How Does Renal Failure Cause Epistaxis

How Does Renal Failure Cause EpistaxisBlood circulation disorders for renal failure patients mainly present renal anemia and bleeding tendency. Epistaxis or nose bleeding is just one sign of renal failure or uremia. How does kidney failure cause epistaxis? Is this symptom serious?

Epistaxis is usually attributed to renal failure because of deposits of urea, platelet dysfunction or dialysis.

Urea is excreted by kidneys. In uremic stage, a lot of urea builds up in the body that has a link with fatigue, poor appetite, decline of temperature, bleeding tendency, and other symptoms. Normally, arginine is metabolized by the liver to produce urea, glucocyamine and creatinine. However, when kidneys are damaged severely, urea and creatinine will build up in the body. In this time, arginine is decomposed through other methods and produces methylguanidine and guanidine arginine. These substances can shorten the lifespan of red blood cells, inhibit the production of EPO, and reduce blood platelet. Accordingly, epistaxis occurs easily.

Platelet dysfunction may be also due to iron deficiency, malnutrition and renal anemia. When blood platelet can’t play its coagulation and hemostasis function normally, nose bleeding will happen.

If patients have begun dialysis, this symptom may appear attributed to the use of heparin and damage to red blood cells.

In conclusion, epistaxis is mainly caused by deposits of waste products, low kidney function or dialysis. From this point, only if the internal body system is cleansed and enough red blood cells are produced, can epistaxis be alleviated from the root. Dialysis, blood purification and Clear Blood Pollution Therapy can help cleanse the blood circulation, while EPO therapy and eating foods rich in iron, folic acid and vitamin B12 can stimulate the production of red blood cells.
