2013-07-24 17:46

Headache And Nausea During DialysisHeadache and nausea are the two common complains among dialysis patients? They are torturous and affect patients’ life quality directly. Well, why patients have these discomforts during or after dialysis? Will dialysis patients suffer other discomforts aside from them?

Why dialysis patients have headache and nausea?

Both headache and nausea are bothersome side effects of dialysis. For headache, it usually occurs as as the result of hypertension, rapid fluid or electrolyte shift, quick clearance of body fluid and nervous tension and so on. And for nausea, the most common causes are hypotension, uremia and disequilibrium syndrome and so on.

They are common side effects of dialysis, however, this does not mean all the dialysis patients have these discomforts. In some cases of dialysis, these torturous problems can be avoided effectively wit comprehensive measures.

Other possible discomforts caused by dialysis?

Dialysis indeed helps a lot, but disappointed it causes many discomforts while helping sustain patients’ life. For dialysis patients, aside from headache and nausea, they also run high risk for:

* Muscle cramp or restless leg syndrome

* Skin itching

* Chest pain

* Fever and chills

* Coma caused by low blood pressure

* Sleeping problems

* Infection

* Tiredness or fatigue

* Low sex drive

* Bone and joint pain

Dialysis is helpful, but risky. Also, once patients start dialysis, they need to do it regularly. What is worse, the survival rate for dialysis patients decreases over time. Dialysis is usually adopted when kidneys lose almost all the functions, so protecting residual kidney function is the key point to prevent dialysis for patients whose illness condition is not serious enough to start dialysis. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is a herbal treatment that has been proven to be able to improve kidney function. Therefore, it is highly recommended if you are a kidney disease patient and still have a certain kidney function.
