Metallic taste in mouth is one of performances after undergoing dialysis. Why does dialysis patients have this problem? Here we will help you find the reasons for metallic taste in mouth, hoping it can help you find the best therapy.
Dialysis is usually recommended to you, if your kidney disease develops into ESRD (end stage renal disease). Although dialysis can prolong lifetime to some extent for patients, for long-term benefits, dialysis does have some side effects on managing kidney disease. For instance, dialysis cannot completely remove urea and improve metabolic disorders. It is well known that enhancing kidney function from the root is critical to manging kidney disease. However, dialysis cannot improve kidney function from the root and it is easy to induce untoward effects, including metallic taste in mouth. When you read here, have you perhaps thought that is it related to kidney failure? The answer is “YES”.
When condition develops into ESRD, kidney function remains 15% or less, and kidney has lost nearly all abilities to function well, resulting in too much fluid, metabolic wastes and toxins build up in the body. For instance, if urea level increases, it will enter intestinal tract from blood vessels and under the function of urea enzyme, urea can be decomposed and then produce ammonia. This is one of reasons for metallic taste in mouth. Besides, it can be induced by ceratin drugs, such as antibiotics, antihypertensive drugs, antidepressant and so on. Generally speaking, loss of kidney function is the root cause of this problem. It is lucky that we have find alternative treatment for improving kidney function without dialysis.
