2015-08-10 02:13

What Are Side Effects Of Long-term Of DialysisWhen kidney disease develops to end stage renal disease (ESRD), patients may need long-term of dialysis. What are side effects of long-term of dialysis?

1. High blood pressure

High blood pressure is mainly caused by water-sodium retention, increased activity of renin angiotensin system and increased excitability of sympathetic nervous system. Under this condition, patients need to limit water and sodium intake, meanwhile pay attention to their dry weight.

2. Left heart insufficiency

In addition to high blood pressure and water-sodium retention, left heart insufficiency is related to anemia, acidosis, electrolyte disorder and malnutrition. Sufficient dialysis and dry weight maintain is the main treatment for left heart insufficiency. Besides, treatment for anemia, high blood pressure should also be used.

3. Digestive disease

Dialysis patients may suffer from esophagitis, gastritis, gastric ulcer and gastrointestinal bleeding. Urine toxic storage causing damages on autonomic nerve results in gastrointestinal movement disorder.

It is effective to strengthen the dialysis.

4. Anemia

The root cause of anemia is sufficient erythropoietin (EPO). Other factors include lack of raw material for blood, blood loss in dialysis, increased red blood cell destruction and myelofibrosis and aluminum poison.

EPO injection is the main treatment for renal anemia. Other treatments include dialysis strengthen, raw material for blood supplement and reducing blood loss in dialysis. As for severe anemia, blood transfusion should be used.

5. Skin problems

Skin problems include itchy skin, dry skin, nail changes and oral lesions, etc. Dialysis strengthen can do some help for some cases of skin problems.

The above are just some part of side effects in dialysis. Most dialysis patients would like to choose alternative remedies. Thus, I recommend Chinese medicines which can repair injured kidneys and improve renal function. As long as kidney function is improved, kidneys can work by their own and there is no need to take dialysis again. Then its side effects will also be alleviated or disappear naturally.
