 How to Control Potassium Level of Dialysis Patients
Dialysis is a way to maintain life for kidney failure patients. But during long-term dialysis, some of you may have sudden numb fingers, mouth or lips, muscle weakness, slowed heart beat, bloated abdomen, etc. If so, go to see your doctor immediately and start urgent dialysis. Do you know why? If you can not control your blood potassium level well, it is likely for you to suffer from these symptoms or even death. Well then how to control potassium level of dialysis patients?

Why dialysis patients get high potassium level easily?

About 90% of potassium is passed out of body via kidneys, and 10% is passed out via colon and skin. When your kidneys fail to work, dialysis is a way to help you cleanse potassium. But dialysis can not work 24 hours like your own kidneys. During two dialysis intervals, if you do not control potassium intake, your potassium level will go up quickly ad cause a series of discomforts above.

What foods can elevate blood potassium level?

Fruits: Bananas, mango, durian, jujube, orange, watermelon, etc. Vegetables: tomatoes, potatoes, kelp, mushrooms, beans, wild vegetables, root vegetables, etc. Meat: goose and pig liver. Cereal: corn. Beverages: tea, coffee, Chinese medicine, etc.

If you eat the above foods regularly, please reduce their intake.

Treatment to help you control potassium level

Besides dialysis, you can try Toxin-Removing Treatment. It is a characteristic treatment of Beijing Tongshantang Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine, which can increase your urine output, improve your bowel movement and make you sweat so that more potassium can be taken away from body, and then you can have a good control of your blood potassium level. Toxin-Removing Treatment can also help improve blood circulation and increase blood flow into damaged kidneys so that enough essential elements such as oxygen, nutrients and active ingredients of medicine can be transported into damaged kidneys to speed up kidney recovery.
