Is Nose Bleeding Common in Kidney Failure

Is Nose Bleeding Common in Kidney FailureKidney Failure, especially uremic, can provoke various symptoms and problems. Among them, nose bleeding is quite common in kidney failure that must make suffers worried. Why do renal failure patients have nose bleeding?

Generally speaking, bleeding tendency has a close link with blood platelet disorders and hyperkalemia. Following, you can learn how these two conditions cause nose bleeding or digestive tract bleeding.

1. Blood platelet disorders and nose bleeding

Blood platelet is the most small cells in the blood, and its main function is hemostasis and coagulation. Normally, the average lifespan of blood platelet is 7~14 days. In Kidney Failure, urea, excreted by kidneys, will accumulate in the body. Too much deposit of urea has an intimate link with bleeding tendency, fatigue, poor appetite, low temperature, etc, because it can kill blood platelet as well as other blood cells.

2. Hyperkalemia

When patients’ GFR is 20~25ml/min or less, kidneys’ ability to discharge potassium will decline gradually. In this case, patients are more prone to having acidosis, infections, trauma, bleeding tendency and some other problems.

Now, we have known the causes of nose bleeding in Kidney Failure. The next thing we need to do is to control it. Otherwise, it may cause more severe problems.

To eliminate extra urea and potassium, dialysis is helpful, because dialysis can help flush out small molecular substances effectively. However, some patients find this doesn’t work very well to ease their nose bleeding. On the contrary, their nose may bleed more serious. The reason is that dialyzate especially hemodialysis contains heparin that has anti-coagulation function, so as to curb the stopping of nose bleeding. Thereby, some other treatments are needed.

In clinic, dialysis isn’t the only method that can help replace kidneys to eliminate waste products. In fact, you have better choices. For example, plasma exchange, hemofiltration, immune adsorption and CRRT, all can not only help remove extra urea and potassium but also supply some essential nutritions.
