What Are the Psychological Side Effect Right After HemodialysisAre there any psychological side effects of hemodialysis? In some cases, dialysis patients indeed have some psychological problems.

Once a person told me that his uncle who had take hemodialysis 30 minutes, and then they noticed him speechless and a moment after he was singing a nursery rhyme. It seems he’s out of his mind.

Some patients may experience the same thing and want to know the causes and how to deal with these problems. I would like share with you my views. Any questions, please email to us at or leave a message below. Our doctor will reply you within 24 hours.

Depression of hemodialysis

Depressive symptoms and depression are the most frequent psychologic problems reported by hemodialysis patients. According to survey, depression may be related to abnormal PTH (Parathyroid Hormone) level, calcium and phosphorous metabolic disorders, and low immunity. These are the objective factors, and they play a small role in causing depression during dialysis.

There are some subjective factors such as the relationship between the patients and health-care providers, patient’s attitude towards the disease and cares from friends or families.

Management for depression during dialysis

First of all, patients should talk with their friends or families, telling their anxiety about the disease. It is a good choice to ask help for a psychologist. In addition, the doctor, nurses and other cares should help the patient build confidence for fighting against disease.

Speaking this, I recommend patients to take traditional Chinese herbs. We have used for almost 30 years and have innovated several natural ways to help patients improve kidney function and reduce frequency of dialysis. Now, more and more patients have come to China for our natural treatment. If you are also interested in them, please leave a message below.
