Why Skin Gets Darker in Kidney Failure Patients

Why Skin Gets Darker in Kidney Failure PatientsMany organs and systems are easily involved in Kidney Failure, so is skin. In addition to skin itching and dry skin, dark skin is another annoying skin changes for renal failure patients. Why skin gets darker on Kidney Failure patients? What should they do?

Skin getting darker is closely associated with one pigment, called urochrome. Normally, healthy kidneys can help excrete this pigment. However, with kidney failure, a large part of kidney function has been lost, so kidneys are unable to eliminate urochrome successfully, resulting in the deposits of urochrome in the skin. From this analysis, we can know low kidney function is the root cause of dark skin for kidney failure patients.

How to deal with this skin problem for Kidney Failure patients?

Kidney patients who suffer from darker skin find that their skin color isn’t alleviated with the onset of dialysis. That is to say, dialysis is unable to help filter out urochrome. From this point, other treatment is needed to deal with dark skin. If you happen to have darker skin, you can choose one of the following treatments with the online doctor’s guidance.

1. Plasma Exchange: This blood purification method can help filter out moderate and large molecular waste products, so it can help improve kidney patients’ skin problem.

2. CRRT: It refers to continuous renal replacement therapy. This method can not only cleanse the polluted blood but also maintain the balance of blood circulation, so it is another choice for preventing skin from getting darker.

3. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy: During this therapy, some medicines with strong activity can combine, split and discharge waste products and toxins from the body. Different from the above methods, this therapy is also able to repair damaged kidney cells and rebuild kidney structure. When kidney function increases successfully, kidney failure patients’ overall health as well as skin can be improved successfully.

These treatments are helpful to deal with dark skin for renal failure patients. Tell more about your illness condition for doctor online, so he can help you determine which treatment is best for you.
