Treatments for End-stage renal disease

Treatment List for End-stage renal disease

The list of treatments mentioned in various sources for End-stage renal disease includes the following list. Always seek professional medical advice about any treatment or change in treatment plans.

  • Treatment of underlying condition for acute kidney failure
  • Kidney dialysis
  • Kidney transplant
  • Treatment of end-stage renal disease is influenced by the underlying cause of the kidney damage, the degree of uremia, the age of the patient, and any other health problems that the patient might have. Treatments include:
    • Treatment of underlying cause - e.g., hypertension, diabetes, autoimmune diseases. This is very important in order to limit or slow the progression of renal disease
    • Avoidance of medications that rely on renal excretion
    • Smoking cessation - people who continue to smoke progress to end stage renal failure sooner
    • Close management of high blood pressure, whether it is a cause or result of renal disease
    • Use of ACE inhibitors - in patients both with and without proteinuria, has been shown to slow the progression of renal failure
    • Dietary management
      • Protein restriction - may have a role in slowing the progress of renal failure, and is important to manage uremic symptoms in advanced failure, but needs to be managed carefully to avoid malnutrition
      • Salt and water restriction as necessary to manage fluid overload
      • Phosphate restriction
      • Potassium restriction as necessary
    • Erythropoietin agonists - for management of anaemia associated with chronic renal failure
    • Phosphate binders - for management of hyperphosphatemia in chronic renal failure
    • Calcium supplements - for hypocalcaemia associated with chronic renal failure
    • Calcitriol and other Vitamin D supplements - for hypocalcaemia and hyperparathyroidism associated with chronic renal failure
    • Sodium bicarbonate - for acid-base disturbance
    • Diuretics - may be used in situation of volume overload
    • Renal dialysis - used when there are manifestations of uraemia and the GFR is < 10mL/min
    • Renal transplantation
