When patients with nephropathy progress to Renal Failure, complications often occur, so the medication taken will increase, more than the normal period of Nephritis and Nephrotic Syndrome.
But most drugs need kidney excretion, which increases the burden of the kidney and the risk of drug-induced kidney damage. If you don't pay attention, taking drugs in your stomach will give the kidney a heavy blow. Therefore, patients with renal failure need to spend more energy to control the use of drugs, only eat what must be eaten.
What should I eat?
1. Take antihypertensive drugs, such as Sartan and pril, which have the functions of protecting kidney, heart and brain.
2. Take drugs to correct acidosis, such as sodium bicarbonate;
3. Drugs to correct renal anemia, such as erythropoietin (this is injection), iron (especially intravenous iron), etc.
4. Take drugs to correct the disorders of calcium, phosphorus and parathyroid hormones, such as phosphorus binders, vitamin D and its analogues, calcium mimetics, etc.
5. Eat diuretics, such as furosemide, to help control salt and water loads.
These five drugs are aimed at the five most common complications in patients with nephropathy. When the corresponding complications occur, they can stabilize the condition, protect the kidney and life safety.
What can't you eat?
1. Do not eat health care products. If patients with normal kidney function eat some health care products, I am not too opposed, health care products in the physiological and pathological aspects of no role, may be useful in psychology, but also as a gift to enhance feelings. However, the kidneys of patients with renal failure are very fragile and often lack money after serious illness. Taking health care products is self-destructive.
2. Don't take more cold medicine. "Don't eat more" means to avoid eating when the symptoms are mild and only one when the symptoms are obvious. Most cold medicines are similar in composition and contain non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (with nephrotoxicity). Overdose of cold medicines has become the most common drug-induced renal damage.
3. Don't take more stomach medicine. It refers to the Lazole drugs (proton pump inhibitors, PPI) that inhibit gastric acid. The number of patients with kidney damage caused by Lazole is second only to that caused by cold drugs. Don't take it without indication, and periodically evaluate whether it is possible to discontinue the drug during the course of taking it.
4. Try not to infuse. Although not eating, patients with renal failure have several more risks than the general population, which need to be emphasized. Normal saline is commonly used for infusion, but for patients with renal failure, it can raise blood pressure and increase the risk of Hyperchloric metabolic acidosis. In addition, the arm blood vessels of patients with renal failure may need dialysis for fistula in the future. Infusion will reduce vascular elasticity and damage vascular endothelium, which is the "lifesaving channel" of patients. If blocked, the loss will be great.
5. Avoid drugs with "unclear" side effects
The side effects of some drugs are not stated in the instructions, but only "unclear". In fact, some side effects of these drugs are clear, but the positive effects are really unclear.
If nephrotic friends occasionally need medication for other diseases, they must tell doctors about their own kidney situation, communicate more, adjust medication, and avoid drug-induced kidney damage.
