Hair Falling out and Kidney Failure: Causes and Treatment

Hair Falling out and Kidney Failure: Causes and TreatmentIf your hair is falling out with Kidney Failure, you are probably anxious to find out why. In this article today, I would share with you: why does it happen, and what could be done to treat the condition and keep things from getting worse.

Causes of hair falling out in Kidney Failure

For some people with kidney problems, hair loss can occur before starting Dialysis, or it may happen after being on dialysis. Reasons for this problem may include:

* Malnutrition. Hair is made up of protein. People with renal failure may not get sufficient protein, vitamins, and other nutrients due to diet limitations and/or losses of vitamins during dialysis. Other causes also include deficient in zinc, calcium, iron, and B vitamins.

* Dialysis-related amyloidosis. This occurs in patients receiving hemodialysis. During the treatment, a certain type of protein accumulated in the blood. As a result, molecules join together and form large amyloid deposits. The normal protein supply in the body is hindered, causing hair falling out.

* Medicines. Certain medicines can also cause hair loss. Talk to your nephrologists and confirm if medicines you are taking are related to this problem. Switching the dialysis modality can also cause changes in hair.

Treatment for hair falling out in Kidney Failure

The treatments involved a balanced diet, the use of medication (depends on the type and severity of hair loss), take supplements prescribed by dietitian, avoid hairstyle which involve a lot of pulling, twisting or rubbing of the hair, use the right hair care products, etc. If you still have any question about Kidney Failure, feel free to type your doubt in the below message board.
