Dialysis is an important substitutive therapy for patients with Renal Failure. With their renal function declining, the toxins produced will build up in the blood stream and reach dangerous levels. In order to prolong their lives, the patients have to adopt dialysis therapy. However, is dialysis a perfect therapy for patients with Renal Failure?
Frankly speaking, dialysis actually brings many benefits to patients on
dialysis. It does bring a measured amount of relief from the buildup of wastes
and water in their bodies so as to maintain their lives.
However, dialysis is just like a curse because without it the patients may
die in only days. The patients have to give their living right totally to a
machine, which brings much pressure to both mind and body. They have to disturb
their routine life schedule, have to give up wonderful activities and so on.
Moreover, some patients think that they become a burden to their families, which
put great psychological pressure on their patients themselves.
What’s worse, dialysis can not improve their renal function at all. Although
it clears the wastes in their bodies, it can not repair the damaged kidney
cells. As a result, their kidneys just like worn machines, as they do not have
repaired very well, they will lose their functions further. At that time, there
is no other option but kidney transplant.
In addition, dialysis causes a series of complications such as hypotension,
infection, dizziness, and anemia and so on. These complications bring excessive
torment to patients. However, that is not to say dialysis is not useful. If the
patient's body have a lot of waste product, and his kidneys have damaged
seriously which can't discharge the waste product. At that time, patient should
receive dialysis. If the patient's kidneys are not damaged seriously, and he can
discharge the waste product by himself, he don't need to undergo dialysis.
Therefore, if the patients should adopt the proper treatment to avoid the
dialysis when their illness condition is not very seriously.
