Hemolytic–uremic syndrome (HUS) refers to a group of disorders which affect the blood and small blood vessels. The condition occurs when an immune reaction of the body causes low levels of red blood cells, low levels of platelets, and acute kidney failure. HUS is a serious condition which can be potentially life-threatening, and, thus, requires timely treatment. Planet Ayurveda herbal manufacturing company offers some beneficial herbal products for managing HUS in a safe and natural manner.
HUS is a serious condition in which the small blood vessels in the kidneys get inflamed and damaged because of an abnormal immune reaction, generally followed by an infection affecting the gastrointestinal tract.
The immune reaction which triggers kidney damage in HUS patients can reduce the count of platelets as well as red blood cells, and lead to kidney failure. The cause of kidney failure is that the damage to small blood vessels results in the formation of clots in the vessels, because of which the filtering system in the kidneys gets clogged.
HUS affects not only the kidneys, but some other vital organs as well, including the heart and the brain. The condition can lead to several life-threatening complications, such as kidney failure, stroke/seizures, high blood pressure, digestive tract problems, clotting problems, heart problems and even coma.
HUS can affect individuals of any age. However, the risk of developing the condition is high for children aged below 5 years, adults aged above 65 years, and people who have a weak immune system.
The main cause of HUS in children is infectious diarrhea because of a specific type of strains of E. coli bacteria called O157:H7. The E. coli bacteria are usually found in the intestines.
Besides infection with E. coli bacteria, there are some other non-bacterial causes which can lead to HUS in adults. These causes include HIV/AIDS infection, influenza, immunosuppressant drugs, chemotherapy, anti-platelet medications, and complications of cancer, pregnancy, and certain other autoimmune diseases.
Moreover, in some cases, certain genetic mutations can also cause HUS.
Some of the common signs and symptoms of HUS are:
- Bloody diarrhea
- Weakness or lack of energy
- Abdominal pain
- Blood in urine
- Unusual bleeding (like bleeding from the nose or mouth)
- Swollen face and limbs
- Pale skin
- Uremia (inability of kidneys to eliminate wastes from the body).
The treatment of HUS largely comprises supportive care. In some severe cases, patients may require steroids, dialysis, blood transfusions, or plasmapheresis.
