In the treatment of uremia, these 6 common misunderstandings should be understood so as not to delay the disease

When it comes to uremia, I believe everyone is familiar with it. However, due to the lack of medical knowledge and media reports such as TV and the Internet, many people are very "frightened" of uremia. In the process, it is easier to fall into some misunderstandings, which will affect the treatment of the disease. In order to better treat the disease, it is necessary to correctly understand these misunderstandings. Several common misunderstandings of uremia treatment? Myth 1: Uremia is an incurable disease Many people think that uremia is an incurable disease, and they are very desperate after the disease. In fact, the current medical technology can already replace the excretory function of the kidneys through dialysis. As long as the patient actively cooperates with the doctor's treatment, uses the medicine rationally, and insists on dialysis, he can maintain his life for a long time. Some data show that clinically many patients can survive for more than 20 years through dialysis. Misunderstanding 2: Believe in folk remedies Uremia can control the disease and survive for a long time through scientific medication, but some patients listen to advertisements and blindly use various remedies for treatment, which not only delays the treatment of the disease, but even aggravates the disease, and eventually regrets it . Misunderstanding 3: The best way to treat uremia on kidney transplantation Some people will eagerly want to have a kidney transplant after suffering from uremia. In fact, there are not many cases of successful kidney transplantation in uremia. There are three main reasons for this: the lack of kidney resources , It is difficult to match successfully, the success rate of transplantation is low, and many uremia patients have abnormal liver function, peptic ulcer, urinary tract infection and other problems at the same time, and are not suitable for kidney transplantation. Misunderstanding 4: Abusing hormones A considerable number of kidney disease patients will control urine protein through oral hormone therapy. It is undeniable that hormone therapy can achieve obvious results in the early stage; various indicators can also improve in a short time, but this is only a temporary cure If the root cause is not cured, the patient's condition is not fundamentally cured, and it will recur in the later stage. And the abuse of hormones can also increase the burden on the kidneys, and even aggravate the condition of uremia. Misunderstanding 5: The decrease in indicators indicates that the kidney disease has improved. If the early stage of kidney disease only focuses on the control of urinary protein, white blood cells, occult blood and other indicators, and does not pay attention to the reasons behind the targeted treatment of kidney disease, it will eventually lead to a gradual decline in kidney function and a large amount of toxins in the blood. Accumulation, resulting in increased serum creatinine and blood urea nitrogen. Some patients think that the decrease of serum creatinine and blood urea nitrogen indicators means that the kidney disease has improved. This idea is wrong. If you don’t pay attention to the lesions of the kidney itself, just blindly using drugs that can reduce the indicators will only increase the burden on the kidneys and make the disease worse. Myth 6: Dialysis-addicted patients with uremia have lost their kidney function. Only by regular dialysis can the metabolites and water in the body be excreted from the body. Otherwise, harmful substances will accumulate in the body, which can seriously endanger health. Many people think that dialysis is addictive, which is nonsense. Dialysis is a need for treatment, not addiction, and if a suitable kidney transplant is found, dialysis can be stopped. The treatment of uremia is a long-term process. Only by actively cooperating with the doctor can the patient's condition be better controlled. If you fall into the above treatment errors, it will easily affect the treatment effect and even aggravate the condition. This is the patient's special attention. of. In addition, in addition to the treatment of uremia, it is also necessary to do a good job in life conditioning, especially in the diet to eat less food that can increase the burden on the kidneys, so as not to aggravate the disease.
