Lithium Haemodialysis Side Effects

Lithium Haemodialysis Side Effect Reports


The following Lithium Haemodialysis side effect reports were submitted by healthcare professionals and consumers.

This information will help you understand how side effects, such as Haemodialysis, can occur, and what you can do about them.

A side effect could appear soon after you start Lithium or it might take time to develop.

Lithium Haemodialysis Causes and Reviews


When your kidneys are healthy, they clean your blood. They also make hormones that keep your bones strong and your blood healthy. When your kidneys fail, you need treatment to replace the work your kidneys used to do. Unless you have a kidney transplant, you will need a treatment called dialysis.

There are two main types of dialysis. Both types filter your blood to rid your body of harmful wastes, extra salt, and water.

  • Hemodialysis uses a machine. It is sometimes called an artificial kidney. You usually go to a special clinic for treatments several times a week.
  • Peritoneal dialysis uses the lining of your abdomen, called the peritoneal membrane, to filter your blood.
