Can Kidney Function Be Reversed When You Are On Dialysis

2013-09-02 16:06

Can kidney function be reversed when you are on dialysis? It is known to all that dialysis is required to replace damaged kidney clean blood, so dialysis always implies serious kidney damages and poor kidney function. Well, is it possible for a dialysis patient to get his kidney function reversed?

We have to admit that Chronic Kidney Failure is incurable and as of now it is impossible to normalize kidney function when one is on dialysis. However we can get impaired kidney function improved with a series of medical measures and at present, it is only practicable for dialysis patients who still have a certain kidney function.

Kidney is a bean-shaped organ with function of filtering blood and producing urine. Failed kidney can not expel toxins out of the blood, so dialysis is needed to replace damaged kidney to realize this goal. For people with no urine output, their kidneys have been damaged completely. In that case, no blood can flow into kidney and also no methods can be used to improve kidney function. Whereas, for dialysis patients who still have a certain kidney function, there are bloodstream in their kidney. Under such a condition, it is possible for medicines to flow into kidney to repair injured kidney intrinsic cells along with blood.

In medicine, many herbs can be used to help dialysis patients reverse kidney function and in many cases, they indeed show great treatment effects. Facts proved that it is quite possible for some dialysis patients to get off dialysis with the improvement of kidney function. In some severe cases, although patients fail to get rid of dialysis, their dialysis frequency is reduced greatly after the treatment. GFR can be used to learn about the residual kidney function and generally speaking, patients are allowed to get off dialysis when their GFR is increased to be higher than 15.

Lastly, although kidney function can be improved when one is on dialysis, but this is true only when the patient still have a certain kidney function. Therefore, if you meet this condition, seizing the chance to reverse kidney function is very significant.
