Can You Work with Kidney Failure

2016-09-23 07:42

Can You Work with Kidney FailureWith kidney failure, you do not only cost a lot of money on treatment, but also can not take part in work normally. In some cases, your family has to accompany you to hospitalize. As a result, your family will be affected as well. Can I still work with kidney failure? A lot of kidney patients can not help asking such a question. After all, we can not involve whole family because of the disease.

Whether you can work or not with kidney failure depends on the following 4 points:

-If your kidney patients with nephritis or Nephrotic Syndrome or asymptomatic kidney cysts, you can take part in a job which is not too tired.

-If your creatinine level is higher than the normal range, and your blood pressure and uric acid level are also high, you can only do some easy works.

-If your disease is active or developing, for example, you have proteinuria, elevation of creatinine level, cyst rupture, etc, you should stop work immediately and take treatment aggressively. When it gets remission into the first two conditions, you can work.

-If your disease is acute, you should lie on bed to have a good rest. In such a case, you can not go to work.

Remember: You can go back to work, but it does not mean you can do all jobs. You should adjust your work content and intensity according to your kidney disease.

What should take precaution during work?

We should do the adjustment according to GFR, because GFR is an indicator of kidney function. Under normal circumstance, GFR is low in the morning, and it begins to increase to the maximum until noon. And then it will decrease. In the evening, it is the lowest.

Therefore, you should start work in the morning and stop it in the evening. Avoid staying up and work overtime.

In addition, you should go to receive examination regular to check your conditions.

At last, uremia patients can also take part in job if they do not have any complications.

If you are on hemodialysis, you should adjust work time and dialysis time. Do not shorten or delay the dialysis time because of work. If you are on peritoneal dialysis, you need to change gauze in the day, so you should ensure the environment you stay is very clean. If there is not suitable room, you can do it in the clean car.

Can you work with kidney failure? Now you have a clear mind. Hope kidney failure does not bring you so many troubles. If you could not find a suitable treatment to control it, you can try Chinese medicine, which can help repair kidney damage and improve kidney function.
