Renal Failure & Nephritis Can Dialysis Help Difficulty Breathing

2013-12-31 01:04

Difficulty breathing can occur due to a variety of reasons. Patients with Renal Failure and Nephritis may experience this problem. Let us discuss whether Dialysis can help relieve this condition. Want to get free and professional advice? Consult our online kidney doctor now.

What causes difficulty breathing in Renal Failure and Nephritis?

There are mainly two reasons including:

- Fluid retention in the lungs. When the severely damaged kidneys fail to remove excess fluid, fluids will build up in the body. If the fluids collect in the lungs, lung function will decrease, thus resulting in shortness of breath.

- Anemia. With insufficient supply of red blood cells which carry oxygen, the body will get oxygen starved, leading to breathing problem.

Can dialysis help difficulty breathing in Renal Failure and Nephritis?

Yes. Dialysis is the artificial replacement for lost kidney function (renal replacement therapy), so it is helpful to eliminate unwanted water from the blood. In this case, difficulty breathing can be relieved in a certain degree.

However, in order to eliminate the problem, while undergoing dialysis, patients with Renal Failure and Nephritis should also take effective strategy to preserve the residual renal function and try to increase the kidney function. When the kidneys can work better over time, symptoms of breathing problem will disappear naturally.

It is always recommended to consult the kidney doctor for the best solution of difficulty breathing in Renal Failure and Nephritis. If you still have anything unclear, please Email us at kidney-support@hotmail.com or leave a message in the below. Take care please!
