Patients suffering from chronic kidney disease develop resistance to hypertension drugs, have lower potassium levels and also face sudden cardiac arrest. Recent assessment of various cases’s related to renal disease, it is observed that cardiac diseases are an independent factor for kidney problems and vice versa. This has come to light because of the recurrent cases of patients, who are on dialysis or suffering from chronic kidney failure, or are having a sudden heart attack or even a silent attack and dying. These are preventable if the treatment goes together with kidney treatment.
According to case studies conducted by various medical professionals during the past two decades, it has been revealed that patients, who are at end-stage renal failure, suffer from cardiac arrhythmia or irregular heart beat. The nephrologists and cardiologists felt that such patients must be diagnosed early and treated in advance so that sudden death due to cardiac arrests can be prevented. While treating the kidney patients, the doctors must also look into the potassium levels and protein urea of these patients. These are independent risk factors and if they are diagnosed well in time, then the life of the patients can be saved.
