Kidney Failure: What to Do When Dialysis Fails to Work

2013-09-06 10:56

Dialysis is used to maintain kidney failure patients’ basic life by removing excess water, waste products and toxins from the body. However, in some cases, patients find a steady decline in their medical condition and dialysis fails to work. Are there other treatments to sustain their life.

Dialysis for kidney failure

Dialysis has two common types: hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis. Hemodialysis is effective on eliminating small molecular substances such as creatinine, urea acid, urea and water, but for middle or large molecular substances, its effect isn’t good. Compared with hemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis can eliminate middle substances more efficiently, but it can’t remove small molecular substances as effectively as hemodialysis.

As time goes on, no matter which type of dialysis you are undergoing, more and more complications and build up of waste products make dialysis no longer work.

What to do when dialysis fails to work?

If you still have remaining kidney function and urine, three alterative treatments can still save your life without dialysis.

1. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy: With the therapeutic effects of extending blood vessels, fixing glomerular basement membrane and degrading extracellular matrix, this therapy can increase glomerular filtration rate, so as to remove more waste products and improve patients’ health condition.

2. Immunotherapy: As a combination of blood purification and herbal medicines, Immunotherapy mainly aims to treat autoimmune kidney diseases such as IgA Nephropathy, Lupus Nephritis and FSGS by eliminating immune complexes and regulating patients’ immune system.

3. Polluted blood therapy: In kidney failure, patients’ kidney and blood circulation fall into a vicious circle, so this therapy focuses on treating polluted blood before treating kidney disease. Once blood circulation is normalized, it can transport enough blood and oxygen to the damaged kidneys. In this condition, some medicines are used to enhance the self-curative ability of damaged kidneys cells. Finally, a part of these cells can recover to work, and then kidney function can be improved.

Each patient is suitable for different treatments. If you are faced by the failed dialysis, you can describe your illness condition to the online doctor, so they can help you determine whether the above treatments are available for you.
