Can Renal Failure Cause Joint Stiffness and Pain

Can Renal Failure Cause Joint Stiffness and PainSome Renal Failure patients suffer a lot from joint stiffness and pain, but they don't know whether this problem is associated with failed kidneys. To make sure they can take effective treatments to manage their problems, they should firstly find out the underlying cause.

As introduced by doctors, joint stiffness is usually caused by swelling, repeated damage, infections, arthritis, and so on. In most cases, swelling won't cause pain unless the condition is very severe. For Kidney Failure patients, this problem is due to extra fluid retention in the body. If joint stiffness and pain is caused by infections and arthritis, the root cause is low immunity and kidney function level. As for repeated damage, it has no relation with kidney failure.

According to the underlying cause, patients should take corresponding managements to deal with their joint stiffness and pain.

If it is caused by severe swelling, the key is to increasing fluid excretion amount.

A modified diet plan and correct medications can help deal with patients' fluid retention. On one hand, patients should limit their fluid and sodium intake. On the other hand, they should take some medications, such as diuretics, ACEI, ARBs, etc, to manage their swelling.

If it is caused by infections, treatments that can improve patients' immune ability are needed.

To manage infections effectively and timely, patients may need to take antibiotics. Then, Medicated Bath, Acupuncture, Foot Bath, Cycle Therapy, Chinese Herbal Medicine, etc, can help regulate the internal environment and boost patients' immune ability.

If joint stiffness and pain is caused by arthritis, treatments that can inhibit inflammatory reactions and excrete uric acid should be taken.

NSAID can help ease arthritis to some extent, but to treat this disease from the root, some medications can increase uric acid excretion amount are needed.
