Blurry Vision With Shortness Of Breath In Patients With Kidney Failure?
Good afternoon I have a sister-in-law suffering from chronic kidney failure and have already begun some dialysis therapy. Finally, he complains of shortness of breath and his eyesight is unclear, it can be said to be blurry. I have tried searching for information on Google, including shortness of breath, there is little trouble because of the buildup of the lungs. But if my vision is blurry, I haven’t found an answer. Mhon the information. Thank you.
Good evening, thanks for the question
Abnormalities in the eye do often accompany chronic kidney failure, including one of the retinal disorders that provide blurred vision. Included in the retinal disorder in question include:
1. Retinopathy due to diabetes complications
2. Macular degeneration
3. Retinal bleeding
This condition is caused by complications of small blood vessels where most often due to conditions of diabetes and hypertension which is also a major cause of chronic kidney failure. Retinal abnormalities will begin to be felt by patients in stage 3 to stage 5 chronic kidney failure. There is a strong relationship when the kidney filtering function decreases, so that interference with the retina will also get worse. The condition will get worse with age and smoking history.
Further examination is needed by an ophthalmologist to assess the extent of the disruption and what treatment is appropriate for the underlying cause. Therefore do not hesitate to immediately consult the condition with an eye doctor.
That's all, hope you can help
