Dialysis is helpful for prolonging Kidney Failure patient’s lifespan. However, this process are long and maybe painful. If you also experience sore ankle during dialysis, you can find some information about treatment in this article.
What are the causes and treatment of sore ankle in dialysis
● Blood toxins. Dialysis cannot remove all toxins and wastes in the blood. These useless and harmful substances will deposit in the extremities, resulting in sore ankles.
Treatment: In that case, your health-care provide should guarantee enough blood volume for filtration and frequency of dialysis. If the patient’s blood sugar level is not so high, he or she can be given chocolate for calories meets.
● Shortage of oxygen. When patients are on dialysis, oxygen is not enough. The ankle part is far from the heart so it lacks of oxygen supply. Due to shortage of oxygen, anoxic reaction of sugar occurs, producing lots of lactic acid. As a result, dialysis patients sometimes feel sore legs or ankles.
Treatment: Since it is a normal reaction during dialysis, patients have to bear it. The only way to help them is to reduce dialysis frequency by improving renal function.
How to improve kidney function?
As long as patients can still urinate, they have remaining kidney function. We give patients Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). The main effect of TCM is to purify the blood by expanding blood vessels, fighting against inflammation and degrade extracellular matrixes. Then, kidneys can get enough oxygen and blood volume to function adequately.
