Why Do Dialysis Patients Have Pain in Both Knees

Why Do Dialysis Patients Have Pain in Both KneesSome dialysis patients are tormented by severe knees that may even affect patients' walking ability. Finding out the underlying causes of knee pain can guide dialysis patients to choose effective treatments to manage this discomfort.

Dialysis can help replace damaged kidney cells to filter blood and regulate blood pressure. However, because it is unable to work as effectively as healthy kidneys, it will cause a lot of side effects and complications. Some of them just can cause pain in patients' both knees.

Long-term dialysis is more likely to induce calcium-phosphorus imbalance, while calcium and phosphorus balance in the blood is responsible for keeping bone health. If this balance is disturbed, bone in various regions and joint may be involved. In this condition, pain may appear in patients' knees.

Another cause is dialysis-related amyloidosis (DRA), which occurs when β2 microglobulin, a serum protein, accumulates in the blood. The onset of this problem is attributed to this protein unable to cross the dialysis filter. Neck, shoulders, knees, etc, are more likely to be affected by amyloidosis.

How to alleviate dialysis patients' knee pain? Since the buildup of β2 microglobulin and calcium-phosphorus imbalance is the direct cause, the treatment should begin from overcoming these dialysis side effects.

To maintain calcium-phosphorus balance, patients should limit phosphorus-containing foods such as sea foods and nuts. In the same time, they are suggested to consume more high-calcium foods. This can help reduce phosphorus level in the blood and increase calcium level, so as to maintain bone health.

As for the accumulation of β2 microglobulin, we would like to suggest Blood Purification and Clear Blood Pollution Therapy. Compared with dialysis, these therapies can cleanse the blood more thoroughly. What's more, the later therapy can also prompt the recovery of damaged kidney cells. As long as the polluted blood is cleansed, knee pain will be alleviated successfully.

If you have a similar problem, you can ask help from the online doctor to get suggestions in detail.
