Why Kidney Failure Can Cause Dehydration or EdemaWhy kidney failure can cause dehydration, edema or swelling? The following information is related to this question. Here is a real case that I would like to share with you. Read on more information.

A month ago, a 60 years old man was diagnosed with chronical kidney failure.he was troubled by this disease. And then he was admitted to the hospital to take a better treatment. But since last week, he found his legs began to appear edema or dehydration every afternoon. At the beginning, this symptoms is not obvious, but it becomes more and more serious recently. Therefore, the old man don’t dare to drink water. But even so, the edema in his legs are still not alleviated. So he visited his doctors to ask for help.

Originally, edema is the symptom of chronic kidney failure. The patients with kidney failure may experience swelling, edema and dehydration. This is mainly due to the impaired renal tubular function of renal failure patients and the lost enrichment function.

For the patients with kidney failure, even if you don't drink, you also can discharge a large amount of dilute urine. As a result, thirsty and dehydration symptoms will occur. If you can not provide the water timely, the decrease of renal blood flow and renal ischemia may appear. What’s worse, it may increase the renal damage. In this case, replenishing water is more important than taking medicine.

On the other hand, the the renal excretion ability is poor, too much water intake accumulates in the body. Thus, it causes little amount of urine, gain weight and edema. Hence, weighing yourself everyday and taking a note of your 24 hours urine and amount of other waste are the crucial observation index.

Because of the everyone’s physical difference, the kidney disease performance is also different. But my dear friend, if you have several of them in the above symptoms, the kidney disease will be harmful to our health. Kidney is our vital organs and we should pay attention to kidney health. I wish you recover at an early date.
