Chennai: The latest dialysis technology — Hemodiafilteration — was inaugurated at SIMS hospital on the occasion of World Kidney Day on Thursday. Gradually replacing the regular Hemodialysis, it aids the ailing end stage kidney patients to have a better lifestyle while combating the disease.

“Haemodiafilteration is effective to remove high molecular toxins like beta 2 micro globuli. Phenol, cresol through diffusion that normal dialysis cannot achieve as those were capable of removing low molecular toxins like sodium and potassium. This latest dialysis costs more than the existing one but will drastically reduce the risk of cardio vascular disease, hypertension and cramps of a kidney patient,” said Dr. Ram Prabahar of SIMS Hospital.

 

“25 liters of water from the patient’s body will be removed and restored by fresh fluids that are prepared simultaneously. Hence one might feel brisk instead of fatigue and tiredness, which the dialysis usually causes,” he added. Gnani Sankaran, a renowned Tamil writer and journalist inaugurated the facility with Latha A Kumaraswami, from TANKER Foundation.  Gnani, who is undergoing dialysis at the hospital, conveyed his eagerness to take the new haemodiafilteration. “Patients really need patience. This technological advancement in the medical field serves as a boon for the patients,” he said.

 

Rendering advice to the public, Latha said, “Obesity is the main cause for renal disease. Becoming a prey to sedentary lifestyle one becomes a couch potato and invites many diseases. Resort to yoga, exercises and other activities to avoid new health issues and cure the existing ones.”
