Can kidneys heal themselves while going through dialysis? Dialysis is regarded as an imperative treatment for people whose kidneys are injured seriously, so many kidney failure patients wonder if kidneys can heal themselves while going through dialysis. As for this topic, here we will give an introduction.
Can kidneys heal themselves while going through dialysis?
First of all, before answering this question, I’d like to explain why kidney failure patients need to do dialysis. We all know kidney is the organ that serves us as a filter. It helps us filter blood and during this process, wastes produced in our body will be discharged excessively. When kidney tissues are damaged, they fail to perform filtration function, which can lead to the buildup of toxins in blood. Dialysis is the most commonly used blood purification method and it works by filtering blood outside the body through a dialysis machine. For kidney failure patients, dialysis is needed as toxins in their blood which should have been expelled by their kidneys can be discharged successfully through this method.
From the above explanation, we can learn that dialysis only works as a filter for kidney failure patients, and it can not help to repair injured kidney function. Therefore, kidneys can not heal themselves while going through dialysis.
How to heal kidney with dialysis?
For people with dialysis, one thing they must be clear is that kidney failure can not be cured according to current medical technology, but kidney function can be improved greatly if they still have a certain kidney function. Generally speaking, dialysis is suggested when only 15% kidney function is left, so for kidney failure patients, as long as their kidney function is improved to 15%, they can get off dialysis. In some severe cases, patients fail to get rid of dialysis, but with improvement of kidney function, their dialysis frequency can be reduced effectively.
As for the treatment for dialysis patients, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is suggested. It is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), but different from TCM, herbs in this treatment are used externally. So far this treatment has been used to treat kidney disease patients from more than 60 countries. Therefore, if you are a dialysis patient and still have a certain function, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy will be preferable.
