Five Life-Threatening Complications of Kidney FailureSimply kidney failure is not terrible, but the following 5 complications are life threatening. If you still want to lead a normal life, you should take preventatives as early as possible.

1. Heart failure: hypertension, sodium retention, anemia, toxins, expansion of the heart, and decreased myocardial contractility can lead to heart failure.

2. Intracerebral hemorrhage (ich) : kidney patients are often associated with hypertension, and factors such as coagulation dysfunction and the use of heparin can induce cerebral hemorrhage.

3. Severe arrhythmia: arrhythmia is usually induced or aggravated by electrolyte and acid-base balance disorder, among which hyperkalemia and severe acidosis are the main causes.

4. Digestive tract hemorrhage: due to the stimulation of ammonia to the digestive tract, it causes gastrointestinal mucosa erosion, and coagulation disorders and sodium retention cause gastrointestinal mucosal edema. Erosion and edema can cause hemorrhage.

5. Infections, poisoning and shock.

How to prevent these complications and keep kidney function stable?

1. Dietary habit: kidney patients should stick to the diet habit of "low salt, low fat, low phosphorus, low potassium, low purine, and low amount of high quality protein diet". Daily salt intake is about 3-4 grams, and the diet should be balanced.

2. Self-discipline in life: quit bad habits such as smoking, drinking and staying up late. Keep regular hours and do aerobic exercise 2 to 3 times a week. Maintain a reasonable weight.

3. Moderate drinking is important. For patients with renal insufficiency, if not accompanied by edema, they can drink plenty of water to increase the amount of urine so as to discharge waste and toxins metabolized by the body. If acute nephritis, nephrotic syndrome, pyelonephritis and so on have obvious edema, the amount of drinking water is calculated according to the urine volume of yesterday +500ml, generally not exceeding 1000ml, and at the same time, the water content of food itself should be paid attention to. When chronic kidney disease patients have heart failure, water intake should be more strictly controlled, and the amount of water can also be calculated according to the urine volume of yesterday +500ml. It should be noted that a small amount of water should be drunk each time, divided into several times, and a large amount of water is strictly prohibited.
