Prognosis for Kidney Failure Patients on Dialysis

2013-10-07 13:41

How about the prognosis for kidney failure patients on dialysis? Once kidney failure patients begin dialysis treatment, it is natural that they want to know what the prognosis will be. Here we will help you find the answer.

Everything is a double-edged sword, and the prognosis for kidney failure patients on dialysis will be no exception. Why do we say like this?

Doctors will recommend kidney failure patients dialysis treatment according to their specific conditions. If kidney failure patients are suffering from some severe symptoms or complications like severe edema, shortness of breath, heart problem, etc or they are in some certain situations like BUN levels exceed 54mmol/L or serum potassium level is more than 7mmol/L, etc, then urgent dialysis treatment should be started. Otherwise more severe consequences may be caused, which even can be life-threatening. So one prognosis for kidney failure patients on dialysis is that some symptoms can be relieved and their lives can be saved.

Then how about the other prognosis for kidney failure patients on dialysis? Well, though dialysis can be very necessary and important sometimes, we have to say it is not a long-term method. That is because our healthy kidneys have many functions, while dialysis treatment can only replace one part of these functions to eliminate wastes and excess fluid out of body. To some extent, long-term dialysis treatment can delay the condition. Kidney failure patients will notice the decreased urine output with dialysis treatment, which indicates the continue loss of kidney function.

Whether kidney failure patients begin or stop dialysis treatment is their rights. But we have to say they should go and experience dialysis treatment if they are in those situations we mentioned above. But nowadays, more and more kidney failure patients decide to stop dialysis treatment because of various of reasons. However, dialysis treatment should not be stopped immediately, it needs time. If you want to stop dialysis treatment, to repair kidney damage and recover renal function is the key. And Chinese kidney disease experts may recommend you Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy and Immunotherapy.
