Can 2 Times A Week Dialysis Cause Weakness for Patients

Can 2 Times A Week Dialysis Cause Weakness for PatientsIt is the time to begin dialysis for some renal patients when their kidney disease develops into end stage. In most cases, dialysis is recommended 3 times one week. 2 times of dialysis a week means a part of kidney functioning tissues can still work. As we know, most dialysis patients experience weakness. Can 2 times of dialysis one week cause weakness?

Weakness during or after dialysis

Weakness can make dialysis patients present with sleepiness, muscle weakness or lack of energy, and it is commonly found in dialysis patients. Even though some patients are only undergoing 2 times of dialysis or fewer one week, some of them feel tired easily during or after dialysis. Usually, the following conditions can cause this problem.

- Renal anemia: Most patients on dialysis have renal anemia, because of either iron deficiency or lack of EPO. Anemia can make patients feel tired all times.

- Low blood pressure: It is one common side effect of dialysis. If patients drink extra water during dialysis sessions, too much fluid is taken away in one dialysis treatment that can cause dizziness and weakness easily.

- Some medications: For people with end stage kidney failure, they always need to take various medications for controlling their symptoms. Weakness is more likely to be one side effect of these medications.

- Dietary restriction: Nearly all dialysis patients need to develop a restricted diet plan. This type of diet may be unable to supplement enough nutrition. Lack of energy can make them feel tired.

How to deal with weakness for patients on dialysis 2 times one week?

The goal of our treatment is to reduce the frequency of dialysis and manage the side effects of dialysis. Here, we recommend micro-Chinese medicine hot compress therapy. Through increasing the blood flow into kidneys, anti-inflammation, anti-coagulation and degrading extracellular matrix, this therapy does help dialysis patients improve their kidney function. As long as the therapeutic effect is achieved, patients can get rid of dialysis successfully, let alone managing weakness.
