Low blood pressure is also very harmful. It can cause dizziness, fatigue, palenss, headache, loss of appetite and in serious conditions it can cause difficulty in breathing or even faint.

Low blood pressure can cause slowed blood circulation. This can affect supply of blood, oxygen and other nutritions to the kidneys and affect the discharging of carbon dioxide and other metabolic wastes and toxins. Timely treatment should be given or it can worsen renal damages.

Dialysis and nausea

Nausea in dialysis is mainly due to dialysis disequilibrium syndrome which is often very common among dialysis patients. Patients often have nausea, vomiting, restless and in serious conditions they can have tics, coma or even death.
