How To Control Breathlessness of Dialysis At Home

My wife suffers from breathlessness at night when lying flat. It is usually worse just after her hemodialysis. Does anyone else experience this?

Have you had your heart checked out? A patient has been on hemodialysis for 6 years, and experienced breathlessness. Have just had his heart checked out and have to have 4 valves replaced. Totally unexpected. So your wife also needs to check her heart. Another cause of breathlessness in kidney patients is fluid balance. As well as assessing clearances of waste products, it is also important to think about fluid balance. If the body is overloaded with fluid, this can cause high blood pressure, breathlessness as well as strain on the heart. As for hemodialysis, you need a longer time per session as removal of fluid over too short time can make you feel ill as well as strain on the heart.

The following are some tips for relieving breathlessness of dialysis at home.

1. Sleep in a chair

Sleep a recliner chair to help you sleep in a more upright position.

2. Relax on a pillow

Lean forward on a table with an arm crossed over a pillow to allow breathing muscles to relax.

3. Relax yourself

Listen to a relaxation recording or learn other ways to relax. This can help you breathe more easily.

4. Improve your renal function

We recommend Chinese medicine treatments including Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Medicated Foot Bath, Medicinal Soup, Mai Kang Mixture, Moxibustion Therapy and Steaming Therapy, etc. They can purify your blood and then repair injured kidney tissues through dilating blood vessels, improving blood circulation, preventing inflammation and coagulation, degrading extracellular matrix, providing nutrients and removing blood stasis. In this way, renal function can be improved gradually. When your renal function is improved, your heart will not be affected and fluid balance will be regulated. Breathlessness and other symptoms like swelling, nausea, vomiting, poor appetite and muscle cramps, etc can disappear naturally. However, Chinese medicine treatments are only available in China. You have to come to China for treatment. Consult us for details.
