Chronic kidney disease (CKD) presents a lot of symptoms, such as weakness, changes of urine color and volume, high blood pressure, proteinuria, hematuria, and loss of appetite. Poor appetite decreases the absorption of nutrients, which makes patients weaker and weaker.
Reasons for appetite loss in CKD
Kidney shoulders the function of filtering wastes and toxins out of the body. When it gets damaged, the toxins and wastes cannot all be removed out. Accordingly, the toxins and wastes will accumulate in body, which will affect appetite. Meanwhile, long time taking western drugs or herbal medicine attributes to poor appetite.
Measures to improve appetite
A proper diet plan
What patients drink and eat matters a lot to the condition. A proper diet plan improves the condition. On the contrary, an improper diet aggravates the situation. The dietary principle for CKD patients is low protein intake, low sodium, low fluid, low fat, rich vitamin, and high fiber. The diet supplies enough calories and produces less metabolic wastes, which decreases burdens to kidney and alleviates the condition of poor appetite.
Regular exercise boosts immune system, improves blood circulation, and reinforces habitus. It can accelerate the filtration of wastes and toxins in blood, which contributes to improving appetite.
Appetite loss is mainly caused by kidney function damage. Improving kidney function is the fundamental way to alleviate poor appetite. Comprehensive therapy includes osmosis and a series methods of TCM, which helps a lot to improve kidney function. For example, medicated bath, enema therapy, circle therapy, acupuncture and moxibustion help improve blood circulation and alleviate poor appetite. Osmosis and herbal medicine work together to repair the damaged but not necrotic kidney function. Once kidney function gets improved, poor appetite can be alleviated.
