Is Mental Confusion After Dialysis PermanentFor patients with long term of dialysis, they are probably prone to suffer from low blood pressure, anemia, itchy skin and mental confusion. Well then, is mental confusion caused by dialysis?

The following are some causes of mental confusion in dialysis:

1. Lots of toxins in blood

As we know kidneys are responsible for filtering wastes and toxins from the blood and this can help regulate the overall health of the body. However, when kidneys are damaged, they fail to work and toxins will build up in blood, which may affect brain and cause mental confusion.

2. Lack of oxygen

The kidneys on dialysis patients fail to secrete enough erythropoietin (EPO) which is responsible for stimulating bone marrows to generate red blood cells. Besides, one important function of red blood cells is to transport oxygen to every part of human body. When there is no enough oxygen to supply the brain, patients on dialysis may suffer from mental confusion.

3. Dialysis disequilibrium syndrome

The main reason of mental confusion after dialysis is dialysis disequilibrium syndrome. It is a complication that can occur during or after dialysis and may be caused by abnormal water balance within the brain. Brain swelling can cause a series of neurological symptoms. In addition to mental confusion, it can also cause headache, nausea, muscle cramp, blurred vision and drowsiness, etc.

What is the treatment for mental confusion after dialysis?

Frankly speaking, dialysis is not the only method for kidney failure patients. In Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital, Chinese medicines are widely used in clinical and have achieved great success. For example, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is a brand new innovation of TCM and the active ingredients can protect residual kidney function and repair injured kidney cells and tissues. This therapy is an external application, which avoids the bitter taste of oral taking medicines. In this way, with the help of osmosis device the active ingredients can be permeated into kidney lesion directly. After a period of treatment, kidney function can be improved greatly. It is possible for kidney itself to discharge wastes and produce enough red blood cells so as to alleviate mental confusion radically.
