Having uremia means severe damage to the kidneys, and there is no way to recover. You can only rely on dialysis or kidney transplant to continue living. Pre-uremia symptoms are not obvious, so people feel the dialysis must find a sense of despair, are lost, afraid, and even refused to treat.
The worst result of kidney disease is the development of uremia, which is the most worried about most patients with kidney disease. In fact, not so pessimistic, even if there is no chance of kidney transplant, hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis treatment, uremic patients still have the opportunity to live well.
Peritoneal dialysis. Using the body's own peritoneum as a dialysis membrane to replace the blood within the blood vessels, remove the body of waste retention and excess water, while dialysate to supplement the body needs substances. Peritoneal dialysis on the removal of water and toxins more stable, do not rely on the machine, the operation is more convenient and can better protect the residual renal function, the need for multiple operations in a day, with the risk of infection. Usually there is such a situation will give priority to peritoneal dialysis: older, poor cardiovascular system function, severe bleeding tendency, more urine.

Peritoneal dialysis has many advantages, but not all patients can do peritoneal dialysis. Before choosing the dialysis method, the doctor assesses the condition of the patient and does not qualify for peritoneal dialysis in the following cases: mentally ill patients, those who can not take care of themselves and who have no personal care. Patients who have had major abdominal surgery. Patients with emphysema, asthma, tuberculosis. Surgery can not be repaired in patients with abdominal hernia. Abdominal cancer patients.
Hemodialysis. Through the semi-permeable membrane of blood waste and excess water removed to achieve the purpose of purifying blood, and then purified blood back to lose. Including routine hemodialysis, hemofiltration and hemodiafiltration three methods, select 2-3 times a week can be intermittent removal of body waste and water, anemia is more serious, the diet more stringent restrictions. Hemodialysis can reduce the symptoms of patients and prolong life.
