Tips to Cope with Dialysis: Part 2

Posted by

Welcome back to our blog! In our last post, we were discussing different ways to cope with your diagnosis of needing dialysis treatment. Dialysis can seem scary, but with these tips, we can help you understand that your treatment is not the end, it is just the beginning. At Hemowear, our company is designed to help make your dialysis easier with comfortable and convertible clothing.

In this next post, we will be continuing to give you tips and tricks to help put a positive spin on your dialysis.

Appreciate Dialysis Time

While many dialysis patients look at their time spent on the dialysis machine as a chore, many embrace the time they get to themselves. Because you are hooked up to a machine and can’t really go anywhere, this is great time to take care of some things you have been needing to accomplish. Balancing your bills, responding to emails, reading a book, or catching up on your favorite shows are all things you will have time to complete during your dialysis treatment.

Sleep Well

One thing you should know about your dialysis treatments is that they may affect your sleeping cycle. You may start to experience difficulties falling and staying asleep. If you are attempting to stay positive and are doing your weekly exercise, it should help you be able to sleep at night with more ease. Getting the rest you need will increase your overall mood and your body will be better adjusted to the new treatment you are receiving.

Stick to a Healthy Diet

When you start dialysis, you get a nutritionist who can help you start a new diet. One of the biggest things to be aware of is limiting your fluid ingestion and to control your thirstiness. Avoiding foods high in potassium, phosphorus, and salt are also imperative for your new dialysis diet. Your nutritionist will help incorporate the foods you need but will keep your diet tasting delicious.

Hopefully, this blog series has helped you understand your dialysis more and how it will positively impact your life. Always stay comfortable in your dialysis treatments by shopping for the best clothing for dialysis. Our clothes were made with easy access to parts of the body that will receive treatment. Get yours today!
