Cramps after Dialysis: How to Treat It

2017-01-16 15:12

Some dialysis patients complain that they are suffering from cramps after dialysis, and it can more or less influence the quality of their life. 

What are the reasons of cramps after dialysis?

Muscle cramps of the hands, feet or legs is fairly common on dialysis. Though the cause of muscle cramps is unknown, three conditions that seem to increase cramping are: hypotension; the patient being below dry weight; use of low sodium dialysis solution.

Muscle cramps are more commonly associated with low blood pressure. It also can occur when you are below your dry weight. The severe muscle cramps experienced near the end of the dialysis treatment and persisting for a time after dialysis often is due to dehydration.

How to treat cramps after dialysis?

When you are cramping and have low blood pressure, the dialysis staff may give normal saline, which can increase the fluid in your body and muscle cramps may be relieved. In addition, hypertonic saline or glucose may be given. Heat and massage for the cramping muscle can ease the pain. For chronic leg cramps, they may prescribe Quinine, Carnitine or another medication. To avoid cramping, be sure to stick to your fluid and sodium restrictions every day.
