How Much Does Dialysis Cost

How Much Does Dialysis CostDialysis is one common treatment option for patients with end stage renal disease, and it is one expensive therapy for most patients. If you are experiencing end stage kidney failure, you must want to ask how much dialysis costs.

Dialysis and kidney failure

Doctors may recommend their kidney patients to consider dialysis when patients’ kidney function is 15% or less. According to patients’ illness condition, doctors will determine how many times their patients need to do dialysis every week or month. Dialysis can help diseased kidneys to filter blood and cleanse the internal environment.

The approximate cost of dialysis

As we all know, dialysis has two common types: hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis. According to the introduction of nephrologists in USA, the approximate cost of peritoneal dialysis is about $53,000 per year and hemodialysis is about $72,000 per year. In other countries, the cost of dialysis must be different, but it is still one expensive treatment option.

Fortunately, medicare and insurance in some countries pay a large portion or even 80 percent of the costs for dialysis treatment. This can reduce patients’ burden largely. However, regardless of dialysis cost, dialysis is still not an easy therapy for patients with end stage kidney disease, because of its side effects and complications. For example, low blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, muscle cramps, leg pain, sleep quality, sickness, etc, are common complications of dialysis.

Is dialysis a must for kidney failure patients?

Fortunately, the answer is no. If patients still have urine or certain kidney failure, they still have chance to avoid dialysis. Until now, Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is applied maturely to repair damaged kidney cells, normalize blood circulation and improve kidney patients’ overall health condition. Now, some kidney failure patients indeed get rid of dialysis successfully through this therapy. Hopefully, this therapy can also help you save the money used in dialysis.
