What Happens To Your Body When Dialysis Is Stopped
Simple answer is that it is a medical technology used primarily to provide an artificial replacement for lost kidney function in people with renal failure. Hemodialysis remove wastes and excess water from the blood by circulating blood outside the body through an external filter, called a dialyzer. Blood and dialysate flow through in opposite directions and the ...Read more
2 dialysis done. Kidney stopped functioning. Createnine reduced to 12 frm 17 after first dialysis. Kidney size normal. Is there any chance of revival?
Recovery?: You best resource for the answer to your question is the nephrologist (n) taking care of you. The questions to ask your n are: do you have acute renal failure? Does your n expect your kidney function to return? If you had acute renal failure, due to drugs that affected the kidney or due to low bp, recovery may be possible. Your n can and should give more information about your prognosis. Good luck. ...Read more

My mother has an impaired kidney with creatinine between 4-5. Has developed severe body itching recently. Any help for itching? Not on dialysis yet
Itching and dialysis: Your mother needs to be seen by a nephrologist to see if she needs to be on dialysis. Itching is one of the indications to start dialysis. I would imagine that your mother is near 60. Have her doctor collect a 24 hour urine for creatinine clearance (cc). If the result is < 10 ml/min, she will need to start dialysis and that would stop her itching. Check her serum phosphorus and pth. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Hello I'm not quite sure what's going on withy aunt but I heard my dad say that her body rejected diaylis he was crying on the phone what does this me?
Dialysis cessation: There are two reasons why a patient would stop dialysis. The first is that the person had acute renal failure and recovered his renal function, ending his need for dialysis. If the person has end-stage-renal-disease and he stops dialysis, he will get progressivly weaker, may have nausea and vomiting and die of fluid overload or hyperkalemia. The time to death is variable. ...Read more
Dialysis risks: Dialysis is a high risk procedure that should not be done unless absolutely necessary. The risks do not increase of its not needed, but if there is no benefit they are senseless. Complications include blood loss, both rapid and slow, dangerous blood pressure drops, reactions to the fluid or membranes used, and increased risks of infection.While dialysis is generally safe, why risk it if no need? ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is there anything I should be doing right now to assist me in preparation for dialysis when the time comes? (the do's and don't s ). Thank you.
Yes: If you have renal insufficiency ("pre-dialysis" kidney disease) you should consider getting a fistula placed. Since you have some klidney function you are a better surgical candidate, will heal better, and can get a native vein fistula (the best kind). Don't wait until you start dialysis because you may need a catheter (which is not good). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
A year of dialysis, stopping for six weeks and then starting again...What happens? Is it painful to start again after six weeks worth of toxins?
Re-starting dialysis: I am not sure of the reasons for the discontinuance of your hemodialysis (h) sessions. It appears that you regained some of your renal function, which allowed you to come off dialysis and it appears that it went down making it necessary for you to restart. The dialysis procedure which removes toxins and fluid is not physically painful. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What would happen if i skipped a night session of pd dialysis? I'm currently doing 8 hours a night and need a break, not sure how safe it is thank you
Clean ; Squeeze: Dialysis is both about cleaning (dialysis) the blood of toxins and squeezing (ultra-filtering) excess fluid out. Both functions are done constantly in patients with normal function. Missing a session puts you 2 days between treatments and at risk for electrolyte and/or fluid retention problems. ...Read more
Bad things: If you miss your dialysis appointment, a whole slew of bad things can happen. As dialysis helps in maintaining the proper equilibrium of acids/bases, salts etc in your blood, missing your appointment can lead to an imbalance in your blood. This may lead to fainting, weakness, heart complications, and death! essentially, wherever blood may flow, problems can emerge from those organs. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
