It’s dialysis, don’t be afraid!

Every time a patient hears that he is going to prepare for dialysis, he is very lost, scared and even refuses treatment. Today Dr. Clove will talk to you about dialysis.

Dialysis is a commonly used treatment method. Simply put, when the patient’s kidney can no longer work effectively, a method is needed to help us complete the function of removing toxic substances from the kidney, including two methods: hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis.

Question 1: Dialysis is needed, is it going to die?

Of course not!

The reason why we need dialysis is for a better life. With the development of medical technology, the survival time of our dialysis patients is getting longer and longer. Now there are many patients who have survived dialysis for more than 20 years.

Moreover, sometimes uremic patients do not die of renal failure, but are common diseases of other elderly people such as cardiovascular diseases and tumors.

Question 2: Is it impossible to work and live normally after dialysis?

Of course not!

Patients undergoing peritoneal dialysis can change fluid during the rest time of commuting and sleep at night, and can also change fluid during sleep through peritoneal dialysis.

Patients who choose hemodialysis can also undergo hemodialysis treatment between 6 pm and 10 pm, and are still competent for normal work during the day.

Question 3: Dialysis is needed, can’t you travel?

Of course not!

Hemodialysis patients can contact the local dialysis center before traveling, and then they can travel to China and even other parts of the world.

And peritoneal dialysis patients can also prepare peritoneal dialysis fluid and drive to the end of the world!

Finally, I would like to tell you that dialysis is only a lifestyle change. It takes up a small part of your time and helps you get a longer life, get along with your family and friends.

Therefore, dialysis is needed, don’t be afraid, what awaits you is a better life!
