When Dialysis Stops Working

When Dialysis Stops WorkingPatient with end stage kidney disease will be recommended to accept dialysis, which is an effective way to prolong patient’s lifetime. But when dialysis will stop working?

As we know, end stage kidney failure means patient’s kidney function is severely damaged, so the rate of wastes and toxins accumulating in patient’s body is much faster than the rate that can be excreted by patient’s kidneys, and that is why patient needs dialysis.

Even though dialysis is an effective way to prolong patient’s lifetime, but most patients will also die several years later, which means dialysis can not save patient’s life, and it will not be able to prolong patient’s lifetime one day.

So, when will dialysis can not prolong patient’s lifetime?

Dialysis is a kidney replacement therapy, which means it can help clear the wastes and toxins in patient’s blood. While this therapy has no effect in improving patient’s kidney function, so patient’s kidney function will decrease continuously.

While if patient accepts dialysis, it will has its effect, so dialysis will not stop working unless patient quit treatment. On the other hand, dialysis can cause many side effects, and that often cause patient to quit dialysis, like dialysis using syndrome, dialysis imbalance syndrome, and patient also often has heart problems, like heart failure. And many patients quit dialysis because they are not willing to suffer these problems.

Besides, dialysis patient often has many complications, while dialysis cannot solve these problems, and that is a major reason of death cases.

Thereby, dialysis can always have its effect, and it is effective in prolonging patient’s lifetime. But it can not save patient’s life, so it is important for patient to take measures to avoid dialysis in advance.
