Q:

I do peritoneal dialysis and gained 40lbs from it. How long after kidney transplant will that weight come back off?

A:

How Long Will Weight Come Back Off After Kidney TransplantWhat is the cause of the weight gain?

You would gain weight as the dialysis fluid is full of sugars that is absorbed into your body when dialysing. All the sugar in the peritoneal dialysis fluid makes most people gain weight. Dextrose is sugar. When you absorb fluid you gain weight.

Will kidney transplant make you lose weight?

A lot of time people tend to gain weight with prednisone or some type of steroid after transplant. Prednisolone especially makes you very hungry and gives a bit of a moon face.

If you want to lose weight, you need to change your eating habits. No fast food, no processed food, no sugars, cook at home, eat real food, drink only water. Once you start this lifestyle change, it is possible for you to lose weight. It is easier than you ever thought it would be.

In addition, dialysis and kidney transplant can do some help for your kidney disease but they are not the only options. If you can find effective method for kidney disease, you can avoid dialysis and kidney transplant as well as their side effects.

The effective solution for kidney disease should aim at repairing kidney damage and improving kidney function. Here we recommend 4M Treatment (Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Foot Bath, Mai Kang Mixture and various Medicinal Soup) can improve blood environment which is good for damaged kidneys to repair themselves. Besides, the active ingredients can also supply some essential nutrients such as vitamins and amino acids for the injured kidneys to speed up recovery. With the improvement of kidney function, it is possible for you to avoid dialysis and kidney transplant. Also you can avoid gaining weight due to dialysis and steroids after transplant.
