Doctor is suggesting that Dialysis be done to get rid of the edema. I need a second opinion?
Age :70 years Gender : Female. Medical Conditions: Asthma and Congestive Heart Failure. Has Pacemaker.
In October 2016 was prescribed Prednisone to treat asthma. The prednisone caused severe edema(swelling) all over body. Doctor is suggesting that Dialysis be done to get rid of the edema. I need a second opinion. Will Dialysis get rid of the edema?Please advise.
In my opinion if prednisone was the cause of edema then yes Dialysis Can be A perfect treatment for the edema
dialysis is the last option.
If this is a drug induced oedema,then stopping the drug and taking diuretics can help.
Only if this does not help,then you can go for dialysis.
Yes it can ,in my opinion stop the steroids first and try apple ..celery and diuretic drug ..improve potassium level by taking banana for example..then go to dialysis if the problem persists..
