Is It Possible To Get Kidney Infection While On DialysisIs it possible to get a kidney infection even while on dialysis? I had a kidney transplant that failed and lately I have been getting pain over the site and my back and running low fevers at night.

Yes, you can. Dialysis patients are generally more susceptible to infection. Dialysis involves the replacement of tubes within the body to allow for the drainage and filtration of excess fluids and waste. Patients need to take dialysis three to seven times a week and each treatment can last anywhere from 3 to 10 hours. The frequency of dialysis treatments increase the risk for developing an infection. Side effects of infection include fever, stomach pain, nausea, vomiting or body aches. Certain patients can also develop inflammation or irritation of the skin at the site where the dialysis tube is inserted into the body. These symptoms can be uncomfortable and require additional antibiotic medication to treat the infection. In addition, the access point should be clean, and any sign of infection like redness, itching or other problems should be watched for.

Although dialysis is one way of kidney failure, it is not the only way. There is alternative remedy to replace dialysis and stop infection.

The alternative remedy for kidney failure is 4M Treatment (Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Foot Bath, Mai Kang Mixture, Various Medicinal Soup). Some can dilate blood vessels and expel wastes and toxins from the body. Some can prevent inflammation and anti-coagulation. Some can degrade extracellular matrix. Some can improve blood microcirculation. Some can remove blood stasis. Some can provide enough blood and oxygen to alleviate renal ischemia and hypoxia state. All these set up a good environment for kidney restoration. Gradually kidney damage can be repaired to some extent and kidney function will be improved naturally. As long as kidney function is improved, dialysis frequency can be reduced or even be avoided. Thus, it reduces the risk for infection.

It is possible to get a kidney infection while on dialysis. But we can reduce the risk for infection on dialysis by improving kidney function.
