2013-09-18 09:49

home haemodialysis, kidney failureIf you are suffering from kidney failure and you are facing to choose the type of dialysis treatment, the following information about home dialysis for kidney failure can be helpful.

Signs and symptoms usually start when the kidneys are working below 40%. Once they are working below 10%, dialysis or a kidney transplant is needed to stay alive. Home dialysis includes both peritoneal dialysis and home haemodialysis. Here we will mainly talk about home haemodialysis for kidney failure.

If kidney failure patients choose to do home haemodialysis, they will need comprehensive training in order to become confident and self-reliant. The length of training varies, depending on the individual, it could be from 6 to 16 weeks or longer. Dialysis at home brings the benefits of increased independence from your renal unit and choice about how you schedule your sessions. On the down side, however, it can put a strain on the people you live with, it also involves time preparing the machine for each session. What is more, though home haemodialysis can help kidney failure patients eliminate some certain harmful substances and bring them some conveniences, the fact is that no one kidney disease patient wants to give the rest of his or her life to a cold machine and any types of dialysis is unable to save kidneys from the root.

Here another treatment option for kidney failure called Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy will be recommended. This treatment is based on Chinese herbal medicines, but used externally. Two bags filled with processed Chinese herbal medicines are put under lower back of kidney failure patients, osmosis device helps the active materials directly get to kidneys and then come into play. Just likes home haemodialysis, kidney failure patients can do Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy at any time. In general, three times a day, 45 minutes each time, they just need to lie on the bed and then turn on the power, and then do nothing. It just likes Chinese massage, very comfortable.

The difference between Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy and home haemodialysis is that the former aims at saving kidneys by repairing kidney damage and recovering renal function. So we do believe Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is the best choice for kidney failure patients. It has been commonly used in clinic to help kidney failure patients avoid or get rid of dialysis nowadays. Any questions? Leave a message below or email us to, we are here to help.
