Will Home Dialysis Cause Dizziness

Will Home Dialysis Cause DizzinessDialysis is one lifesaving therapy for kidney failure patients, and it has two common types: hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis. If patients choose to accept dialysis at home, we call it home dialysis. However, some patients on home dialysis complain dizziness or vertigo. Then, can home dialysis cause dizziness?

Peritoneal dialysis and dizziness

Peritoneal dialysis is one common method of home dialysis, and it has three types: CAPD, CCPD and NIPD. In most cases, peritoneal dialysis is done every day, so patients’ diet is less restricted than those on hemodialysis. In this case, can peritoneal dialysis cause dizziness?

Unfortunately, the answer is yes. For patients on peritoneal dialysis, infection, especially peritonitis, is the leading cause of dizziness. Besides, fatigue attributed to anemia or malnutrition may also be the reasons.

Hemodialysis and dizziness

Hemodialysis can also be done at home. Usually, hemodialysis at home is done three times one week. Different from peritoneal dialysis, hemodialysis’s side effect is low blood pressure which is the cause of dizziness. If patients drink too much fluid during dialysis session, low blood pressure occurs along with the elimination of too much fluid from blood. Additionally, renal anemia and bleeding tendency caused by the use of heparin may also cause dizziness or vertigo easily.

Now, we can know home dialysis does cause dizziness easily. If patients want to get rid of this discomfort, they should take methods to deal with the direct cause. For example, limit the fluid intake during dialysis session, make sure the dialyzate and catheter is clean, do EPO treatment if necessary, and so on. Check with your doctor or doctor online from Kidney Service China to detect the cause and choose correct treatment options.

Besides, if patients still have urine output, they can also take some kidney repairing therapies to improve their kidney function level and overall health condition. If you would like, you can learn whether you still have a chance to get rid of dialysis.
