For most of ESRD patient, hypocalcemia is the main cause of their cramps. There will make a list of the several causes of hypocalcemia in ESRD. Based on these causes, we can find proper measures to rectify calcium deficiency in the body and prevent and relieve muscle twitching as far as possible.
1. Reduced Vitamin D in body.
During ESRD, diet restriction, poor appetite, digestive and gastrointestinal disorders are all the reasons of this. So to take a strict and healthy diet is beneficial for patients.
2. High blood phosphorus levels.
Reduced GFR (Glomerular Filtration Rate) will lead to the increased blood phosphorus and aggravate low blood calcium, worsening cramp. In this case, Dialysis can accordingly reduce this condition and relieve cramps.
3. Some diuretics will also lead to or exacerbate this symptom.
So to increase the urine volume in some natural ways is crucial for ESRD patients to maintain their disease and prolong their life.
Worse, in some cases, muscle twitching will not be controlled even though they take calcium supplement. This means that the muscle twitching is not only caused by hypocalcemia, it might be also caused by neurologic disorders in the brain.
