Does Dialysis Decrease Ammonia Level In Kidney Failure

2017-01-11 08:39

Does Dialysis Decrease Ammonia Level In Kidney FailureAn elevated level of ammonia in the blood can be caused by kidney failure. High ammonia level can cause some symptoms including fatigue, muscle weakness, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and pain in the back, etc. Dialysis is usually recommended by your doctor to lower elevated ammonia level.

How does high ammonia level occur?

Ammonia is a normal by-product of processing nitrogen in the body, and is excreted as waste in the urine. However, when kidneys are not working properly, they will allow this waste to remain in the bloodstream and then elevated blood ammonia levels can occur.

Does dialysis decrease ammonia level?

Dialysis is an artificial kidney which helps injured kidneys to discharge wastes from the bloodstream. In this way, dialysis can decrease ammonia to some extent. However, dialysis cannot repair your kidney damage. That means your ammonia level will elevate again.

Is there any radical treatment for high ammonia level in kidney failure?

In kidney failure, our hospital nowadays uses Toxin-Removing Treatment for high ammonia level. Toxin-Removing Treatment is on the basis of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and it also includes many therapies such as Medicated Bath, Medicated Foot Bath, Mai Kang Mixture, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy,Moxibustion Therapy, Medicinal Soup and Steaming Therapy, etc. Different patient will be given different treatment. Toxin-Removing Treatment first purifies your blood to supply you a clean internal environment for recovering your kidney function. Without a clean blood environment, toxins and wastes in bloodstream can cause further kidney damage and also reduce the effect of medication you take. Thus, it is very important to first cleanse your blood. After blood is cleansed, Toxin-Removing Treatment can stimulate the self-healing ability of injured kidney tissues and improve renal function through dilating your blood vessels, improving blood circulation, degrading extracellular matrix, providing nutrients and removing blood stasis. When renal function is improved, high ammonia level can be reduced radically. Moreover, it is possible for you to avoid dialysis with enhanced renal function.

Dialysis can decrease ammonia to some extent. Aside from dialysis, the key point for kidney failure patients is Toxin-Removing Treatment to restore kidney damage and enhance renal function.
