Hemodialysis for acute and chronic renal failure patients

Hemodialysis for acute and chronic renal failure patients treatment in Hebbal, Bangalore

Dialysis is a Renal failure treatment in Hebbal, Bangalore for people who have failing kidneys. When you have renal failure, your kidneys do not filter blood properly. As a result, wastes and poisons accumulate in the bloodstream. Dialysis replaces your kidneys by eliminating waste products and excess fluid from your blood.


Dialysis may be required for those who have kidney failure, often known as an end-stage renal disease (ESRD). Kidney disease can be caused by injuries and disorders such as high blood pressure, diabetes, and lupus.

Kidney disease progresses via five stages. Healthcare practitioners regard to stage 5 kidney disease as an end-stage renal disease (ESRD) or kidney failure. At this point, the kidneys are doing 10% to 15% of their typical function. To stay alive, you may require dialysis or a kidney transplant, and in many situations, people must undergo dialysis while waiting for a transplant.


Dialysis patients are encouraged to increase their protein consumption while limiting their potassium, phosphorus, sodium, and fluid intake. Patients with diabetes or other medical disorders may be subject to additional dietary restrictions. It is critical to consult with your nutritionist about your specific nutritional requirements.

The dialysis care team will monitor the treatment with monthly laboratory tests to ensure you receive the appropriate quantity of dialysis and meet your dietary goals.

Treatment Procedure

Hemodialysis access, also known as vascular access, is a method of reaching the blood for hemodialysis. The access lets blood flow through soft tubes to the dialysis machine, where it is cleaned by passing through a specific filter known as a dialyser. A small operation is used to insert access. As a hemodialysis patient, you have one of the following options,

  • Fistula: a connection between an artery and a vein in the arm

  • Graft: access is made by joining an artery and vein in the arm with a piece of soft tube.

  • Catheter: a soft tube inserted into a major vein, generally in the neck

The dialyser, or filter, is divided into two parts: one for your blood and one for a cleansing solution known as dialysate. A thin membrane separates these two components. Because blood cells, protein, and other vital substances are too large to travel through the barrier, they remain in your blood. Smaller waste items in the blood, such as urea, creatinine, potassium, and surplus fluid, are carried away by the membrane.


Some persons have low blood pressure during or immediately following hemodialysis. You may feel dizzy, queasy, or faint.

Other hemodialysis side effects include,

  • Back discomfort or chest pain

  • Headaches.

  • Skin itch.

  • Cramping of the muscles

  • Syndrome of restless legs.
