Can A Person Drive After Dialysis Treatment

Can A Person Drive After Dialysis TreatmentCan a person drive after dialysis treatment? This question is from our mail box kidneycares@hotmail.com. For many reasons, many on dialysis drive themselves before and after their treatments in-center and at home. However, it is not very safe for dialysis patients to drive.

What may happen while driving?

Many dialysis patients describe cramping, severe bleeding, loss or blurred vision, and fatigue while driving, especially when they finish dialysis. While in-center patients may be at higher risk of experiencing negative side effects, this relates to hemodialysis patients as well because they may have errands after their treatments that may cause them to suffer the above challenges.

Besides, if you have low blood pressure when driving, you may feel faint and your vision can become blurred. Then you probably should not be driving. From a legal viewpoint, you should be in a sticky situation if you drive and then have an accident. There are also the moral implications if you black out behind the wheel and then injure or kill someone. If you feel ok after dialysis, you can drive. Saying that it really depends on how you feel generally after dialysis.

Is there any alternative to dialysis?

Yes, our Chinese medicine treatments can help you avoid or at least reduce dialysis times. Our therapies aim to repair injured kidney tissues and improve renal function. Only when renal function is improved can dialysis times be reduced. There are lots of therapies in our hospital including Medicated Bath, Medicated Foot Bath, Mai Kang Mixture, Medicinal Soup and Moxibustion Therapy, etc. When the patient comes to our hospital, we first give the patient a thorough check up and then make a treatment plan for the patient. Different patient will have different treatment plan. The treatment principle of our Chinese medicines is to cleanse blood first before treating kidney disease. When blood is purified, Chinese medicines can recover renal function gradually through dilating blood vessels, improving blood circulation, preventing inflammation and coagulation, degrading extracellular matrix and providing nutrients. When renal function is improved, you can reduce dialysis times or even avoid dialysis. Also you can avoid side effects of dialysis.

You should decide to drive or not according to your own specific condition. If you need more information, you can leave a message below or consult our onlined doctor directly.
