His been receiving dialysis for month seems like his body is letting go he can't walk, bathroom. 2days ago his eyes rolled back and body shakingWhy?

Here are some...: Apparently the functional reserve of the patient you referred to is reaching his very marginal state. Therefore, minor change in fluid and electrolyte balance and body movement will alter how his muscles act, his circulation maintains, etc. More? Ask he treating doctors especially the nephrologist. ...Read more

Dialysis (Definition)

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

I'm on home dialysis & this afternoon I noticed that my right eye is all bloodshot, why is this & should I be worried? Thank You

I'm on home dialysis & this afternoon I noticed that my right eye is all bloodshot, why is this & should I be worried?  Thank You

Unrelated: This is most likely not related to the dialysis! However It is concerning if it represents a bacterial eye infection since the bacteria could infect your shunt. Careful handwashing is advised....Tell your renal Doctor about the eye.... ...Read more

Serious question. Patient has uti. On fluid restriction due to heart problems. Needs dialysis but can't yet. Today eyes yellow. What can be done?

Serious question. Patient has uti. On fluid restriction due to heart problems. Needs dialysis but can't yet. Today eyes yellow. What can be done?

Check liver: This sounds like a very serious problem. The yellow eyes suggests jaundice and liver dysfunction. In the setting of kidney and heart problems, too, i worry about multiple-system organ failure, a bad problem. All these issues relate. The patient needs volume status addressed, antibiotics and likely evaluation of organ function, quickly and closely. So sorry and good luck. ...Read more

Can Ccr be 9.7 ml/min if S.Creatinine is just 2.37 mg/dl? S. Cr is consistent for 3 yrs. Does that mean I need dialysis, or it may be lab error?

Can Ccr be 9.7 ml/min if S.Creatinine is just 2.37 mg/dl? S. Cr is consistent for 3 yrs. Does that mean I need dialysis, or it may be lab error?

Subscientific: This pathologist doesn't believe in the "estimated GFR's" from spot creatinines. The idea of dialyzing somebody with a creatinine 2.3 is bolt stupid. I'll bet your nephrologist -- if you've even been referred -- will tell you the same thing. Just watch your diabetes and your hypertension and hopefully we can keep this under control. ...Read more

Can my uncle who's in his 30's succeed the operation of a transplant kidney? He has CFR and his creatine is 8. Should he be on dialysis, or operation?

Can my uncle who's in his 30's succeed the operation of a transplant kidney? He has CFR and his creatine is 8. Should he be on dialysis, or operation?

Must be evaluated: Most patients in their 30's will qualify for a kidney transplant. However, they must be good surgical candidates, must accept the risks of transplant (the anti-rejection medications have important side effects), and must be good caretakers of the new organ (keep medical appointments, take their medications on time, etc). If these criteria are satisfied, transplant is a better option than dialysis. ...Read more

Access placement: If you decide to go on hemodialysis, your vascular access should be a arterio-venous fistula (avf). That is normally placed in the non-dominant arm. Another option is peritoneal dialysis (pd), where a catheter in placed in the peritoneal cavity so no arterial access is needed. See the image on the right. The catheter is not placed in any abdominal organs. Discuss pd with your nephrologist. ...Read more

How is dialysis performed?

Dialysis: Dialysis can be done through the blood (hemodialysis) or through the abdomen (peritoneal dialysis). Hemodialysis involves passing the blood across and filter to purify it / remove toxins and remove water. Peritoneal dialysis takes advantage of the membrane within the abdomen to act as a filter. In either case toxins are removed from the blood stream. ...Read more

How many forms of dialysis are there?

2 peritoneal & hemo: The 2 types of dialysis are hemodialysis and peritoneal. Both are effective but have pros and cons. Hemodialysis is generally done at a dialysis center three times a week and requires "access" into the blood stream, a fistula is preferred. Peritoneal dialysis is done at home through a catheter (tube) inserted into the abdominal cavity. You should discuss with your nephrologist what is best for you. ...Read more

My creati ine is 480 do I need dialysis?

Not clear: I'm not sure on the units in your value or if there is a decimal missing. A creatinine of 4.80 mg/dl is abnormal and requires investigation. A creatinine of 480 micromol/l is also elevated and requires evaluation. ...Read more
