Itching In Kidney Failure

Itching In Kidney FailureKidney failure patients can have many symptoms, among which itching is very common.While this complication can damage patients’ emotion and affect their life quality greatly.Patients need to have a better understanding about this aspect, which is helpful for patients to cope with their condition.

Why patients with kidney failure have itching?

Kidney is the organ that can remove out the harmful substances in our blood, so kidney failure can cause many disorders in patients’ body.

A major cause of itching is namely the accumulation of urea nitrogen. While that can cause patients’ sweat gland and sebaceous gland to atrophy, so patients will have dry skin and desquamation, which can cause patients to have itching,.

Another common reason of itching is the hyperfunction of parathyroid gland. Because patients often have the imbalance of phosphorus and calcium in their blood, which can cause the calcium level in patients’ blood increase. The accumulation of calcium in skin is a reason of itching. Besides, the parathyroid gland’s hypertension can also cause the mast cells in skin to excrete histamine, which is also a reason of itching.

Besides, patients with kidney failure will need to take many medicines, while some medicines can also stimulate patients’ body, and it is also a cause of patients’ itching.

What can patients do to relieve this condition?

Itching is not a good feeling, and as we have said, it can damage patients’ life quality greatly.

To relive this symptom, patients can apply cooling oil or frozen towels on their itching skin, and they can also cratch their skin, but avoid bleeding, which may cause infection. While if this symptom is caused by the hyperfunction of parathyroid gland, patients can choose to cut parathyroid glands off.

As we know, the root of itching is patients’ kidney damage, so to improve this condition thoroughly, patients need to improve their kidney function. Thereby, it is important for patients to choose the right diet plan, life habits and the treatment, and patients should take measures under their doctor and the dietitian’s guiding.
