More Kidney Dialysis Is Better, Research Finds
Date:2/24/2012

od pressure and blood phosphorous levels. (Dialysis patients have difficulty maintaining proper phosphorous levels, putting them at risk of serious complications such as heart disease. Diet and medications help to control these levels.)
  • The last study reexamined the results of two previous studies. They looked at frequent (six times per week) treatments vs. conventional dialysis. The researchers concluded that more frequent dialysis treatments helped lower patients' blood phosphorus levels over 12 months. And, more frequent dialysis reduced their need for phosphorus-lowering medications, and might also allow people on dialysis to ease some of their dietary restrictions.
  • The bottom line, Provenzano said, is to "dialyze the maximum amount of time you possibly can, based on your lifestyle. Get your family actively involved in your care and, if you can, keep working. Quality of life is significantly improved if you keep working. Dialysis is not a reason to stop working or doing activities. Stay active. You'll feel better."
