When Should Dialysis Be Started for IgA Nephropathy Patients

When Should Dialysis Be Started for IgA Nephropathy PatientsFor kidney patients, they are no stranger for dialysis. Dialysis is a kidney replacement treatment which can help the damaged kidneys to filter waste products from the blood so as to prevent further damage and relieve your body malaise. When should dialysis be started for IgA Nephropathy patients?

Generally speaking, when your kidneys are damaged, they are no longer able to remove waste and excess fluid from your bloodstream efficiently. Wastes such as nitrogen and creatinine build up in the bloodstream. They may cause malfunction of all your body systems, such as cardiovascular system and respiratory system. In such case, dialysis should be started.

There are some indicators that should be carefully monitored.

-Dialysis is usually recommended when your GFR is less than 15%. In such case, dialysis helps protect your remaining kidney function.

-When your creatinine is as high as 6-7 mg/dL or when creatinine clearance is less than 10 ml/min, dialysis should be started.

-When your blood potassium level is more than 6.5 mmol/L and metabolic acidosis pH is lower than 7.2, dialysis is needed.

-When you have a lot of body malaise, dialysis should be started.

When the concentration of waste products and toxins in the blood is very high, you will have nausea, vomiting, headache, weakness, shortness of breath, pain all over the body, severe edema, and other body malaise. When you feel very ill, dialysis should be started to relieve those symptoms.

When should dialysis be started for IgA Nephropathy patients? It depends on your medical condition. Though dialysis can maintain your life, it is not a perfect treatment. Long-term dialysis has many complications, such as muscle cramp, skin itch, heart failure, etc. That is why many dialysis patients want to give up dialysis. In Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital, there are many therapies to help you repair the damaged kidneys and improve kidney function, such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Immunotherapy, Biotherapy, etc. If you would like to learn more information about our treatment, please contact us at igacure@gmail.com.
