As to dialysis treatment, there is something patients should know:

Dialysis treatment can help Renal Failure patients eliminate the wastes and excessive fluids and maintain their lives to some extent. What should patients expect after stopping dialysis? Death from Kidney Failure is usually painless. Without the dialysis treatment, toxic substances and fluid will accumulate in the body, which can make patients feel more tired. The fluid build-up can make it more difficult for patients to breathe. In that case, the doctor will prescribe diuretics or ultrafiltration to remove fluid. If patients feel any discomfort, pain medicines may be prescribed for patients.

As a matter of fact, dialysis can not treat stage 5 Kidney Failure, that is because dialysis is unable to repair the kidney damage and enhance kidney function. After a long term of dialysis, the kidney damage will become more and more severe and less and less kidney function will be left. Some patients with stage 5 Kidney Failure are waiting for the kidney donor while they are undergoing dialysis treatment. Renal Failure patients can not depend on dialysis for a long time, but the important thing is that they can be treated by a treatment which can help them enhance kidney function after they stop the dialysis treatment, otherwise it will be very dangerous.

If you decide to stop dialysis, then make sure you can be treated by such a treatment which can help you enhance the kidney function. If you are interested in Chinese herbals and you have not tried them, you can contact us by leaving us a message.
