Can you recall that what medication was taken on the date you were diagnosed with kidney disease was specifically for kidney disease? The hormones you eat, tacrolimus, cyclophosphamide, cyclosporine, etc. are immunosuppressants that are directed against the immune system.
There are several cardiovascular drugs in your medication that are used to prevent kidney damage caused by high blood pressure, high blood sugar, high blood lipids, and environmental pollution. Many patients with uremia eventually die not because of kidney failure but because of a series of complications such as heart failure. It is the most deadly when complications occur and it is difficult to control.
Why does kidney disease cause cardiovascular disease?
1. Impaired renal function, the function of regulating sodium and sodium will be affected, water sodium will stay in the body, increase the burden on the heart, cause ventricular hypertrophy, heart failure and other serious conditions.
2. Renal diseases can also cause various metabolic disorders, such as abnormal lipid metabolism, abnormal calcium and phosphorus metabolism, hyperphosphatemia, etc. These are all cardiovascular risk factors, and severe ones can cause sudden death. Therefore, cardiovascular disease is an important disease that we cannot ignore.
How to prevent cardiovascular diseases?
1, first regularly monitor blood pressure, blood lipids, blood sugar and other indicators.
2. Actively control risk factors such as hypertension, hyperlipidemia, and diabetes, which are likely to induce cardiovascular disease. Get rid of bad habits such as tobacco and alcohol to ensure adequate sleep and stay up late.
3. Actively treat chronic kidney disease related complications such as anemia, abnormal calcium and phosphorus metabolism, and on the one hand treat the kidney disease itself, on the other hand, aim at the treatment of cardiovascular diseases.
4, to develop good eating habits, adhere to a low-fat, low-salt, low-sugar healthy diet, appropriate taboos, adequate supplements such as quality protein: milk, eggs, lean meat and so on.
