What are some dialysis side effects?


Answer by  starmlw (960)

Most people report feeling tired after dialysis. Lightheadedness and low blood pressure are also common. Long term, people on dialysis have an increased risk of infection and heart disease. All of these are not really "side effects", they are just part of the disease processes.

Infection is a major side effect. Developing a hernia could be a result. Developing low blood pressure can be a result of dialysis. Good nutrition could be difficult as a result of loss of appetite.

You might experience head-aches, severe lower back pain, and in general an achy feeling and possibly a series of nausea. These types of health treatments are ambiguous at best, you should consult a physician before doing anything to "official" icy-hot pads are great, and fluids do as much as-the stereotype.

Some of the side effects of dialysis include nausea, vomiting, fever, chills, and low blood pressure. If too much fluid is removed or fluid is removed too quickly, people may also experience irregular or rapid heartbeats or syncope (passing out). Many people also experience fatigue, becoming very tired after a dialysis treatment.

The main side effect of dialysis is damage to veins during the treatments. The main problems you will have stem from the failure of your kidneys, the dialysis will help alleviate these issues. If you have to take a blood thinner, check with your pahrmacist to ensure it will not interact with another medication or other precautions for the medication.

Haemodialysis involves removal of fluid. So if excess fluid is removed side effects such as low blood pressure, fatigue, chest pain, leg cramps and nausea may be caused.
