Is Dialysis 3 Times a Week Recommendable for ESRD PatientDialysis is a very common life-saving method for ESRD (End Stage Renal Disease) patients. There are two types: Hemodialysis (HD) and Peritoneal Dialysis (PD). Is dialysis three times a week recommendable for ESRD patient?

Overview about dialysis

♦ Hemodialysis: In hemodialysis, an artificial kidney (hemodialyzer) is used to remove waste and extra chemicals and fluid from your blood. Usually, each hemodialysis treatment lasts about four hours and is done three times per week.

♦ Peritoneal Dialysis: In this type of dialysis, your blood is cleaned inside your body. There are two major types of PD: CAPD and APD. You may need four or five times a day at home and/or at work.

Is hemodialysis possible for ESRD patients?

ESRD patients should talk with the doctor to decide which kind of dialysis is suitable for them. Patients may experience some discomforts such as headache, dizziness, muscle cramps, nausea, vomiting or infection, etc. Let your doctor know when you have these discomforts.

Will dialysis help treatment the ESRD?

No. Dialysis does some of the work of healthy kidneys, but it does not treatment your kidney disease. You will need to have dialysis treatments for your whole life unless you are able to get a kidney transplant.

Are there any natural remedies for ESRD?

Fortunately, the answer is YES. Dialysis is not the perfect way, since it cannot solve the underlying problem. In that case, I recommend you to take traditional Chinese herbs. We have almost thirty years of experience in this field. Based on Chinese herb, we innovate several external therapies such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Foot Bath, Cycle Therapy and Stem Cell Therapy, etc. Combing our oral medicines with therapies, we can treat kidney disease patients through improving blood circulation and repairing damaged renal tissues.
