Why Do Dialysis Patients Develop Hyperkalemia

Why Do Dialysis Patients Develop HyperkalemiaSome dialysis patients have hyperkalemia-a higher than normal potassium level in the blood. As we know, dialysis is used to discharge excess potassium from the blood. Why potassium level is still high after dialysis?

Kidneys would normally remove excess potassium from the body, so anything affecting normal operation of the kidneys can lead to hyperkalemia. Potassium is very important for normal health like heart health, muscles and most organs. With diseased kidneys, excess potassium will build up in your body. As a result, high potassium occurs, also called hyperkalemia, and it can lead to serious complications that affect nerves and muscles, especially the heart.

When kidneys are unable to perform the function of eliminating potassium, dialysis is used to replace kidneys. It can remove some potassium from the blood. However, due to its limitation of dialysis, it cannot discharge potassium fully and completely. This is the reason why potassium level is still high after dialysis.

To lower high potassium from the root, you should repair damaged kidneys and improve kidney function. Nowadays a new treatment, called Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy can repair injured kidney tissues and enhance kidney function. This therapy is an external application. Two medicated bags are put on the patients’ back where the kidneys are. Patients just need to lie in bed to accept this therapy. It is very comfortable and safe. With the help of osmosis machine, the active ingredients can come to the damaged kidney tissues directly through your skin. The main ingredients of Chinese herbs have functions of dilating blood vessels, preventing inflammation and coagulation, degrading extracellular matrix and stopping renal fibrosis as well as easing renal ischemia and hypoxia state. In these ways, damaged kidneys can get a favorable environment to get recovered and kidney function will also be improved gradually.

If kidney function is improved gradually, its ability of removing excess potassium will be improved. Thus, high potassium can be lowered to some extent. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is more effective and popular than dialysis.
