Is Severe Skin Itching a Sign of Death in End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD)

Is Severe Skin Itching a Sign of Death in End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD)Is severe skin itching a sign of death in end stage renal disease (ESRD)? As we know, end stage renal disease means patients have very severe kidney damage and low kidney function, and patients will have some severe symptoms and complications with the low kidney function. Severe skin itching is a common one, which will affect the normal life for ESRD patients, so they think the itching will make them dead. In the following article, we will get further understanding of the severe skin itching and ESRD.

First: what can cause skin itching in ESRD?

In ESRD, patients have severe kidney damage, so the kidneys will fail to work well. It can cause too much toxins and wastes building up in blood, which can stimulate the skin system and cause the symptoms such as skin itching, dry skin and skin rashes. In addition, the low kidney function can also cause high phosphorus level in blood, which can also lead to skin itching. Patients with ESRD usually have severe skin itching which will affect their normal life and make them crazy. However, if patients can get effective treatment to repair their kidney damage and improve their kidney function, the skin itching can disappear naturally.

Second: what should be the treatment for skin itching in ESRD?

1. Dialysis

This is the most directly treatment for skin itching in ESRD. Dialysis can remove toxins and wastes out, lower high phosphorus level and purify blood, so it can control the skin itching to some extent. However, once patients stop dialysis, the toxins and wastes will build up in blood again, so it cant stop the skin itching from root.

2. Full Bath Therapy

We put many Chinese medicines in the medicated soup, and let patients take full bath, this can help remove toxins and wastes out for patients. And it can also help relieve the skin itching effectively for patients.

3. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy

This is an external and herbal based treatment, and it has the function of repairing damaged kidney tissues and improving kidney function for patients. Once the kidney function is improved, it can help stop the skin itching from root.

So, severe skin itching can be controlled well with effective treatment, so ESRD patients need to take early treatment, which can make a good prognosis for them.
