Hypoglycemia in ESRD (End Stage Renal Disease) Patients

2014-10-05 06:41

Hypoglycemia in ESRD (End Stage Renal Disease) PatientsHypoglycemia (low blood sugar level) is one of the symptoms of ESRD (End Stage Renal Disease) patients. Therefore, it is very important for ESRD patients to test their blood glucose level.

How does hypoglycemia occur in ESRD?

End Stage Renal Disease means your kidneys have been severely damaged and cannot function well. Damaged kidneys cannot inactivate the insulin which is the only hormone that control blood sugar level. As a result, blood sugar level declines. That’s why you have hypoglycemia.

In addition, damaged kidneys cannot secrete enough EPO (erythropoietin) which is very important for the generation of red blood cells, thus leading to Anemia. This is the other reason why hypoglycemia occurs.

How to make your blood sugar level under control?

1. Keep a balanced diet

Due to toxins accumulation, patients gastrointestinal tract is also attacked, leading to a poor appetite, nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea. Lack of nutrition can be also associated with low blood sugar level. That’s why I say you should keep a balanced diet. You can consult your doctor or dietitian.

2. Ask the healthcare team about eating a snack at bedtime to help keep blood sugar from dropping overnight.

3. Take a regular test of blood sugar

4. Improve kidney function

This is the most important, because the root cause of hypoglycemia in ESRD is the loss of kidney function. As long as there are medicines or therapies can improve blood circulation, supplying the kidneys with enough blood and oxygen, the kidneys can repair themselves so as to function normally.
