Can Kidney Disease Affect Male Reproduction?
Morning doctor, I ivan, there is no influence on the doctor if people with kidney disease affect the reproductive organs stamina
Hello Ivan, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
What did you mean by those with kidney disease who were patients with chronic kidney failure?
If what you really mean is chronic kidney failure, then it is true that people with chronic kidney failure can experience erectile dysfunction (impotence). It is estimated that erectile dysfunction occurs in about 70-80% of patients with chronic kidney failure. Some possible causes of erectile dysfunction in patients with chronic kidney failure include:
hormonal disorders (including disorders of sex hormone regulation and secondary hyperparathyroidism)
disorders of the arteries (including blood vessels that bleeding the penis)
neurological disorders (neuropathy)
side effects of drugs given for chronic kidney failure
psychological disorders (such as depression which is quite common in people with chronic diseases)
Therapy for erectile dysfunction in patients with chronic kidney failure is more or less the same as other erectile dysfunction sufferers. First, you must overcome the problem of the cause. For example in patients with chronic kidney failure that must be done on dialysis, it must be done routinely on dialysis, if there is anemia, it must be overcome by administering EPO (erythropoietin), if there is secondary hyperparathyroidism, then vitamin D can be active, if there is depression, then a referral can be made to a psychiatrist to overcome it, and so on (adjusted to the condition of each patient). In addition, if there are no contraindications, certain medications can be given to help treat erectile dysfunction.
If you have chronic kidney failure and have erectile dysfunction as well, you should consult your condition directly to an internist who treats you. If necessary, your doctor can refer you to a urologist for the management of erectile dysfunction that you are experiencing.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
