function to treat this problem. And Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is a good choice, because it is good at treating kidney disease, and it is also very helpful in improving patient’s kidney function.

As we know, Chinese medicine is good at treating disease systemically, and it aims at improving patient’s self-repairing ability to treat his disease.
