How to Prevent Skin Darkening After Dialysis

How to Prevent Skin Darkening After DialysisWhen kidney failure patients begin to undergo dialysis, they may find some unpleasant skin changes, and dark skin is just one of these problems. Is there any therapy to prevent skin darkening after dialysis?

Why do dialysis patients have dark skin?

The change of skin color is associated with urochrome, one pigment, which is normally excreted out of the body via kidneys. Dialysis is one therapy that can replace kidneys to eliminate small molecular substances including water, creatinine, urea, uric acid, and so on. However, it is unable to replace kidneys to eliminate urochromes. With the accumulation of urochromes, skin will become darker and darker.

How to stop skin from darkening after dialysis?

Darkened skin for dialysis patients is due to dialysis failing to removing moderate and large molecular substances. If patients want to ease their skin problem from the root, they should take some therapies to overcome this disadvantage of dialysis treatment. From this point, several treatments are great helpful.

1. Plasma Exchange: This blood purification method can exchange waste products and toxins in the blood with nutritions in dialysate, so it can not only cleanse patients' blood circulation but also add some nutritions into the blood circulation.

2. Immune Adsorption: When blood flows through the purifier, waste chemicals and immune complexes can be adsorbed. Compared with dialysis, immune adsorption focuses on removing moderate and large molecular substances effectively.

3. Clear Blood Pollution Therapy: As one combination of blood purification and Chinese medicine, this therapy focuses on both cleansing the blood and repairing damaged kidney cells. As long as kidneys recover to work to some extent and more waste products can be eliminated from the body, dark skin can be eased successfully.
