2016-11-10 07:56


My brother in law is on dialysis and doctors say in order to be considered for transplant surgery, he must gain 30 pounds. It’s very hard for him to gain weight, he doesn’t have an appetite most days. Is there anything to help him gain his weight? He needs for surgery. Where should he start?


How to Gain Weight for Dialysis PatientsDue to nausea, vomiting and other body discomforts, dialysis patients usually have a poor appetite. That is why their weight keeps on decreasing.

To gain weight, you can do the following things:

-Choose foods that are high in calories.

-Eat frequent, small meals.

-Use supplemental drinks, powders, and bars.

-Take part in moderate amounts of aerobic activity.

And to increase the successful rate of transplant, weight gain is not enough.

Dialysis is a way to cleanse the blood, but it can only remove the micromolecule waste products, while other wastes are still in the blood. And due to inadequate dialysis, many patients still suffer from high creatinine level after dialysis. When toxin concentration in the blood is high, it can cause damage to your transplanted kidney. Therefore, it is necessary for you to cleanse the blood and set up a good blood environment before doing transplant. Here we recommend Toxin-Removing Treatment. This is a systemic treatment, which includes many kinds of Chinese medicine therapies, such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Foot Bath, Medicated Full Bath, Enema Therapy, Steam Therapy, Moxibustion, Navel Therapy, etc. They can draw toxins out of the renal cells and eliminate waste products from the blood. They can also dilate blood vessels and remove stasis to increase blood flow into damaged kidneys so that oxygen, nutrients and active ingredients of medicine can be transported into damaged kidneys to speed up kidney recovery. After a long period of treatment, it is possible for him to improve kidney function to reduce dialysis frequency or avoid dialysis. And then he can prolong the progression to kidney transplant.

To gain weight on dialysis and increase the successful rate of transplant, the fundamental way is to set up a good blood environment. For more information on kidney failure treatment, please leave a message below or contact online doctor.
