Do You Have to Stay on Dialysis Once It Is Started

2016-09-08 03:36

Dialysis is like a coin with two sides. On one side, it can help kidney failure patients cleanse the polluted blood and maintain their life. On the other side, it has a lot of side effects, such as low blood pressure, headache, nausea, vomiting and so on to decrease living quality. Do you have to stay on dialysis once it is started? Read on to find out the answer.

Sometimes dialysis is a necessity.

When there are a lot of waste products in the blood and you have a lot of symptoms and body malaise, you have to start dialysis immediately to lower toxin concentration, otherwise your life may be threatened. Once your state of disease is stabilized, you can try some alternatives to get rid of dialysis.

How to stop dialysis gradually?

In our hospital, we often use Chinese medicine together with dialysis for kidney failure. In Chinese medicine, there are a series of helpful therapies, such as medicated foot bath, medicated full bath, enema therapy, steam therapy, circle therapy, acupuncture, moxibustion, etc. Some can help expel waste products from the blood to further decrease toxin concentration in the blood. Some can remove toxins out of the renal cells so as to help them recover. Some can dilate blood vessels and remove stasis to improve blood circulation and increase blood flow to kidneys so as to provide the damaged kidneys with enough oxygen, nutrients and active ingredients of medicines to speed up their recovery. With the improvement of kidney function, you can stop dialysis. So far we have treated many kidney patients. Once their creatinine level comes down and stabilizes, they stop dialysis and use Chinese medicine only to improve their kidney condition.

Do you have to stay on dialysis once it is started? No. In some cases, dialysis is used temporarily to help stabilize the disease and then you can stop it. If you do not want to end your life on dialysis, you should take treatment as early as possible to repair kidney damage and improve kidney function.
