Must Patient Accept Dialysis When He Is In Stage 5 CKD

Must Patient Accept Dialysis When He Is In Stage 5 CKDChronic kidney disease (CKD) is divided into five stages, and when patients are in the end stage of CKD, most of their doctors will recommend them to take dialysis. While, must patient with end stge CKD accept dialysis?

Why dialysis is recommended?

Our kidneys have the function of keeping our body’s internal balance, and when patient is in the end stage of CKD, his glomerular filtration membrane is lower than 15ml/min, so most metabolic wastes and toxins in his blood can not be filtrated by patient’s kidneys, and they will cause severe damage to patient’s health.

Besides, when patient is in the late stage of CKD, their kidney disease may cause them to have severe complications, like bone diseases, cardiovascular disease, etc, which are often caused by factors like the metabolic disorder of electrolytes, high level of toxins in body, etc. To solve these problems, patient will need to take dialysis to keep his internal body balance.

Must patients with stge 5 CKD accept dialysis?

In fact, whether patients with stage 5 CKD need dialysis depends on their own condition.

As we have said, if patient has severe complication in his body, he will need dialysis to correct his internal imbalance, so patient may need dialysis before his disease progresses into stage 5.

But for patient with stage 5 CKD, he may not have severe complication or symptom, and if his body can bear the accumulated toxins in his body, he may not need dialysis.

On the other hand, CKD progresses slowly, so even patient begins to have symptom in his body when he is in the stage 5, it is not easy for him to notice. And when patient find he has complication, that may already be very severe. And that is why patient will be recommended to accept dialysis when he begins to be in the end stage.

Thereby, patient with end stage do not have to accept dialysis when he is in the end stage, but it is better for him to take this treatment.
