Will Kidney Dialysis Cause Decreased Urine OutputWill kidney dialysis cause decreased urine output? Some kidney failure patients complain they can not urinate or they urinate less and less after doing dialysis for several years. Why is this? Kidney dialysis can cause problems like nausea, vomiting, skin itching, headache and tiredness, but can it cause decrease of urine output?

Kidney dialysis reduce urine output

Kidney dialysis is life-support and it indeed prolong life span, but it is not an ideal solution and also it indeed reduces urine output.

Kidney serves us as a filter. In kidney, there are glomerular filtration membrane which works through charge barrier and mechanical barrier. Charge barrier helps to reduce substances with negative charge and mechanical barrier stop macromolecular substances from leaking. During this process, only excess fluid, toxins and small part of nutrients are removed out of the body as urine. However, for kidney failure patients, their kidneys are damaged severely. In such a case, kidneys can not filter as much blood as they did before. Consequently, less urine are produced.

For dialysis patients, their blood is made out of the body and then filtered by a special machine. During this process, only small amounts of blood flow into kidney. Consequently, urine output decreases.

How to increase urine output with kidney failure?

Urine is produced while blood flow through kidney, so the best way to increase urine output is to increase bloodstream in kidney.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is an available treatment for kidney failure patients to increase bloodstream in kidney. It works by dilate blood vessels, promote blood circulation and repair injured kidney tissues. When bloodstream in kidney is improved, much more blood is filtered by kidney and also much more urine are produced.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is based on TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine). As all the herbs are used externally in this treatment, so no side effects are caused. If you are interested and want to learn more details about this treatment, you can ask our online doctor for help.
