Is Dialysis A Better Choice for Kidney FailureNormally, when kidney disease progress into kidney failure, doctors may suggest patients to undergo dialysis to extend their lives. Well, is dialysis a better choice for kidney failure?

Firstly, we need to figure out what does kidney failure mean.

Kidney failure refers to a condition in which kidneys fail to work. Sometimes, it is called end-stage renal disease(ESRD). In this advanced stage, many discomforts will come into being, such as, poor appetite, nausea, vomiting, fatigue, headache, high blood pressure, metabolic acidosis, itchy skin and so on. If left untreated, death will be the final result.

Secondly, we need to find out the pros and cons of dialysis.

To replace the work of healthy kidneys, dialysis will be suggested. Generally, it contains two parts, hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis. During the procedure, wastes, extra fluid, toxins, etc can be discharged out of the body, in addition, it can also help control BP and keep balance of minerals such as potassium, sodium and so on.

However, it can just help remove certain amounts of mini-molecular toxins like creatinine, BUN and uric acid, and the middle-sized toxins and macromolecular toxins still accumulate in the body. Additionally, some of the potential complications like dialysis disequilibrium syndrome, muscle cramps, low blood pressure, blood clotting, infections, hemorrhage may appear, which affect the life quality largely.

Thirdly, is there a better choice for kidney failure?

Under certain circumstances, a kidney transplant can also be used. It refers to a procedure that places a healthy kidney from another person into your body. Unluckily, it is not easy to find an appropriate donor and the cost is high.

After years of research and experience accumulation, a set of stereoscopic therapy of TCM has been created, which include cycle therapy, hot compress therapy, foot bath therapy, full bath therapy, enema therapy, Oral Chinese Medicine Therapy and moxibustion therapy. Besides, blood-purification technique is used to excrete both middle-sized toxins and macromolecular toxins. In this way, a favorable internal environment can be created. Eventually, kidney function can be promoted and dialysis will be avoided.
