CKD,called Chronic Kidney Disease,is a progressive loss of renal function over several months or years. If there are no timely and effective treatments,some severe symptoms and complications will be caused and aggravate the deterioration of kidney disease. The bad news is that there are no specific treatments that can be taken to treat kidney disease.
In clinic,creatinine can reflect the renal parenchyma injury more accurately,so doctors regard it as a important indicator to check the patients renal function. But it is not a sensitive indicator. Creatinine will be increased obviously if patients GFR (Glomerular Filtration Rate) drops into normal 1/3. In other words,once patients are diagnosed with high creatinine,their disease condition is not optimistic. Creatinine 8.36 means that the patients kidney damage has worsen into stage 5,that is ESRD.
Hyperkalemia is a common symptom caused by ESRD. In the medical profession,it is identified that hyperkalemia is one of the most important causes of CHD (coronary heart disease). Actually,hyperkalemia will mainly damage the patients cardiovascular system and neuromuscular system. Besides,it may also cause metabolic acidosis.
