  • Itching

    Hello,
    I have stage 4 CKD and the itching is getting worse. I'm not yet on dialysis. Any suggestions?
    Thanks

    Hi Tom1947, welcome to myDaVita! Itching can be a symptom of CKD. Here is some more information from DaVita.com: https://www.davita.com/kidney-diseas...-and-diagnosis.

    It's best to discuss any specific medical concerns or questions with your local care team as everyone's needs are different. Wishing you the best!

        When I first complained of the itching, my nephrologist shrugged it off, but my primary care dr. prescribed Hydroxyzine. It makes me sleepy, so I take it ONLY at night if the itching is keeping me awake. Works like a charm!
