Dialysis at Night Is More Effective

Dialysis at Night Is More EffectiveWhen is the best time to do dialysis? In the day or at night? In this article, we will give you the answer.

A new Canadian study shows that kidney patients can have a better effect if given hemodialysis during nighttime sleep.

One of the authors of the study, nephrologist Gulleton, said that if patients were able to do hemodialysis at home at night, they could improve their quality of life, enhance heart function, lower blood pressure and reduce drug dependence.

Studies have shown that night dialysis can reduce left ventricular hypertrophy after six months of experiment. From a medical standpoint, said Gulleton, a heavy heart means it doesn't work properly.

Traditional hemodialysis mode requires patients to go to the dialysis center three times a week (about 4 hours each time) for dialysis treatment, but night dialysis only needs a special machine to be connected before going to bed, and using sleep time to do dialysis for about 7 hours each time.

Gulleton said that the reason for the better effect of night hemodialysis may be that traditional dialysis requires 12 hours a week, while night dialysis takes at least 36 hours, which can reduce the impact on blood pressure after prolonging.

However, long-term dialysis can still bring you a lot of side effects and complications, such as skin itching, pernicious anemia, cardiovascular disease, decreased renal function, etc.

If you are fed up with dialysis, what treatment can you take?

In our hospital, Toxin-Removing Therapy is often used into renal failure treatment. This is a systemic Chinese medicine treatment, which aims at improving internal environment. It can increase urination, improve bowel movement and make sweating to eliminate waste products and extra fluid from body. It can also expand blood vessels and remove stasis to improve blood circulation and increase blood flow into kidneys so that enough essential elements such as oxygen, nutrients and active ingredients of medicine can be transported into nidus to speed up kidney recovery. Moreover, it can regulate the balance of anti-inflammatory cytokines and pro-inflammatory cytokines to reduce renal inflammation and control the disease from getting worse.

After about one week’s treatment, there will be obvious changes in urine. It will become smelly and cloudy due to the existence of waste products.

After about half month’s treatment, high creatinine, urea and uric acid level will be reduced.

After about one month’s treatment, your renal disease will be under control, and renal condition will get improved gradually.
