How to Control Mental Disbalance after Long-Term Dialysis

How to Control Mental Disbalance after Long-Term DialysisBecause dialysis is unable to be as efficient as healthy kidneys, it is more likely to cause some side effects as time goes on. Mental disbalance may be one side effect that is attributed to kidney dialysis in several aspects.

1. Malnutrition: To make kidney failure patients live easier with dialysis, they are always required to follow a restricted diet plan strictly. This can trigger patients to fall into malnutrition state easily. Without enough energy supplement, brain cell may not work normally.

2. Buildup of moderate or larger molecular toxins: Dialysis, both hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis, is able to remove these types of toxin. As a result, these substances may damage various cells or nerves through blood circulation.

3. Renal anemia: Diseased kidneys are unable to produce enough EPO, so the body can’t make red blood cells normally. Then, renal anemia occurs easily. In this condition, brain cell will fall into ischemia and anoxia condition and work abnormally.

To improve dialysis patients’ life quality and manage their mental disbalance, the following treatment options are needed.

To overcome malnutrition, a healthy diet plan is needed. Make sure they can take in correct amount of protein, iron, sodium, potassium and phosphorus. If you are the patient and can’t determine the amount, you can ask the doctor online.

Then, patients should take some medications if necessary. For example, iron supplement, folic acid and EPO injection, can help prompt the body to produce more red blood cells, so as to provide more nutritions and oxygen for brain cells.

The last treatment is to remove moderate and large molecular toxins. CRRT, Plasma Exchange, Clear Blood Pollution Therapy, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy and some other therapies can help achieve this goal. Treatment selection should depend on patients’ illness condition. To know more about these treatment options, you can contact kidney experts in Kidney Service China through emailing to
