Author(s): Dr. Arun Kumar Verma
Abstract:Background: Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a precursor to end-stage kidney disease and is associated with an increased risk of death. The present study assessed metabolic complications of chronic kidney disease.
Materials & Methods: 60 patients of chronic kidney disease of both genders were assessed for estimation of calcium, phosphate, bicarbonate, potassium, urea etc.
Results: Out of 60 patients, there were 38 male and 22 females. Out of 60 patients, fatigue was seen in 45 patients, muscle pain in 53, numbness in 50, bone pain in 41 and vomiting in 44. The difference was non- significant (P> 0.05). Hyperkalemia was seen in 12, hypocalcemia in 18, hyperurecemia in 17, metabolic acidosis in 13, hyperphosphatemia in 9 patients. The difference was non- significant (P> 0.05).
Conclusion: Metabolic complications are common in patients with CKD. Most common was hyperuricemia, hypocalcemia and hyperkalemia.
