Kidneys are some of the most important organs in the human body. They function like filters, removing unwanted chemicals and other substances. Furthermore, they control water, mineral and acid/alkali balance, and are responsible for the production of important hormones.
There are many factors that can cause kidney problems, including diabetes, hypertension, kidney stones, chronic kidney infections, genetic diseases, and certain medications and chemicals. Patients suffering from kidney disorders may have symptoms such as swelling due to water retention, reduced amount and frequency of urination, cloudy urine, frequent urination at night, back pain radiating to the sides, loss of appetite, nausea, and vomiting.
Due to an increasing number of patients with kidney disorders in Thailand, Bangkok Hospital Pattaya combines leading specialists with the most advanced technologies and procedures to treat all types of kidney disease, including hemodialysis. As well as nephrologists in the Hemodialysis Department, there are also nurse specialists on stand-by 24 hours.
Chronic Renal Failure: patients with chronic renal failure will have a severe decrease in kidney function averaging 4-10% per year.
Chronic Renal Failure Patients whose kidney function is less than 10% of normal (demonstrated by Kidney Function Test: BUN and Creatinine) cannot keep going on medication only, and other renal therapies (hemodialysis, renal transplant, peritoneal dialysis) must also be used.
Hemodialysis is a method for removing waste products such as creatinine and urea, as well as excess fluid from the blood when the kidneys are in failure.
