Does dialysis cause dizziness? It is often asked by dialysis patients. Some patients are suffering from dizziness during or after dialysis. Now let’s talk about this question.
Does dialysis cause dizziness?
Dialysis is used when kidney function drops to 15% or even less. Those patients who are troubled by serious symptoms, like high blood pressure, swelling, itchy skin, muscle cramps, etc are also suggested to do dialysis. Adequate dialysis can help relieve some symptoms and control the progression of the disease.
However, dialysis is also the thing that many patients scare. This is because dialysis will bring patients a lot of side-effects, which will drive them crazy. Dizziness is one of the common side-effects of dialysis.
How does dialysis cause dizziness?
Dialysis helps kidney discharge some of the extra toxins and water in blood. If patients do not well control the water intake during dialysis intervals and drink too much water, the extra water will stay in your body. When you are on dialysis, the extra water will be discharged at one time. The sudden drop of fluids in blood will cause low blood pressure, which is the main cause of dizziness.
How to deal with dizziness during or after dialysis?
If you are on dialysis, you should well manage the water intake. If you do not have much urine output, you should limit the water intake to keep good dry weight.
Tell your doctor if you have the feeling of dizziness during or after dialysis. He will make some changes to your next dialysis.
If you are taking anti-hypertensive drugs, talk to your attending doctor whether you can take them before dialysis. Usually, those drugs are not allowed to taken before dialysis for they will cause low blood pressure, which will lead to dizziness.
