For stage 4 CKD patients, they are no strangers to an alternative therapy named dialysis. However, can dialysis improve kidney function in stage 4 CKD?
To be frank, dialysis can’t help improve kidney function. But this does not mean this treatment is useless. As an alternative therapy, it can help discharge micromolecule toxins like creatinine, uric acid, BUN, etc out of the body, therefore, it can help relieve the discomforts and extend survival periods to a certain degree. For stage 4 CKD patients, when they are experiencing the following situations, urgent dialysis is needed to reduce the incidence of complications. For instance, the potassium level is above 6.5mmol/L; pulmonary edema; heart failure; anuria; metabolic acidosis PH is less than 7.2; uremic pericarditis and so on.
Why dialysis fails to improve my kidney function in stage 4 CKD?
In addition to filtering blood by excreting wastes and preserving useful substances, the kidneys also have other significant roles, such as, adjust blood pressure, produce hormones, maintain the balance of water and electrolyte, responsible for the production of urine and so on. Even if dialysis can help discharge wastes to a certain degree, other functions can’t be performed properly. And that’s the reason why dialysis can’t increase kidney function.
What should stage 4 CKD patients do to improve kidney function?
In the medical profession, experts in this field usually say urine is hope. Here, nephrologists of our Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital recommend patients with Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy to repair the injured renal cells and improve kidney function. What’s more, it is also beneficial for the production of urine. For more information, you are welcomed to email us email@example.com, remember that we are always here to help. Wish you a good day!
