Severe Hypotension and High Cholesterol for Hemodialysis Patients

Severe Hypotension and High Cholesterol for Hemodialysis PatientsHemodialysis is often used to help diseased kidneys to remove extra fluid and waste products. However, during hemodialysis treatment, it may cause some side effects. Among them, severe hypotension, or low blood pressure, is quite common. High cholesterol level isn’t as common as hypotension, but it does appear in some hemodialysis patients.

If you are tormented by hypotension and high cholesterol and want to know how to manage them immediately, you can ask the Doctor online directly through the dialog box in the lower right corner.

Today, we firstly talk about severe hypotention for hemodialysis patients. As we know, the basic kidney function is to make urine and remove extra fluid and waste products. When kidneys lose their ability to determine how much fluid stays in the body, hemodialysis is needed. However, if patients drink too much fluid during dialysis session or too much fluid is removed during one dialysis treatment, blood volume will reduce quickly, resulting in severe low blood pressure.

Then, we will introduce the cause of high cholesterol for hemodialysis patients. As introduced by nephrologist, elevated cholesterol is attributed with kidney problem instead of hemodialysis. When kidney disease aggravates into uremic stage, metabolic disorder of protein, carbohydrate, fat and vitamins occur easily, and high cholesterol level is just one form of fat metabolic disorder. Besides, unhealthy diet plan is one common cause of this problem.

How to manage severe hypotension and high cholesterol for patients on hemodialysis? According to the causes, patients can take the following managements.

- Determine their dry weight correctly

- Limit the fluid intake during dialysis sessions strictly

- Pay attention to the use of anti-hypertensive drugs

- Avoid foods rich in cholesterol

If patients want to get rid of these problems completely, accepting some alternative therapies to hemodialysis is also one good choice. At present, Blood Purification can help keep blood volume more stable than hemodialysis, while Clear Blood Pollution Therapy and Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can help rebuild kidney structure. If you are interested, you can learn more about these treatments from doctor online.
