What to Do for Seizure During Dialysis TreatmentMany patients complain that they always have seizure during dialysis and they hate dialysis! If you also have this problem, you can do something to get relief of seizures. Before that, you’d better know the causes of seizures in dialysis.

Causes of seizures in dialysis

1. Uremic toxins accumulation

Even thought dialysis can help you remove the wastes and toxins in the blood, it cannot work as well as a healthy kidney. Therefore, there are still some uremic toxins build up in the body. Those harmful substances will cause nerve damage, leading to seizures.

2. Electrolyte disorder

Damaged kidneys fail to keep the balance of potassium, phosphorous and calcium level. These abnormal mineral levels in the blood will cause many symptoms and seizures is not rare.

3. Side effects of drugs

Drugs taken by dialysis patients like erythropoietin, carbapenem and ertapenem are likely to cause seizures. You should be cautious about the dosage and frequency of drugs.

Treatment of seizures in dialysis

1. Home remedies

Taking some stretching movements before the dialysis is helpful. If you have seizures during the dialysis, you can take a warm&cold towel to wrap your arms or legs for about 10-15 minutes. This can help improve micro blood circulation and relieve the painful feeling.

2. Control your diet

Reduce sodium intake but increase high-quality protein intake to reduce the risk of hypoproteinemia.

3. Keep your weight

4. Strictly control your fluid intake

5. Improve kidney function

This is the most effective treatment for relieving symptoms in dialysis. For that purpose, I recommend you to take Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. The effective ingredients of the medicines can expand the blood vessels, reduce inflammation and coagulation. These methods are to improve blood circulation so that to accelerate the discharge of wastes and toxins. Therefore, seizures can be relieved by improving kidney function. You can reduce the frequency of dialysis through this therapy.
