“I have Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD), why would my right leg go numb?”. This is a question from our mail box firstname.lastname@example.org. Kidney patients will suffer from various symptoms and numb leg is one of the complications. Well then, what is the cause and treatment for numb legs in CKD?
1. The cause of numb legs in CKD
In kidney disease, it will cuase excessive accumulation of metabolic wastes and toxins. This condition can trigger uremic peripheral neuropathy. When kidney disease progresses to end stage and GFR is below 12ml/min, patients can feel numbness, stinging pain and itching.
2. What is the treatment for numb legs in CKD?
The radical treatment for leg numbness in CKD is to remove wastes and toxins from your blood so as to improve renal function naturally. Dialysis is one way, which can replace injured kidneys to filter some wastes and toxins out. This can relieve uremic perpheral neuropathy and then you can feel better with leg numbness. However, most patients may complain their numb legs come back again. This is because dialysis is insufficient and not radical. Dialysis can only expel small molecular wastes out. Middle and large molecular wastes still remain in your body. Is there any radical therapy for numb leg in kidney disease other than dialysis?
Yes, in our hospital-Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital, dialysis is just a supporting therapy. The main treatment is a series of Chinese Medicine Treatments including Medicated Bath, Medicated Foot Bath, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Mai Kang Mixture, Moxibustion Therapy, Medicinal Soup and Steaming Therapy, etc. Chinese medicines have strong ability to remove toxins out.
