Dialysis: Live A Happy And Healthy Life

Dialysis: Live A Happy And Healthy Life

Understandably, people experience high stress when they need to start dialysis. Some may become quiet and depressed because they are not ready for the idea that they need to rely on dialysis for a long time, and those negative thoughts and emotion can lower their quality of life. The truth is people on dialysis can improve their physical strength and mood through eating right and exercising.


About Diet

People on dialysis should eat high-quality protein for muscle building and strengthening the immune system. High-quality protein comes from eggs, meat, fish, etc. Take notes on how much fluid is safe to consume per day. Water, tea, coffee, and any food that is in liquid form under room temperature should be counted as fluid. Avoid food that is high in sodium, potassium, and phosphorous. These are only some examples of basic food rules. Food choices and portion sizes vary among individuals. Please consult with a dietitian for more personalized advice.


About Exercise

For a long time, people on dialysis have been discouraged from exercising. In fact, exercise plays a role in maintaining their quality of life. Core strengthening exercises are especially beneficial as weak core muscles put extra strain on their lumbar spine. Walking, cycling, and swimming are recommended. Training doesn't need to be vigorous. Regular exercise for 20-30 mins a few times a week is likely to improve people's mental and physical health on dialysis. Work under the supervision of an exercise professional if needed.

How long does it take to see results? Should I stop taking it after a while? Are there any side effects?

DTS is scientifically proven to be beneficial to kidney function and has a positive effect on supporting the eGFR level. It is suitable for people to use as kidney support. Some may wonder, how about individuals without any kidney issues? Is DTS good for them too?   Absolutely yes! As “prevention is better than cure” is one of the basic modern healthcare strategies, the best time to take DTS is right before any kidney and liver problems show up. The herbal
Using creatinine as an indication of kidney function level is common, but just this number alone is not the optimal way to monitor kidney health nor to detect early kidney problems. According to professional recommendations, using an eGFR level is a more accurate indication of kidney health.   Creatinine is a by-product generated from protein metabolism. Therefore, muscle mass and diet can affect creatinine generation. For example, a muscular person or a person who cr
If the urine shows pink, red, or even brownish-red color instead of pale yellow, the first thing is to recall is the discolored urine caused by red pigments from medications or food like beetroots and red dragon fruit. If not, maybe it’s time to think about the possibility of blood present in the urine.   Blood in the urine is just a symptom, and sometimes it is not possible to see blood in the urine with naked eyes. A lab test is required to check for red blood
