Recognize the SymptomsEspecially for those of you who experience kidney disease, both of which occur in a chronic (prolonged) or acute (rapid) process, you should be aware if you experience uremia symptoms such as:
- Nausea and vomiting
- Loss of appetite or weight loss
- Having cramps in the legs
- Difficult to concentrate
- Experiencing extreme fatigue (fatigue)
- Bleeding is not normal
- Hard to breathe
- Changes in mental conditions, such as confusion, anxiety, decreased consciousness.
How to Treat UremiaTreatment of uremia is through dialysis or dialysis. Usually, the doctor will recommend dialysis to remove metabolic waste and poisons from the bloodstream. This action is done to relieve symptoms arising from uremia. Dialysis is divided into two parts, namely hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis, which can be performed until the normal kidney function has been successfully restored.
The process of hemodialysis dialysis is carried out using two tubes separated by a filter machine. Blood will flow from the body through the first tube to the filter machine. After filtering, blood is flowed back into the body through a second tube. The process of hemodialysis takes at least about 4 hours and can only be done in a hospital. Some side effects that may be felt by the patient are itchy skin and cramps in the muscles.
In medical peritoneal dialysis, the process of washing the blood is done using a permanent catheter in the abdominal cavity, so it does not require a filter. This action can be done at home, and needs to be done routinely. Takes 30-40 minutes, peritoneal dialysis is recommended to be done four times a day.
