If you have a full or part-time work when you learn that your kidneys are failing and need to undergo dialysis, some of your urgent questions may be your job.

Generally speaking, people who can continue to work feel better and more easily maintain their lifestyle if you make your treatment schedule fit your job. In addition, whether can you work or not needs to depend on your own illness condition. Below, we’ll tell you how to keep your job when you have kidney failure.
Fight fatigue and anemia
Are you feeling too tried to work now, even before you need dialysis? Along with decreased renal function, it will make less of erythropoietin (EPO) which can promote the production of red blood cells. As a result, anemia is caused. What’s more, it is also associated with sever fatigue, shortness of breath, muscle weakness and so on. Therefore, fighting anemia and fatigue is essential for kidney failure or dialysis patients. Don’t let this happen to you! Ask your doctor to test your blood for anemia.if your hemoglobin is below normal, ask for the medical treatment. In most cases, it will be injections of a drug called Aranesp or Procrit. Some people may need iron, too.
Find a suitable job to fit your treatment schedule
If you have a job with flexible hours, a job that allows you to work from work or you work at a night shift, in-center hemodialysis may be right for you.
Home hemodialysis (HHD)
It is another flexible home dialysis treatment, because it is performed in the comfort of your home. You can do treatments at any time during any time.
Getting back to work with kidney disease
Working is good for you. Sometimes continuing to work can help you feel happy, make you less depressed, and have more chances to visit with others. In such condition, it provides good external environment for the dialysis treatment.
