Indications of Dialysis

Dialysis is used for some medical conditions, such as Kidney Failure or Chronic Kidney Disease. Whether you need dialysis or not, it depends on your own conditions. Read on and find indications for dialysis.

First all of all, we are glad to share the indications of Kidney Disease conditions.

Kidneys are two bean-shaped organs to excrete waste products, control total body water and aspects of acid base balance. When kidneys are failed, the excessive water and toxins will build up in the body, causing various discomforts, such as fatigue, anemia, high blood pressure etc.

if you have one of the following symptoms of Kidney Failure, you may be suggested to use dialysis:

- Hyperkalemia

- Metabolic Acidosis

- Fluid overload

- Uremia

- Severe hypertension

- Bleeding diathesis attributable to uremia

- Pericarditis

- Progressive uremic encephalopathy or neuropathy such as confusion, asterixis, myoclonus, wrist or foot drop, seizures

- Accelerated hypertension poorly responsive to antihypertensives

- Blood urea nitrogen (BUN) > 70 – 100 mg/dl

- Nausea, vomiting, poor appetite, gastritis with hemorrhage

- Severe metabolic acidosis

- Lethargy, malaise, somnolence, stupor, coma, delirium, asterixis, tremor, seizures,

- Pericarditis (risk of hemorrhage or tamponade)

In most conditions, you are suggested to take Dialysis, when your kidney function is less than 15%. However, if you have one of the severe conditions mentioned above, you may be suggested take the treatment, when your kidney function is higher than 15.
