Is Swelling in Legs A Side Effect of Dialysis

Indeed, it can help patients prolong life to some extent, but meanwhile, it also can bring side effects for patients. Well then, is swelling in legs a side effect of the treatment?

How does dialysis cause swollen legs?

It is well known that the healthy kidneys are in charge of removing the extra wastes and toxins as well as extra fluid from our body, however, when kidneys are damaged, they cannot function properly and they are also unable to remove extra fluid adequately as before. And dialysis just replaces some functions but fails to repair kidney damage and enhance the kidney cells’ self-handling ability. As a result, more and more fluid will accumulate in the body between dialysis treatment. Due to gravity, the swelling usually occurs in legs, ankles or feet or other tissues. Long-term fluid deposition also can trigger more serious conditions. If left untreated, the fluids may congest heart, leading to congestive heart failure; it also can cause pulmonary edema, bring more health problems like shortness of breath, long-deep breath.

The treatment should focus on repairing kidney damage and improving renal function from the root. Then, how? In Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital, we do use natural treatments from Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) like Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy. On the one hand, the active ingredients of the medicines can permeate into kidney lesions directly; on the other hand, the treatment can help improve the kidneys cells’ self-handling ability.
