 Proper Time To Begin DialysisWhat is proper time to begin dialysis? Choosing correct time to begin dialysis is very important. Now follow us to see the details.

Chronic kidney failure is divided into 4 stages, namely, renal insufficient compensatory period, renal insufficiency decompensated period, renal failure stage and uremia stage. If your condition has been in uremia stage, you should begin dialysis properly. Specifically, the best time to begin dialysis is serum creatinine level is less than 8mg/dL and creatinine clearance rate is less than 10ml/min. If you take timely treatment, it can reduce side effects after dialysis and reduce complications caused by toxins. This is good for your body recovery, improves your high quality life and decrease the total cost.

The time for starting dialysis should be based on patients’ illness condition. For example, if kidney failure is caused by diabetes, it will develop quickly in late stage and also complications will occur, thus dialysis should be started earlier. Dialysis is begun at creatinine clearance less than 15ml/min. As for old patients and malnutrient patients, they have less muscle mass, low serum creatinine level, which can not reflect the kidney function. Serum creatinine level and creatinine clearance are both considered. Aside from indexes for kidney function, whether dialysis should be started also depends on patients’ clinical symptoms like severe swelling, pulmonary edema, uncontrollable electrolyte disorder, imbalance of acid-base, severe hypertension, heart dysfunction and pericarditis. In this condition, dialysis is required earlier.

Of course, some patients may object dialysis. For those who do not like dialysis, we recommend Chinese medicine treatments including Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Medicated Foot Bath, Moxibustion Therapy, Medicinal Soup, Mai Kang Mixture and Steaming Therapy, etc. These therapies can repair injured kidney tissues and improve renal function so as to help you avoid dialysis. But patients need to come to China for treatment. If you have any question, you can email tsthospital@hotmail.com or consult our online doctor directly.
