Cause of ESRD Complicated With Heart Failure

Cause of ESRD Complicated With Heart FailureHere we will mostly introduce causes of heart failure led to by end stage kidney disease (ESRD). Heart failure is very likely to occur at ESRD, what is worse, heart failure can threaten patients’ life very much, and is the most leading cause of death for patients with ESRD. Now see the points:

There are 8 major factors which result in heart failure.

1. Hypervolemia

For patients with ESRD, the volume of blood in body elevates, making elevation of left ventricular end-diastolic capacity and cardiac output. In this way, due to decreased function of left ventricular, heart disease is very prone to occurring.

2. High blood pressure

High blood pressure is a very common symptoms of ESRD, which can put more pressure on heart. In this way, ventricular wall hypertrophy and heart enlargement is caused. Thus, heart failure will occur. In addition, high blood pressure increases the risk of atherosclerosis, which also may cause heart disease.

3. Uremic toxins

Many uremic toxins deposit in body at ESRD, having bad effects on cardiac muscle and resulting in cardiomyopathy. In this case, myocardial contractile will be affected and decline, leading to heart disease.

4. Electrolyte disorders and acidosis

As is known to us, electrolyte disorders and acidosis are resulted in at ESRD, which can affect cardiac excitability. In this way, cardiac arrhythmia and heart disease are very likely to occur.

5. Anemia

As anemia lasts for a long time at ESRD, cardiac myocardial anoxia may occur. Thus, heart is affected, resulting in heart diease.

6. Arteriovenous fistula on dialysis

Dialysis is alway needed for patients with ESRD. Due to large inflow of blood, cardiac can be carried more burdens, thus, heart failure can be caused.

7. Atherosclerosis

Due to high blood pressure and hyperlipemia follow ESRD very closely, atherosclerosis is very easy to occur, resulting in heart disease.

8. Weak immunity

As patients with ESRD have weak immunity, Myocarditis or pericardium are very possible to happen. In this way, heart failure may occurs on patients with ESRD.

The above factors should be taken much notice of by patients with ESRD, which can help them prevent heart failure from occurring. As for how to help treat these causes of heart failure to reduce the risk of heart failure, you can contact us freely or leave a message and we will give you a specific and scientific answer.
