Can Dialysis Help Kidney Self Repair

2013-03-22 08:39

Can Dialysis Help Kidney Self RepairCan dialysis help kidney self repair? Dialysis will be recommended by doctors when their patients develop Chronic Renal Failure. Everything has two sides, and dialysis is no exception.

Can dialysis help kidney self repair?

No, it can not. Dialysis can only help Chronic Renal Failure patients eliminate the excess fluid and waste products to some extent.

Why can not dialysis help kidney self repair?

Our kidneys have many functions in addition to filtering out wastes, such as regulating an acid-base balance via the bicarbonate system; stimulating red blood cell production via the release of the hormone erythropoietin; Regulating blood pressure via both urinary excretion of wastes and initiating the renin-angiotensen hormone regulatory system and so on. While dialysis can only replace one part of kidney function. It can not replace our kidneys wholly.

The root reason why dialysis can not help kidney self repair is because the kidney damage is neglected. After a long-term of dialysis treatment, patients will experience decreased urine output, which is because more kidney function is lost. So For Renal Failure Patients, Dialysis Is Not A Long Plan for The Future.

Whether can dialysis be stopped?

Yes, dialysis can be stopped if the kidney damage can be repaired and kidney function can be enhanced. Nowadays, more and more dialysis patients begin to decide to stop dialysis treatment. Kidney disease experts recommend Chinese herbal medicines. Through promoting blood circulation, removing blood stasis, anti-inflammation, anti-coagulation, degradation and providing nutrition for damaged kidneys, Chinese herbal medicines can help improve the kidney function gradually. If the kidney function can be enhanced gradually, the dialysis frequency will be reduced and finally it is likely to get rid of dialysis.

However, the treatment effect of Chinese herbal medicines can be affected by many factors, such as your primary disease, whether you still have some urine. You can tell us more about your test report.
