I am a kidney dialysis patient. I have noticed my skin is starting to get dark. How can I stop this?


How Can We Stop Dark Skin In Kidney DialysisHello. We are happy to answer your question.

First, you should know what causes dark skin.

As there is a build up of uremic toxins in the blood and tissues of people with kidney failure, there is also a build up in the skin. In this case, the skin is darker than normal color. In addition, dark skin in dialysis patients is usually related to pigments called urochromes that are retained in the skin. They are usually excreted by healthy kidneys but not in end stage renal disease, nor are they eliminated by dialysis. Dialysis patients’ skin is very dark from this. At first it looks kind of orange, and then it gets more brown. Everyone at the dialysis center has been very straightforward about it. It is not the dialysis. It is just that dialysis cannot do anything about it.

Second, you should take treatment to make your kidney function improved.

Nowadays, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is used in clinic to save kidneys by repairing kidney damage and improving renal function. As long as kidneys can be repaired, they can discharge some wastes from the blood so as to alleviate skin problems. What’s more, dialysis frequency will also be reduced. Thus, other side effects of dialysis will also be relieved like headache, nausea, vomiting, muscle cramp, sleep problems, etc.
