What are the misunderstandings in the understanding of uremia

 I believe that when the three words “uremia” are mentioned, everyone will definitely think that the patient suffering from this disease is a dying patient and a family in trouble. However, the terrible words “dialysis” and “kidney transplantation” as well as the huge medical expenses have left everyone hopeless for life. Indeed! Uremia, which is the terminal stage of renal failure caused by various primary or secondary chronic kidney diseases, is disgusting.   However, we still have to look at the major misunderstandings of uremia. Let’s take a look at the misunderstandings of uremia. Misunderstanding 1: Hormone can cure kidney disease. Many patients feel tired at the beginning of the onset and have heavy legs. After getting up in the morning, their face is swollen and looks like “fat”. When they go to the hospital for examination, they find protein or occult blood in the urine, which is confirmed as kidney disease. . Conventional treatment of nephropathy often uses oral hormones, tripterygium, cyclophosphamide and other drugs to control urine protein and occult blood. The treatment effect was obvious at the beginning, and the physical and chemical indicators quickly improved and disappeared, but when I encountered a cold, I was tired again. As a result, he started to use hormones again, repeating this way, getting worse one after another, and gradually showing symptoms of renal insufficiency such as nausea and vomiting. In fact, the reason is very simple. The appearance of protein and occult blood in urine is caused by serious damage to the glomerular basement membrane. Using some control drugs alone, the temporary disappearance of urine protein and occult blood does not mean that the kidney disease is cured. These hormonal drugs have obvious side effects. The symptoms do not cure the symptoms. The indicators decline today and will rise tomorrow. Misunderstanding 2: Decreased indicators prove improvement in kidney disease. For various early-stage kidney diseases, if only attention is paid to the control and treatment of urine protein, occult blood, white blood cells, and pus, and the indicators are simply lowered without treatment for the causes of kidney disease, kidneys will eventually appear The function declines, a large amount of toxins accumulate in the blood, and the blood creatinine and urea nitrogen continue to rise. The traditional treatment method believes that as long as the blood creatinine and urea nitrogen test indicators are reduced, the kidney disease will be controlled. So the patient was given oral detoxification drugs such as Ai Xte, starch, urine X Qing, Jin X Bao, Shen X Ning, etc., to reduce creatinine and urea nitrogen. However, it has neglected to repair the function of the severely diseased kidney itself. In this way, while taking these index-lowering drugs, the kidney will also be affected by a large number of drugs, and the kidney function will deteriorate rapidly, thus losing the very precious opportunity for treatment. The patient gradually developed severe anemia, frequent vomiting, inability to eat, anorexia, high blood pressure, significantly reduced urination, inability to sleep supine, chest tightness and suffocation and other symptoms of uremia, and had to embark on long-term hemodialysis or kidney transplantation.   Misunderstanding 3: Dialysis cannot get rid of   Western medicine believes that if uremia patients start hemodialysis, it is impossible to get rid of it, but the facts are not always the case. Because everyone’s primary disease is different, the causes and triggers of uremia are not exactly the same. If effective methods can be taken to treat the primary disease and remove the inducement, it is entirely possible to get rid of hemodialysis. Before hemodialysis, many patients have a long-term stable condition, and their blood creatinine and uremic nitrogen are relatively stable, not to the point where dialysis is necessary. The remaining kidney function is still considerable, but it is often due to colds, fevers, and lung infections. , Diarrhea enteritis, urinary infection, poor control of high blood pressure, trauma or disputes with others, emotional excitement, or work fatigue without paying attention to rest, etc., resulting in deterioration of the condition and dialysis. In this case, it is completely possible to take renal cell regeneration therapy to solve the primary disease, so that the patient can extend the time between dialysis and finally get rid of dialysis. If you do not seize the opportunity to quickly and correctly treat the nephron, a large number of necrosis will eventually be irreversible, and you will have to rely on dialysis. The huge cost and discomfort brought about by dialysis have become an unbearable burden for kidney patients and their families.  Misunderstanding 4: Kidney transplantation, the best solution   In recent years, the media has promoted tragic stories about kidney transplantation and other organ transplants, which makes many people think of kidney transplantation when they hear of uremia.   In fact, very few people are lucky enough to have a successful kidney transplant because there are too few kidney sources. If they are not provided by their immediate family members, according to our country’s laws, there are too few opportunities to wait for a cadaver kidney and successfully match the kidney. Moreover, not every transplant can be successful. In case of failure, the patient will continue to receive dialysis treatment or even face another kidney transplant. There are some diseases that are not recommended for kidney transplantation, such as some patients with chronic hepatitis or liver dysfunction
