Frequently Asked Questions about Hemodialysis

Frequently Asked Questions about HemodialysisWhen kidney failure patients begin to live with hemodialysis, they may be faced by a series of problems. Then, they may ask some questions about hemodialysis. Thereby, we would like to give the answer to some frequently asked questions about hemodialysis.

1. Why do uremia patients need to accept dialysis?

Various disorders such as chronic glomerulonephritis, diabetes, high blood pressure, Polycystic Kidney Disease, and so on may cause end stage renal disease. Then, kidney filtration function declines, causing many clinical manifestations like high blood pressure, edema, nausea and vomiting. Then, hemodialysis is needed to replace kidneys to work.

2. How long can patients live with hemodialysis?

This is one question commonly asked by hemodialysis patients. At present, there are patients that can live with dialysis for more than 30 years. In theory, hemodialysis is one good choice to prolong patients’ life expectancy for long time, if patients’ complications are managed very well. One doctor in dialysis center ever said: If God gives you 100 years’ lifespan, we don’t let you die at age 99.

3. How many times should patients get dialysis?

Generally, regular and adequate dialysis should be at least 3 times one week. If patients’ urine is enough and their health condition is controlled very well, their dialysis can be reduced to 2 times one week or 5 times two weeks.

4. Will patients’ urine become less and less with dialysis treatment?

Not always. If the condition is admitted, patients with enough urine don’t need to dehydrate or only dehydrate a little water during hemodialysis treatment. In this condition, patients’ urine won’t decline. However, with the progression of patients’ medical condition, their urine output may decline gradually. In this case, patients should consider to dehydrate extra fluid from the body.
