Could Potassium Prescribed for Cramps Have Aggravated CKDMuscle cramps occur frequently in patients with advanced Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD). Could potassium prescribed for cramps have aggravated CKD?

Potassium and CKD

When kidneys are damaged, they cannot filter excess minerals such as potassium and phosphorous. High potassium levels in the blood may cause abnormal heart rate, shortness of breath and muscle soreness and weakness, etc.

If you want to know whether the prescribed supplements or medicines are damaging your kidneys, you’d better take a blood test. You can send the test report to us at or leave a message below. Our doctor on duty will reply you within 24 hours, providing you some suggestions for free.

Alternative medicines for muscle cramps in Chronic Kidney Disease

Muscle cramps occur frequently in patients with Chronic Kidney Disease. It can involve the legs, most commonly in feet, but cal also involve arms and hands, as well as abdominal muscles. It is can be caused by imbalance in fluid and electrolytes, or by nerve damage or blood flow problems. Over-the-counter medicines may do nothing but cause side effects for patients. In that case, I recommend you to take traditional Chinese medicines.

Maikang composition, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath and Foot Bath are all innovated from traditional Chinese herbs, and can be used for Chronic Kidney Disease patients. They can help relieve symptoms by improving renal function.

They have the function of expanding blood vessels, fighting against inflammation and degrading extracellular matrixes. Then, kidneys can get enough blood volume and oxygen to repair the damaged tissues, thus improving renal function. Then, kidneys can work normally to keep fluid and electrolyte balance, regulate blood pressure and filter the blood, etc.
