Most kidney patients are afraid of the condition to become uremia, because with uremia, they have to do dialysis for lifelong to maintain their life.

But it also shows that uremia is not a fatal disease. So why do uremia patients generally die early?

Because heart and kidney is an organic whole. When the kidneys of patients is threatened by uremia, a fatal disease - cardiovascular disease often occurs.

Cardiovascular diseases account for 45% to 60% of uremia deaths, accounting for the largest proportion, followed by severe infection, cerebrovascular accident, gastrointestinal hemorrhage, hyperkalemia, etc.

Cardiovascular diseases, including heart failure, arrhythmia, pericarditis, angina and myocardial infarction, are mainly associated with plaque buildup in the arterial wall of patients with kidney disease.

Recent studies have found that adverse cardiovascular events and atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease in uremia patients are about 15-20 times higher than in the general population.

Reducing the risk of heart disease includes the following aspects:

1. Reduce blood pressure

2. Low-fat diets, especially foods high in saturated fat

3. Eat plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables (except those at high risk for blood potassium)

4. Exercise.

5. Quit smoking and drinking

Among them, lowering pressure is the first. High blood pressure, the leading cause of cardiovascular disease, is associated with 60 percent of kidney patients.
