Can Dialysis Treat Kidney Failure from Its Root

2016-02-17 16:56

Can Dialysis Treat Kidney Failure from Its RootCan dialysis treat kidney failure from its root? As we all know, dialysis is a life-saving method for kidney failure patients by eliminating a part of toxins and fluid from body. However, it cannot cure kidney failure nor improve renal function.

Why dialysis cannot treat kidney failure from its root?

Our kidneys are a pair of sophisticated filtering organs in human body. They work 24 hours a day to filter out toxins in different sizes from our blood including micromolecular, mid-molecular and macromolecular toxins completely. Hence, the blood in circulation is healthy.

In addition, dialysis only can remove those micromolecular toxins like creatinine, urea etc. A lot of mid-molecular toxins and macromolecular toxins will still linger in the blood. These toxins not only can worsen your kidneys, but also can affect other body organs and systems adversely. That is why many dialysis patients usually die of dialysis complications.

What's more, as your own kidneys are replaced with dialysis, your own kidneys will stop working gradually. As a result, your kidney size will shrink and your urine volume will also drop. By then, there will no blood flow through your kidneys.

Can dialysis patient get rid of it?

In fact, for patient who has not been on dialysis for too long and their overall condition seems good, with an effective treatment in time, the renal function will certainly can be improved, and then the patient will get a chance to get rid of dialysis. However, for patients who have taken dialysis for a long time, it is hard to get rid of dialysis but they also can reduce the dialysis times thus to live a quality life.
