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
Yes: Vertigo is any perception of movement, either of you or the environment moving. Acutely it is constant but worse with movement. Disequilibrium is imbalance during movement which has many causes such as numb feet, inner ear weakness, central cerebellar dysfunction, severe neck problems, medications or visual problems. It is especially bad if there is more than one of these problems present. ...Read more
Slow and steady: disequilibrium syndrome after dialysis is usually due to "too effective" dialysis. To prevent similar reactions in future treatments ask your dialysis doctors to make adjustments such as slow the blood flow rate, decrease the amount of fluid removed and avoid excessive electrolyte correction or changes. Also treat the symptoms you currently have with appropriate medications. ...Read more

Can inflamed sinuses cause pressure on the ears causing disequilibrium? I had off balance but after antibiotic for sinuses the symptoms were better.
Can eustachian tubes cause chronic disequilibrium? If so, can this affect vision? I have allergies, ears feel blocked when swallowing, vng abnormal
Highly unlikely: There has to be major pressure fluctuations such as diving for eustachian dysfunction (etd) to cause imbalance. Chronic disequilibrium is present during movement when there is vestibular weakness as identified on the vng. Vision is used to compensate but shouldn't change. Ear fullness can be from etd, méni?re's, tmj, hydrops, reflux. Balance retraining helps when one ear has balance weakness. ...Read more

Disequilibrium x1 week - only sometimes when walking. Feel off balance. Normal MRI of brain 6 months ago. So scared this is a brain tumor? 27/F.
Consider other cause: Since you had an MRI of the brain 6 months ago, and it was normal, you should not think of brain tumor as the cause here. Other causes are more likely and more common. These could be medicine side effects, changes in the sensation of the feet, changes in the inner ear sensation of movement, or changes with your strength. Hope that helps! ...Read more
