Why Does a Patient on Hemodialysis Get a Headache

Provided by Expert Zhang Youkang on 2014-03-09 08:29

Hemodialysis is one of dialysis treatment options for people with kidney failure. It can eliminate a large amount of waste products and toxins from blood to keep the patients alive. However, the patients on hemodialysis often experience many discomforts. Headache is a common complaint of hemodialysis. What is the cause of this condition and how to manage it?

Causes of headache during hemodialysis

Headache during hemodialysis can be attributed to a number of conditions and diseases.

Firstly, hemodialysis can cause a large change in the blood volume. As a result, high blood pressure and low blood pressure are common complaints of hemodialysis. These conditions can contribute to headache.

Secondly, if headache occurs among patients who start dialysis treatment recently, it may be due to dialysis disequilibrium syndrome. After kidneys fail, high levels of toxins accumulate in blood and even body cells. Dialysis can clear up the harmful substances from blood quickly, but the waste products in body cells can not be eliminated, especially those in brain cells. The fluid in blood will filter into brain cells due to the difference of solute. Brain edema can cause headache for hemodialysis patients.

Thirdly, anemia is also a possible cause of headache during hemodialysis. This is because the diseased kidneys fail to make a kind of hormone called EPO. EPO can stimulate the production of red blood cells.

The above are the causes of headache during hemodialysis. You can email to kidneyabc@hotmail.com to get more treatment suggestions to control it.

The good news is that if the patients with hemodialysis can have an effective treatment, they have high chance of getting rid of dialysis. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is an effective treatment option for hemodialysis patients.
