2015-04-25 11:02

Muscle Cramping in Dialysis: Causes & TreatmentsMuscle cramping can be very painful and it occurs frequently when patients are on dialysis. Muscle cramping affects patients’ normal life severely. This may be the reason why that all of patients want to get rid of muscle cramping.

Muscle camping can result from the process of dialysis as it relates to the rapid removal of fluid from the individual by the dialysis process. The causes of cramping is more likely to be caused by fluid overload in the body. When fluid overload happens, dialysis machine is programmed to remove the excess fluid in the prescribed time, usually going for four hours. Therefore, it is more important for patients to focus on reducing the amount of fluid between dialysis sessions. Reductions on fluid gain between dialysis sessions is helpful in reducing muscle cramping.

What is the proper treatment for muscle cramping in kidney failure?

Quinine is a medication which have been used for many years to relive muscle cramping in dialysis. And it is effective in reliving muscle cramping temporarily. It is necessary for patients with muscle cramping to take sufficient vitamin E, which is also helpful to alleviate muscle crapping.

However, what I want to tell you is that the most fundamental way is to help patients relive muscle cramping is to get rid of dialysis as much as possible. And the the best way to keep away from dialysis is to improve kidney function. Many renal experts from Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital provides patients a series of natural treatments on the basis of Traditional Chinese Medicine. This is a external application. The main materials in this therapy are picked up from the natural plants, so they have less or even no less adverse effects to patients. More importantly, the natural treatment here aims at improve kidney function by promoting blood vessels, dilating blood vessels, repairing the diseased cells and body tissues. As long as the kidney function improves, patients have a lot of stopping dialysis.
