Numbness in hands can occasionally occur during or after dialysis, which make dialysis patients more worry. Is the condition serious? Now, let’s have a discussion.
Dialysis is a life-saving treatment for end stage renal disease which can help the damaged kidney filter blood to some extent. But more and more end stage renal disease or Kidney Failure patients decide to stop dialysis due to its potential adverse effects.
Why does dialysis cause numbness in hands?
Numbness in hands may be related to fistula. Before hemodialysis is performed, a fistula is established to connect vein and artery. In the first day, the blood circulation can not recover immediately. So you will feel some coldness or numbness in the hands with the fistula.
Another cause of numbness in hands is the steal syndrome. Steal syndrome is diversion or “steal” of blood from the distal circulation. In addition, any restriction of blood flow through fistula may cause numbness in hands or other problems. In order to prevent the condition, patients should follow the tips to improve the blood flow through fistula after the fistula is built in dialysis.
Well then, how to deal with the condition?
For patients on dialysis, the following things can be done so as to improve blood flow through fistula.
1.Avoid tight clothing that could put pressure on your access area.
2.Do not sleep with your access arm under your head or pillow.
3.Check the pulse in your access daily.
Actually, dialysis is the not the only one treatment for chronic kidney disease or Kidney Failure patients.
