Hemodialysis is a common method for ESRD (End Stage Renal Disease) patients. It is a much more intensive treatment than peritoneal dialysis. Body pain with hemodialysis are due to this fact.
Cause of body pain in hemodialysis patients
● Bone disease
The body pain is possibly bone pain, which is a common problem in Kidney Failure patients. Damaged kidneys cannot activate Vitamin D, and calcium in the blood reduces, resulting in bone disease. This condition is called “renal osteodystrophy”. This condition may cause bone pain.
● Dialysis amyloidosis
However, bone disease is not the only cause of body pain. This problem can also be caused by a condition called dialysis amyloidosis.
It can develop 10 years or so after the start of dialysis. It is caused by the build up of a protein called amyloid, which is not easily removed by dialysis. This substance deposit in joints all over the body, leading to body pain.
Management of body pain for hemodialysis patients
Since body pain is such a common symptom in hemodialysis patients, the way to get rid of this problem is to reduce dialysis. Is there any medicine or therapy that can reduce dialysis? Fortunately, the answer is yes. Here is a general brief introduction about our natural therapies. Any questions, please email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This therapy is an external application used on Shenshu area. The Chinese medicine bags are put under the patient’s kidney area. With osmotic device, the effective ingredients can permeate into kidney lesions directly. They can improve blood circulation and repair damaged renal tissues.
As the name implies, this therapy is to involve stem cells, which can differentiate into cells having certain function. Injected into Kidney Failure patients, the cells can turn into kidney function cells and blood cells to restore the remaining renal function.
