High Phosphorus in Dialysis: What Should Patients Do

2014-11-05 14:28

When people are in kidney failure and require dialysis, kidneys are no longer able to remove excess phosphorus from the body. Dialysis removes some of the phosphorus from your blood, but it is relatively inefficient. Then what should patients do with high phosphorus in dialysis.

A normal phosphorus level in the blood is between 3.5 and 5.5 milliliters per deciliter. When the phosphorus level is more than the normal range, calcium is pulled from the bones to form calcium-phosphorus crystals, which your body deposits in the blood vessels or skin. This can result in itching, skin sores, weakened bones and rigid blood vessels. However, these complications significantly increase the risk of heart failure and death. So it is very urgent to deal with high phosphorus.

Firstly, patients can balance their phosphorus level through diet. There are plenty of low-phosphorus foods that you can enjoy while on dialysis. Low-phosphorus fruits and vegetables include grapes, apples, plums, berries, cherries, green beans, asparagus, carrots, cucumbers, lettuce, zucchini and corn. Instead of typical dairy products, try unenriched rice milk, cream cheese, sherbet or nondairy creamer. Foods high in phosphorus to limit or avoid are dairy products, beer, dark colas, organ meats, processed meats, dried beans or peas, nuts, seeds, quick breads, bran and whole-grain products.

Secondly, dialysis patients can also try Chinese medicine therapies to reduce high phosphorus level through recovering kidneys’own functions. Nowadays, Chinese medicine therapies including Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, circle therapy, medicated bath, enema therapy, foot bath, oral Chinese herbal medicine, etc are commonly used in the clinic to help kidney failure patients. Now take Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy for an example.

Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy aims at repairing kidney damage and recovering renal function by a series of special functions such as anti-inflammation, anti-coagulation, degradation, improving blood circulation, removing blood stasis, expanding blood vessels, promoting DNA replication and offering kidneys nutrients. What is more, foreign patients say it just likes Chinese massage, very comfortable.

There is no doubt that high phosphorus will be naturally lowered with the gradual recovery of kidney function. While the most important thing is that dialysis times can be reduced, also there are many successful cases that dialysis treatment is stopped in the clinic if kidney function can be increased to an ideal level.
