Treatment of Pleural Effusion in Dialysis PatientsPleural effusion is a common complication of dialysis. It can severely affect your living quality and life expectancy. Therefore, you should take treatment as early as possible to prevent and treat pleural effusion.

The main reason of pleural effusion in dialysis is inadequate dialysis, so to eliminate pleural effusion, you should have an adequate dialysis, for example, to increase dialysis times, avoid over increase of weight during two dialysis sessions, decrease dry weight, etc. If you have been fed up with dialysis, you can try Chinese medicine.

In Chinese medicine, there is medicated foot bath, medicated full bath, enema therapy, steam therapy, circle therapy, acupuncture, moxibustion, etc. Some of them can help expel waste products from blood. Some can help draw toxins out of the renal cells. Some can speed up blood circulation and remove stasis to improve blood circulation so that oxygen can be transported into the damaged kidneys to improve ischemia and anoxia; nutrients and active ingredients of medicines can go into damaged kidneys to speed up kidney recovery. Some can inhibit kidney inflammation. Some can stop kidney fibrosis. All in all, those therapies can set up a good blood environment for the damaged kidneys to heal themselves gradually. With the improvement of kidney function, its associated symptoms will be under controlled. And it is also possible for you to reduce dialysis times or even get rid of dialysis.
