Can Dialysis Patients Gain Kidney Function Back

2013-09-29 14:28

Can Dialysis Patients Gain Kidney Function BackDialysis is one life-support treatment that does some of works done by healthy kidneys. When our kidney function is normal, our blood is purified by kidneys, but when kidneys fail, we may need dialysis to replace diseased kidneys. Here, most of us may ask: can dialysis patients gain kidney function back?

Dialysis for kidney patients

Dialysis, sometimes called artificial kidney, is one kidney replacement therapy that uses a special machine to filter creatinine, uric acid, excess fluid, salt, urea and other small molecular wastes from the body. This can recover the blood to a relatively healthy balance.

There are two common types of dialysis, including:

-Hemodialysis: It uses a semipermeable membrane to make blood exchange substances with dialyzate. Generally, patients need to go one dialysis center for treatments several times one week.

- Peritoneal dialysis: It uses the lining of patients’ abdomen to cleanse blood, and it may be done everyday.

Can dialysis improve kidney function?

Dialysis is able to purify blood, protect remaining kidney function, ease anemia and improve patients’ life quality to some extent. However, dialysis itself can’t improve kidney failure patients’ kidney function, because it can do nothing to repair inherent kidney cells and prompt the regeneration of new tissues.

This doesn’t mean it is impossible for dialysis patients to increase their kidney function. If they want to gain kidney function back, two aspects must be achieved: damaged kidney cells get more nutrition and their self-curative ability enhances.

Chinese herbs absorb the strong restoring ability of our nature, so they have effects of increasing blood flow into kidneys and prompting the self-repair of damaged kidney cells. In view of this, the key to regain kidney function is to choose correct medicines. With help of TCM doctors online, try to find what herbs are available for you.
