Can Dialysis Improve Damaged Kidney Function

2013-11-29 10:24| Font Size A A A

Dialysis is the common method used in clinic for patients with kidney disease. Some patients with kidney failure are often treated with dialysis. But can dialysis improve kidney function?

What are the functions of dialysis?

Dialysis acts as an artificial kidney. It functions to replace some of the lost kidney functions. When the kidney can not work normally, that is it cannot remove waste products and toxins as well as extra water from blood and keep electrolyte balance, then dialysis is used to do these jobs to relieve symptoms and prevent some complications.

When to start dialysis?

Normally, we know that dialysis is needed when the illness goes into kidney failure. However, not all patients with dialysis need dialysis. If patients have no obvious symptoms like nausea, vomiting, poor appetite and with normal urine output, dialysis is not needed. But if patients have obvious symptoms or have serious primary disease, like diabetes, high blood pressure, dialysis is needed. When the serum potassium level is above 6.5mmol/L and with severe symptoms, dialysis is especially needed.

Can dialysis improve kidney function?

Proper and complete dialysis plays an important role in relieving symptoms, controlling the progression of primary diseases and preventing complications. Whereas, dialysis have no such function of improving kidney function.

On the contrary, long-term dialysis will further damage kidney function. The kidney will rely on dialysis to do jobs. Dialysis is just an replacement method, it cannot repair the damaged kidney cells, thus it does nothing to improve kidney function.

Is there a treatment to improve kidney function? Chinese herbs are effective, especially the innovative one---Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, which aims at repairing the damaged kidney cells and improving kidney function.
