Fluid on Lungs for Dialysis Patients

Fluid on Lungs for Dialysis PatientsThe goal of fluid intake is to make dialysis patients comfortable. If drinking water incorrectly, fluid retention or even fluid on lungs may happen easily. Then, patients will present a series of symptoms and problems. In this case, do you know how to deal with fluid retention in lungs for dialysis patients?

Making clear the causes should be the first step

Dialysis patients are always required to control their dry weight strictly by managing the fluid intake. However, two conditions can cause fluid imbalance for dialysis patients. One is extra fluid intake, and the other is inadequate dialysis treatment. Fluid on lungs is a severe sign of these underlying conditions.

Dialysis patients are usually at a high risk of lung edema. With this problem, they will present the following symptoms:

- Cough

- Chest congestion

How to deal with fluid retention on lungs for dialysis patients?

According to the causes, we give out the following suggestions.

1. Limit the fluid intake: The goal of fluid intake for dialysis patients is to maintain their dry weight and make them comfortable. Besides, pay attention to the underlying fluid intake.

2. Choose alternative dialysis treatments: CRRT, immune adsorption, plasma exchange and hemofiltration are more effective than dialysis to cleanse the blood and maintain the internal environment.

3. Improve kidney function: The beginning of dialysis is usually attributed to low kidney function. Therefore, as long as kidney function increases, patients can get rid of dialysis successfully. If you want to achieve this goal, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy and Immunotherapy may worth a try.

According to your illness condition, you can determine which therapy is suitable for you with the online doctor’s guidance.
