How to prolong dialysis patient’s lifespan?
● Maintain a kidney-friendly diet. During dialysis, the health care provider will closely monitor what patients take. Fluid, sodium, potassium and phosphorous are generally restricted. Protein intake ranged from 0.6 to 0.8 gram per kg of body weight. Fluid intake is calculate based on the patient’s dry weight and urine output.
● Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)
Dialysis is always permanent unless patients can receive kidney transplant. Dialysis can only remove wastes in arteries and veins, while traditional Chinese herbs can purify the whole blood circulation.
The main function of herbal medicine is to expand blood vessels, reduce inflammation and degrade extracellular matrixes, thus increasing blood circulation. Then, kidneys can get enough blood volume and oxygen to repair damaged renal tissues. As a result, kidney function improves, and wastes and toxins in the blood can be filtered naturally and adequately.
