2013-02-07 16:27

Dialysis can save the patients' life by removing the toxic wastes from body. However, artificially filtering the blood can decrease certain nutrients in body, resulting in many complications. By increasing nutrients supplement, complications of dialysis will be reduced.

Vitamin and mineral supplement

Diseased kidneys fail to keep the balance of electrolytes and hinder the absorption of vitamin. Also, some nutrients may lose during dialysis process. Food alone are not enough for the patients on dialysis at all. Supplement of manganese and zinc can help improve immunity. Vitamin C can increase blood flow, decrease DNA damage and prevent free radical from forming.

Powder supplements

For the dietary restriction, it is hard for the patients on Dialysis to get enough protein while maintaining their phosphorus restriction. Protein powder is a good protein supplement option for those patients.


L-carnitine plays an important role in body. It can help reduce the levels of triglyceride and cholesterol to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. Also, it can enhance immunity. Just name a few functions here. L-carnitine is often recommended to dialysis patients for persistent muscle cramps, hypotension, skeletal muscle weakness and lack of energy.

Coenzyme Q10

Coenzyme Q10 levels can be depleted by dialysis, which can increase the risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke etc. Coenzyme Q10 is usually taken by patients on dialysis.

Protein supplement

The patients with renal failure should have a tight restriction of protein intake. It can help reduce the production of urea to decrease strain on kidney. However, some protein may loss during dialysis process so it is necessary for them to increase the protein intake in moderation.
