2015-03-14 06:27

What causes a person to have seizure receiving dialysis? Dialysis patients usually have seizure and they should take timely treatment to alleviate seizure in dialysis. Well, what causes seizure in dialysis and how to treat it?

1. What causes seizure from dialysis?

Dialysis disequilibrium syndrome

It is a central nervous system disorder, and it can cause muscle cramp, anorexia and dizziness. Dialysis disequilibrium syndrome is due primarily to cerebral edema. Patients in this situation run higher risk of seizures.


People on dialysis are often on medication, and some of these might cause seizures. Therefore, people on dialysis should pay close attention to the use of drugs.

Cerebrovascular diseases

Seizures may be caused by cerebrovascular diseases such as hypertensive encephalopathy, infarction, hemorrhage and subdural hematoma. All these symptoms are related closely with long term of dialysis. What’s worse, aggressive dialysis may result in seizure activity directly.


Other things caused by dialysis like a change in electrolytes-the constituents of the blood, stress or many others could possibly cause seizures.

2. How to treat seizure in dialysis?

The most effective treatment for seizure in dialysis is to take Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. The active ingredients can expand blood vessels, reduce inflammation and coagulation, and provide some nutrients for damaged kidneys. Impaired kidneys can be repaired to some extent and renal function can also be enhanced. Thus, seizure can be relieved by enhancing kidney function.
