Complications of chronic kidney disease

Greetings again! We have addressed different aspects related to chronic renal failure, such as its prevention, the main causes and common myths in our Hispanic community. This time, we will explore bone disease, anemia and lipid metabolism disorders, and how they can affect our health. Join us in this new chapter of our journey towards a healthy and complete kidney life!


Bone disease in chronic kidney disease


Bone disease is a common complication in chronic kidney disease due to dysregulation of calcium and phosphorus levels in the body. Bone loss, bone weakness and increased risk of fractures are some of the manifestations of this complication. It is important to work closely with our medical team to monitor mineral levels, such as calcium and phosphorus, and to make sure we receive enough vitamin D to keep our bones strong and healthy.

Anemia in chronic renal failure


Anemia is another common complication of chronic renal failure. Decreased production of the hormone erythropoietin by the kidneys and a lack of enough healthy red blood cells can lead to anemia. This can cause symptoms such as fatigue, weakness and lack of energy. Treatment may include iron supplements, drugs that stimulate red blood cell production and, in some cases, blood transfusions.

Disorders of lipid metabolism in chronic renal failure


Disorders of lipid metabolism, such as elevated cholesterol and triglycerides, are common in chronic renal failure. The kidneys play an important role in lipid metabolism, and their impaired function can lead to imbalances in blood cholesterol and triglyceride levels. Maintaining a healthy diet, exercising regularly and, in some cases, taking prescription medications can help control lipid levels and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.


Let’s take care of our health


Dear friends, it is important to be aware of the possible complications of chronic renal failure in order to properly address them and maintain our overall health. Bone disease, anemia and lipid metabolism disorders can be challenging, but with the support of our medical team and a proactive approach, we can work to minimize their impact on our lives. Let’s remember that taking care of our kidney health involves not only managing the disease itself, but also taking care of the associated complications. Let’s move forward, committed to our well-being and the pursuit of a healthy and fulfilling kidney life.
