What Will Happen if You Miss Dialysis

2013-08-27 13:56

Dialysis is a replacement therapy and it can replace the kidneys to perform functions when they are diseased. Dialysis should be performed regularly. What will happen if you miss dialysis?

How often dialysis is done?

Dialysis is mainly divided into peritoneal dialysis and hemodialysis. Peritoneal dialysis filters blood by using abdominal membrane and hemodialysis does this with a machine.

Peritoneal dialysis is done at home and it make up more free time for the patients.The patients need to do peritoneal dialysis every day.

Hemodialysis is mostly done in a dialysis unit.Usually, each hemodialysis treatment lasts about four hours and is done three times per week.

What will happen if you miss dialysis?

Dialysis barely achieves 5~10% of what kidneys do.No amount of dialysis can remove all the toxins and fluid in a perfect manner.Healthy kidneys work 24 hours a day in 365 days without a break.As for hemodialysis, it is done mostly twice a week for four hours each time. Even if dialysis is performed at the prescribed intervals,it is not possible to give a complete removal of wastes from body.

So,dialysis patients must never skip a session. As it is, we are getting much less than what we need. If we reduce even this, the effects can only be deleterious. In the short term, toxins and excess fluids will build up in body, leading to discomforts, breathlessness and nausea. In the long term, it could cause more severe problems and even death.
