Discover The New Alternative To Dialysis With Guaranteed Results.

Definition and Disadvantages of Dialysis.

Dialysis is a procedure that can help patients with end stage renal disease to increase quantity and quality of life. However, there are several inherent risks associated with dialysis.

Since there are many risk-free alternatives of dialysis. One of them is new treatment of kidney failure available at Dr. Vijay Raghavan Centre, Metabolic Chikitsa Sansthan, Patna.

What is Dialysis?

Typically, the kidneys are responsible for the removal of surplus fluid and for turning excess products into urine, which is then excreted. However, in those with impairments in kidney function, dialysis is often required. Dialysis is a medical procedure that assists in the functions usually carried out by the kidneys in those with poorly functioning kidneys, such as people with renal disease.

Without dialysis, those with kidney issues may experience a toxic build-up of fluid and waste bi-products that can have serious health implications, including death. Therefore, dialysis enables such individuals to have an improved quality of life.

But dialysis can not replace total function of kidneys. That is why it is better to improve kidney function by metabolic treatment than to rely on dialysis.

There are two main types of dialysis: peritoneal dialysis and hemodialysis. For most individuals requiring dialysis, they can decide which type of procedure they would prefer as they are both equally efficacious. However, both come with their own benefits and disadvantages that need to be considered by the patient.

Short Term Side Effects of Dialysis.

  • Low blood pressure
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Dry or itchy skin
  • Restless leg syndrome
  • Muscle cramping

Long-Term Effects of Dialysis

  • Heart disease
  • Bone disease
  • Amyloidosis
  • Nerve damage
  • Cause of death in dialysis are Heart attack, CHF/cardiomyopathy, Arrhythmias, cardiac arrest,  Access infection, Nonaccess infection death, Other dialysis death, Other access death, GI bleed, Cancer, Respiratory, cerebrovascular death etc.

No Dialysis is Better:

With each dialysis, some part of the kidney gets damaged. And gradually the kidney becomes completely damaged and then the process of dialysis has to be stopped. And this lead to death if immediate metabolic treatment is not started immediately.

Often kidney failure patients think that by getting a transplant they will lead a normal life, but this is not often the case. Kidney Transplant failure rate in USA — 7% failure within 1 year, 17% failure within 3 years, 46% failure within 10 years, 20% re-transplantation rate.
