Consequences of skipping DIALYSIS

Posted On Oct 06, 2022 |

Dialysis is a life-saving procedure/treatment for ESRD patients. Their kidneys are unable to filter out the waste products from the body.

It is suggested by the nephrologist to take 2-3 regular dialysis in a week without skipping it to keep the patient stable (alive sometimes).

Skipping dialysis could be dangerous and life-threatening.

There are many misconceptions and habits acquired by the patients.

Patients think that "no weight gain means no need for dialysis"

It is the biggest misleading thought in the mind of some patients.

They don't bother about increasing values of serum creatinine, blood urea, sodium, phosphorus, and potassium.

Increased values of sodium and potassium could be very dangerous sometimes. It is resulting in breathlessness, heart attack, and even death in some cases.

Prolonged high values of phosphorus may lead to the weakening of bones and heart issues.
