Can I Get Rid of Dialysis

2013-01-31 16:56

Q: "I started dialysis 5 months ago. My doctor prescribed me dialysis due high levels of toxins in my body and serious swelling in many body part. I know dialysis can keep me alive, but my life has changed a lot since the treatment. I had to disturb my daily activity and made my schedule around the dialysis treatment.What makes me frustrated is the side effects of the treatment. I have skin itching, headache, nausea and things like that. I think I lose the meaning of life. I am on Kidney Transplant list, but it is really hard to get a matched donor. I really feel disgusted of dialysis. Can I get rid of it?"

A: I am sorry to hear your experience, but you should keep positive.We can not deny the importance of dialysis in treating kidney failure. However, the patients on dialysis actually suffer a lot. What’s more, dialysis is not a cure for renal failure. The dialysis frequency will increase as the extending of treatment.

Fortunately enough, some people on dialysis can reduce dialysis frequency and even get rid of it. However, there are still premises. One of important premises is that the patients should have urine output. We all know that kidneys can filter blood and the remove wastes from body by producing urine. If there is no blood passing kidneys, medicines can not reach the impaired kidney lesion at all. That is why the patients with renal failure are recommended to start treatment as early as possible.

In western medicine, dialysis and Kidney Transplant are the only options for people with renal failure. In China, there are more treatment options like Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, immunotherapy, etc. These treatments can work together to bring an improvement in renal function.

However, no treatment can help the patients with renal failure to regain their complete renal function. The good news is that if their renal function can improve 15%, it is enough to maintain their normal life. If so, they will be able to get rid of dialysis.
