Why Do Kidney Failure Patients Have Frequent Headache

Why Do Kidney Failure Patients Have Frequent HeadacheKidney Failure is the end stage of kidney disease. Because kidneys nearly lose all of their ability to filter blood, patients with kidney failure must have a lot of health problems. Headache is just one bothersome complication of end stage renal disease. Why do these patients have frequent headache?

As we all know kidneys have five basic functions: producing urine, regulating blood pressure, maintaining acid-base balance, keeping electrolyte balance and producing EPO. With the aggravation of kidney disease, kidneys lose more and more functions to work. Then, a series of problems will appear. Some of them can induce frequent headache easily.

- Fluctuated blood pressure: The fluctuation of blood pressure is always one big concern for many kidney failure patients, because of fluid and sodium retention or RAS system disorder. When blood flows into brain, big pressure against blood vessels in brain will induce headache.

- Buildup of waste products and toxins: In end stage kidney failure, kidneys are unable to filter blood normally. The accumulation of these harmful substances will attack nerve in the body including brain nerve.

- Brain aneurysm: End stage kidney failure can be caused by many disorders. If it is caused by Polycystic Kidney Disease, brain aneurysm may be the underlying cause of headache.

- Fever: Because of low immune ability, kidney failure patients are at a high risk of infections, fever and cold. If patients have fever, headache may accompany.

If you happen to experience frequent headache and kidney failure, you should check with the doctor online to determine which is the underlying cause of this problem. Then, doctors will suggest you to take corresponding methods. Besides, it is also necessary to follow a correct treatment plan to boost your kidney condition and overall health condition.
