Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com.


Kidney failure is required for dialysis if it reaches stage 5 or if there are signs as follows:


Metabolic acidosis: high levels of acid in the body, as a result of disruption of the body's metabolism


Intoxication: if there is a possibility of drug poisoning or other to damage the kidneys as a whole


High Ureum: Very high blood urea levels can also determine the need for dialysis


Hyperkalemia: high blood potassium levels


Uremic encephalopathy: abnormalities in the brain due to high levels of urea such as decreased consciousness and so on


Overload: if there is swelling in the whole body or in part or tightness and it is believed that the source is from kidney disorders


If the doctor has determined that the patient must undergo dialysis, the patient should do dialysis because the kidney function is unable to work and to process all the blood in and out must be dialysis. If you do not instruct your doctor to dialysis then the possibility of complaints and illness will get worse, can not be determined how long it will last because of many factors.


If you have started dialysis you should always do dialysis for life and not stop in the middle of the road because if the blood is not washed, will accumulate a lot of dirty blood in the body.


For more information about dialysis, you should immediately consult a specialist in internal medicine.


Prevention can be done:


1. Treat underlying diseases such as high blood pressure, diabetes, gout and so on.


2. Reducing consumption of foods high in salt, sugar and fat


3. Regular exercise 3 times per week for 30-50 minutes


So hopefully useful :)
