Does Itching Only Happen With ESRD PatientsOur kidney is one of the most important organs of our body, because it is responsible for keeping the water, acid-base, electrolyte balance of the whole body. Once it is damaged, the normal metabolic order will be disturbed and other organs or systems will be affected. Itchiness is a skin problem that may be caused by loss of kidney function. For ESRD (End Stage Renal Disease) patients, itchy skin is not rare. However, does itching only happen in ESRD patients? The answer is “no”. If you know the reason why itching occur, you will know why I say “no”.

Why does itching happen with kidney disease?

For patients with kidney disease, not only ESRD patients but also patients with other kinds of renal disease like Lupus Nephritis, Diabetic Nephrology, IgA Nephrology, and so on. All these kidney disease can make kidney function loss when they progress into advanced stages. At the advanced stage, excessive wastes and toxins such as creatinine and urea nitrogen, cannot be filtered by kidneys adequately. Those substances deposit in the skin and then cause itchiness.

What’s more, damaged kidneys cannot keep the electrolyte balance, so patients with kidney disease will find that some electrolyte level in the blood is abnormally higher or lower than the normal range. If the serum phosphorous level elevates and is more than the normal value (3.5-5.5mg/dl), it will increase the risk of itching.

To sum up, not only ESRD patient but also patients with other renal disease have the possibility of having itching.

How to relieve itching in ESRD patients?

For all patients with renal disease, the solution of relieve itching is to improve the glomerular filtration rate (GFR) in order to remove the excessive phosphorous level in the blood. You may as well try Medicated Bath. It is based on traditional Chinese medicines. Nowadays, more and more clinical practices have prove the significant effects of the use of Chinese medicines in treating renal disease. As it is more natural and safe, more and more patients begin to take therapies that are based on Chinese medicines.
