What Is The preferred Time For Dialysis

2016-11-21 06:36

What Is The preferred Time For DialysisDialysis is the common treatment for patients with chronic kidney failure. But do you know what the preferred time is for dialysis. Many patients consulted us this question. Now follow us to find the answer.

Kidney disease is divided into 5 stages based on glomerular filtration rate (GFR), roughly the measure of your percent kidney function. When your GFR is at 15 to 29ml/min, you need to prepare for transplant or dialysis. When your GFR is below 15, you need to start dialysis or get a transplant. However, new science says dialysis should start by a GFR of 6, or sooner if there are symptoms. As kidneys fail, the build up of wastes and excess water in the blood can cause symptoms such as shortness of breath, trouble with mental focus, swelling in the hands, feet or face, metal taste in your mouth and itchy skin, etc. The symptoms can vary a lot. Some people even feel fine and report no symptoms. For many years, there is no exact time of when to start dialysis. Doctors would decide with you when blood test values and symptoms warranted starting treatment.

Some patients think starting dialysis earlier would help them live longer while some think starting dialysis early does not help you and it may be harmful. Dialysis is not a good therapy for kidney patients. So is there any treatment which is good for kidney failure  patients other than dialysis?

In our hospital-Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital, there is a systematic Chinese medicine treatment for kidney disease. This systematic Chinese medicine therapy includes various therapies like Medicated Bath, Medicated Foot Bath, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicinal Soup, Mai Kang Mixture, Moxibustion Therapy and Steaming Therapy, etc. They first cleanse your blood to provide you a clean blood environment for recovering your renal function. Which one is given to you exactly depends on your specific illness condition. When you come to our hospital, you first need to take a thorough check up and then our experts will make a treatment plan for you based on your condition. This systematic Chinese medicine treatment is able to reduce your dialysis times or even help you avoid dialysis. But it is only available in China so foreign patients need to come to China.

What is the preferred time for dialysis? Actually there is no exact time for dialysis. You should start dialysis according to your own condition.
