What are the differences between hemodialysis and kidney transplantation in daily life? Hemodialysis:2017-10-11 16:35
In the treatment, 2-3 times a week to the hospital for 4-5 hours of hemodialysis treatment, the time is subject to absolute restrictions. Diet must be more stringent restrictions on water and salt intake, but also restrictions on potassium, phosphorus and purine containing substances intake. In the activity ability, due to anemia and osteoporosis, kidney bone disease and other reasons, physical strength is poor, prone to fracture, so that activities are obviously limited. Because of the high rate of vision loss or blindness in hemodialysis patients, this obviously affects the self-care ability of the patients. Only 50% of the long-term hemodialysis patients returned to work and less than 40% had normal human functioning.
After the rehabilitation of renal transplant recipients, the doctor will be able to live normally and regularly, except for regular review at the hospital. After kidney transplantation, diet is basically the same as normal people, without strict restrictions, but should also be restrained, so as not to increase weight, causing hyperlipidemia. After successful renal transplantation, 80% of the population returned to normal work, and more than 70% returned to sexual function. After renal transplantation, self management should be carried out to detect the rejection and side effects of the drug. Kidney transplant recipients also have the potential for osteonecrosis and cataracts due to side effects of the drug, but this can be prevented or operated on.
