Is Hair Loss Caused by Dialysis

2015-07-09 15:26

Is Hair Loss Caused by DialysisI am 35 years old and I started dialysis last year. But, since starting dialysis my hair seems to be falling out pretty bad. Its already to the point of a receding hairline. I just want it to stop, I was just wondering if anyone else deals with hair loss on dialysis. One of patients asked us this question.

For patients who are on dialysis, they are not allowed to eat foods that are high in protein, because high protein diet will increase the workload of kidneys. A low protein diet means that a person may not meet their required diet means that a person may not meet their required daily needs of zinc and zinc deficiency contributes to hair loss.

Dialysis is a procedure which clears away from wastes products and toxic substances by filtering blood. During dialysis process, plenty vitamins and nutrition will lost during dialysis process which are important for hair growth.

From the above mentioned, dialysis can causes hair loss.

So, it is important for patients to keep iron supplement. The person who are lack iron are always will suffer from hair loss. the foods that are high in iron are yellow beans, spinage, bananas, potato. But, for people who are high in potassium are not allowed to take these foods. Patients also can consume more black sesame, so as to prevent hair loss.

If patients want to solve the problem fundamentally, they should try their best to have less dialysis or even stop dialysis. In order to solve this problem, Beijing Tongshantang Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine provides patients a new treatment to deal with it called Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. In order to improve its efficiency, the Chinese herbs should be refined into powder and then collected into two medicated bags which is put on patients’ low back area, with the help of osmotic machine, the active substances can get inside kidneys through skin. By improving kidney function, patients can get rid of dialysis. Only by this way can patients keep away from dialysis.
