Complications caused by dialysis such as a headache, weakness, high blood pressure will worsen both their body and spirit.

1. Firstly, let’s talk about the causes of a headache.

A headache is common for patients with dialysis, especially for hemodialysis. The probability of a headache for patients with dialysis is 70%. And headache caused by dialysis is divided into two types.

The second kind of condition has a 20% possibility of all the two types of a headache. It has the characters of happening after three or four hours of dialysis, and bilateral frontotemporal pain is normal symptom.

Other reasons for patients with dialysis include:

Glaucoma, a complication of dialysis;

Central venous stenosis, which has a 30% occurrence rates, can cause increased intracranial pressure, headache and vomiting.

2. Treatment for a headache caused by dialysis includes medication and dialysis adjusting.

Dialysis Duration Adjusting:

Adjusting the duration of hemodialysis. The duration of hemodialysis can be in 2-4 hours. The duration can be adjusted slowly in order to reduce the urine toxic nitrogen. The low-temperature dialysate is suggested. But the temperature change should be gentle, or it will cause patients’ uncomfortable. Sometimes the switch of carbonate and acetate can help to improve the headache of patients.

Medication Adjusting:

Conventional dose of Aspirin can be used in pain management. The key to using this kind of medication is early. Supplement of magnesium can reduce the headache caused by peritoneal dialysis.
