Dialysis is the commonly used method for Kidney Failure patients to remove the wastes in the blood. Even though it is helpful for prolong the patient’s lifespan, it can lead to many side effects. What does low white blood cells mean during or after dialysis?
Definition of low white blood cells
A low white blood cell count, leukopenia, means disease-fighting cells have decreased circulation in your blood. Low white blood cells counts in adults is generally defined as fewer than 3,500 withe blood cells per microliter of blood; in children,it varies with age and gender.
Causes of low white blood cells in dialysis
This problem is more likely caused by anemia and infection during dialysis. Infection can cause low white blood cells counts by overwhelming or using up white blood cells are made. Viral and parasitic infection can specifically lower white blood cells in the blood.
Management of low white blood cells in dialysis
Treatment should not be given unless the real cause is confirmed. Consult you doctor to take a check, and he or she can give you right suggestions. What I want to say is that, since dialysis will bring some side effects, patients should find a new way to deal with kidney disease. The following is a brief introduction of our new treatment.

New treatment for Kidney Failure patients
The new treatment is called “Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy”, and has been used for almost 30 years in our hospital, Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital. It is an external application innovated from hundreds of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). The effective ingredients can permeate into kidney lesions with osmotic device, and can expand blood vessels, reduce inflammation and degrade extracellular matrixes, thus promoting Qi and activate blood circulation. Therefore, damaged renal tissues can be repaired and kidney function can be improved. As long as your kidneys can function adequately, all the symptoms will disappear gradually, and you can reduce or even avoid dialysis.
