Mouth sores even though is not common among Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) patients but occur in some cases. Can hypertensive medication CKD patients used cause mouth sores?
Causes of mouth sores in CKD
Mouth sores usually occur by bacteria invasion. Impaired kidneys fail to remove wastes and toxins adequately. As a result, there are many harmful substances accumulating in many parts of the body. Some related mouth problems include dry mouth, bad taste, insidious bleeding from the mouth. In that case, mouth sores can also occur.
Can hypertensive medicines cause mouth sores?
Hypertensive medicines used for Chronic Kidney Disease patients are not totally safe. While helpful, they also produce some by-products that should be discharged by the kidneys. Then, the impaired kidneys are burdened, so they might lose more function that will lead to low immunity. This makes your body easy to be attacked by bacteria, thus causing mouth sores.
Therefore, hypertensive medicines won’t cause mouth sores directs, but indeed aggravate this issue.
How to get rid of mouth sores with Chronic Kidney Disease?
● Drink plenty of water if you do not have swelling.
● Avoid hot beverages and foods, spicy and salty foods, and citrus.
● Eat fruit-flavored ice pops.
● Take pain relievers like acetaminophen.
● Using a soft-bristle toothbrush.
These above methods can help you prevent the aggravation of mouth sores, but cannot solve the underlying problem. Since the impaired kidney function is the culprit, to enhance renal function is the key of treatment. In that case, I recommend you to take Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and natural therapies like Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, and Acupuncture, etc. Medicines used and methods taken should be based on your own condition.
