Treatment of Skin Itching for CKD PatientsSkin itching is a common symptom of CKD patients, especially kidney failure patients. It greatly decreases the patients’ living quality, or even affects the treatment effects. What to do? In this article, I will tell you the treatment.

Causes of skin itching

It usually results from high blood phosphorus level. Researches show that when kidney function is normal or slightly damaged, your kidneys are still able to regulate the phosphorus metabolism. But when creatinine level elevates to over 200, high phosphorus easily occurs.

Dangers of high phosphorus level

It does not only cause skin itching, but also low calcium level so as to cause bone calcification dysfunction, which in turn can give rise to secondary hyperparathyroidism (SHPT), a common complication of kidney failure.

What range should blood phosphorus level be controlled into for kidney patients?

When blood phosphorus level is higher than 1.45 mmol/L, it is called high blood phosphorus. It should be attached importance when your disease develops to stage 3.

Stage 3-stage 5(not start dialysis yet): blood phosphorus level should be controlled into 0.87-1.45mmol/L.

Stage 5(have started dialysis): it should be controlled into 1.13-1.78mmol/L.

How to control blood phosphorus level for CKD patients?

Firstly, control it from diet. But it does not mean you should avoid phosphorus intake. For example, meat. It is high quality protein, but it is also rich in phosphorus. In such a case, you had better boil it and then cook it, which can help relieve the phosphorus level greatly.

Secondly, you should do tests to make sure it is skin itching caused by uremia or not. If it is, you should improve dialysis quality. If it is not, you can treat it as specific skin disease. Here we recommend you a natural treatment, which is named Medicated Bath. It can help you relieve skin itching. If you combine this therapy with other Chinese medicine, such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Foot Bath, oral Chinese medicine and so on, your kidneys will gradually repair themselves to certain extent and improve kidney function. With the improvement of kidney function, associated symptoms will get under control.
