What Kidneys Do

Our kidneys provide an important function as the waste processing center of our bodies. Healthy kidneys clean the blood by removing excess wastes. The loss of kidney function can lead to the build up of impurities in the blood stream. When this happens, it is necessary to seek treatment to replace the work of the failed kidneys. Dialysis or kidney transplant are the most common methods for treating renal failure.

End Stage Renal Disease (ERSD) – When Kidneys Fail

One kidney functioning at 20 percent can keep a person healthy. Many will begin to feel weak or tired and lose their appetite when the kidney’s function is below that level. When the kidney’s loose their ability to function, toxic wastes start to build up in the blood and fluids start to collecting congestion, swelling and high blood pressure. There are treatments available to help you stay healthy.

What Are My Treatment Options

There are several treatments available for ERSD. Options include Hemodialysis, kidney transplant and Continuous Ambulatory Peritoneal Dialysis (CAPD).

What Is Haemodialysis

Dialysis is the removal of body wastes and water from the blood. During hemodialysis, the waste and water removal process takes place inside of a machine. The blood is taken from the body and pumped into a dialysis machine. The machine cleans the blood and pumps it back into the body. In most cases, hemodialysis sessions are necessary three times per week with each session lasting three to five hours.

Health Risks Associated with Kidney Failure and Dialysis Treatment

Diabetes is the single most common cause of kidney failure. Research has found that uncontrolled high blood pressure and uncontrolled high levels of blood sugar can significantly increase the risk that a person with diabetes will progress to kidney failure.

Africare offers numerous programs to help people with diabetes better understand and manage their disease. Each class has been designed to meet the specific needs of a person diagnosed with or having a high risk for developing diabetes.

High Blood Pressure on Dialysis
High blood pressure is common in people who suffer from kidney failure and can increase the likelihood of a stroke or heart attack. Dialysis patients need to work especially hard at controlling high blood pressure. High blood pressure can be controlled by limiting fluid intake and following a low salt diet. Your doctor may also prescribe medication that can control your high blood pressure. It is important to take this medication exactly as directed.

Dialysis patients are much more likely to develop heart disease than the general population. You can prevent the onset of heart disease by controlling diabetes and high blood pressure. Follow a healthy lifestyle plan that includes eating well, regular exercise and staying tobacco free.
