Can A Person Do Dialysis Only Twice A Week
Dialysis is a way to maintain life for kidney failure patients. Some patients do dialysis once a week, while some do it twice a week. For most patients, they do it three times a week. Can a person do dialysis only twice a week? After reading this article, you will find out the answer.

How often dialysis you do depends on your urine output, the increasing rate of serum creatinine level, residual kidney function, cardiovascular stability, water drinking, etc. Generally speaking, dialysis plan of three times a week and four hours per time is preferred. It can not only ensure adequate dialysis, but also make you lead a normal life. If you reduce dialysis times, waste products and extra fluid can not be filtered out of body timely so that they build up in body, leading to swelling, indigestion, nausea, vomiting and other discomforts. Besides, it is not good for you to preserve your residual kidney function. The less your renal function, the more dialysis you need, and the lower your living quality.

If you really want to reduce dialysis times, you should restore a portion of renal function.
