The Main Cause of Death for Uremia Patients - Heart DiseaseIf you have kidney disease, what you fear most is the development of uremia. Many people believe that uremia is the death killer of kidney patients, but is it really true?

Studies have shown that the most common causes of death in patients with uremia is cardiovascular disease, followed by gastrointestinal bleeding, hyperkalemia, severe infections, and cerebrovascular accidents, etc.

However, there is no significant correlation between the death and age, sex, creatinine value, renal anemia and urinary tract infection.

Heart disease (angina, heart failure, arrhythmia, myocardial infarction, etc.) is the main cause of death for patients with chronic kidney disease in China and even in the world.

As plaque builds up in the wall of the kidney patients’ artery, the heart's coronary artery narrows, causing a heart attack. In addition, inflammation, edema and other factors also have an impact.

To avoid death caused by heart disease, renal patients should reduce the risk of heart disease by a healthy diet, a good lifestyle and standard treatment, which include less salt and low fat diet, more fresh fruit and vegetables (those with a high risk of blood potassium are excluded), appropriate exercise, quitting smoking and drinking, taking medicine under the guidance of doctors, good control of blood sugar, blood pressure and blood cholesterol, etc.

When you have the following symptoms, be alert to the onset of heart disease.

1. Nausea, dizziness or cold sweat

2. Chest pain, chest tightness, or discomfort

3. Difficult in breath

4. Some patients may have pain or discomfort in the jaw, arm, neck or upper abdomen.

If the above manifestations occur, kidney patients should immediately seek medical examination to determine whether it is a heart disease. In case something happens, it is easy to miss the best treatment opportunity.

Finally, getting kidney disease doesn't kill you.

The deaths are often linked to heart disease. Therefore, kidney patients must protect the heart at the same time of kidney disease treatment. Once any associated symptoms appear, early diagnosis and treatment can help avoid serious consequences.
