Peritoneal dialysis is also a way to cleanse blood, but compared with hemodialysis, it is less efficient at removing wastes from the body. In peritoneal dialysis, a tube which is fixed in the stomach to connect inside the outside of the body. Presence of this tube presents a risk of peritonitis due to the potential to introduce bacterial to the abdomen. When we are affected by peritonitis, we are very likely to suffer from abdominal pain. You said you have stabbing pain in your stomach on the right side, so I wonder if your pain problem is due to peritonitis.

Peritonitis is the infection of the abdominal cavity, which is best treated through the direct infusion of antibiotics into the peritoneum with no advantage for other frequently used treatments such as routine peritoneal lavage or use of urokinase. Peritonitis is the most common side effect of peritoneal dialysis and besides stabbing pain in stomach, it can cause many other problems like nausea, diarrhea, fever, cloudy used dialysate fluid. You can figure out if your pain problem in stomach is due to peritonitis.

Lastly, peritoneal dialysis is just a way to cleanse blood, and it can not repair kidney damages. That is to say, peritoneal dialysis is not a real solution for kidney failure. Currently, there is no cure for chronic kidney disease, but it does not mean dialysis is a must. Peritoneal dialysis is required because it can clear toxins away from blood, so as long as we find an effective treatment to purify blood, peritoneal dialysis is not longer needed.

In Kidney Therapy China, peritoneal dialysis is also used in some cases of kidney failure, but before it is given, treatments like Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Immunotherapy and Blood Pollution Therapy are firstly applied to repair damaged kidney structure, so as to restore kidney function. Good news is some patients indeed avoid dialysis successfully with these alternative treatment.

We may have great treatment to help you get off dialysis and go back to normal life again.
