Is Paralysis A Side Effect Of HemodialysisIn addition to alleviating the conditions, hemodialysis also brings some side effects for kidney disease patients. Well, is paralysis a side effect of hemodialysis?

Yes, paralysis can result from hemodialysis. Paralysis refers to a loss of the ability of a muscle to contract and move. With kidney disease, patients usually suffer from metabolic disorders of protein, fat, sugar, water, electrolytes and acid base especially electrolyte and water imbalances as well as metabolic acidosis are very common. Potassium disorder can be a cause of muscle paralysis. In most cases, kidney disease patients have high potassium level in blood because of kidneys’ declined excretory ability. Even though low potassium cases have been reported and it is most possibly that you have a low potassium concentration in the blood if you are suffering from muscle paralysis.

Dialysis is just a common treatment to remove wastes and excess fluid out of the body but it fails to regulate potassium disorder and improve kidney function. What’s more, long-term dialysis even causes further decline of kidney function and worsen muscle paralysis.

To alleviate muscle paralysis, the effective treatment should reduce dialysis frequency and improve renal function. Here we recommend Chinese Medicine Treatment to repair kidney damage and improve kidney function. Chinese medicine treatments include Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Foot Bath, Enema Therapy, Acupoint Application, Mai Kang Mixture and Acupuncture, etc. Some can dilate blood vessels and improve blood circulation. Some can prevent inflammation and coagulation. Some can degrade extracellular matrix. Some can open skin pores and remove toxins. Some can provide nutrients for damaged kidneys. After a period of treatment, damaged kidneys can be repaired to some extent and kidney function will be enhanced gradually. Dialysis in this condition can be reduced or even be avoided. Dialysis complications like paralysis can be alleviated effectively and radically.
