Can CKD Be Reversed If Patient Is on Dialysis

Can CKD Be Reversed If Patient Is on DialysisDialysis is only needed when CKD is in end stage, say stage 5 here, because mildly damaged kidney is powerful enough to help us maintain the normal life activity. Well, is there a way to reverse CKD? Can CKD be reversed if patient is already on dialysis?

First of all, we need to know kidney is an internal organ which works through different renal tissues like glomerulus and renal tubule. These kidney tissues are composed of different kidney intrinsic cells like glomerular endothelial cell, glomerular epithelial cell and renal tubular epithelial cell which play different role while kidneys are working. These kidney cells are just like cells in our other body parts like hand. When they are damaged mildly, they can get recovery by themselves as they have certain self-healing ability. However, if they are severely injured, they will become necrotic if no help is given. In an affected kidney, there are totally three parts of kidney intrinsic cells: healthy one, injured one and necrotic one. Necrotic kidney cells are dead cells and they can not be repaired, but for injured kidney intrinsic cells, there is chance to get them repaired. Therefore, there is way to reverse CKD.

Well, can CKD be reversed if patient is on dialysis? Dialysis is only needed when kidney problem is in end stage and for dialysis patients, their kidneys have been severely damaged. Dialysis is the way to filter blood outside the body with a machine. This helps to cleanse blood, but as blood is purified outside the body, bloodstream in kidney reduces, which is bad for healthy kidney intrinsic cells because they can get necessary nutrients and oxygen while filtering blood. Without necessary nutrients and oxygen, kidney intrinsic cells become necrotic finally. Therefore, for CKD patients who have been on dialysis for many years which can be decided according to their urine output, they have less chance to get kidney problem reversed. However, for these who are newly on dialysis or still have good urine output, there is great chance for them to get their kidney problem reversed to a relatively mild stage. Therefore, if you are a dialysis patients and meanwhile still have good urine output, please take your last chance to better your kidney and get off dialysis.
