2016-11-23 17:12

Dialysis Patient Got Serious Itching: What should I DoItching is a common complaint among dialysis patients, and it really affect the patient’s life greatly.

What are the Causes of itching among dialysis patients?

-Among dialysis patients, itching is most often caused by dry skin.

-Allergic reactions to the dialyzer, blood tubing or medications may occur during the dialysis treatment.

-Your diet can become another factor causing itching. In your blood, phosphorus combines with calcium to form phosphorus-calcium products. Some of these phosphorus-calcium products are excreted through your skin and this may cause you to itch.

What should patient do with serious itching?

A blood test can tell if you have a high level of parathyroid hormones (PTH). PTH levels are often elevated in dialysis patients due mainly to a decreased calcium level and an increased phosphorus level. This can not only cause itching, also bone diseases. Treatment includes controlling calcium and phosphorus levels with phosphate binders and taking vitamin D.
