    Can Someone Undergoing Dialysis Twice a Week Do YogaKeeping a strong body is a must for Kidney Failure patients who are undergoing dialysis. The key of question is that how to keep a healthy body during dialysis. In fact, yoga is a good choice to strengthen body’s immune system. Well then, can someone undergoing dialysis twice a week do yoga?

    To be frank, that needs to depend on your illness condition. Therefore, the answer is complex. For the question’s answer, the following content as for your reference. By the way, In Beijing Tongshantang Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine, we do not recommend dialysis for kidney failure patients as long as patients have urine output. In other words, dialysis is usually not recommended unless nearly all kidney function is lost.

    Dialysis patients are not suggested to do yoga if patients are in the following conditions:


    Fatigue is the common symptom for kidney failure patients after dialysis. During the dialysis, not only some part of wastes and toxins can be discharged out, but also some fresh blood can be lost to some extent. When the red blood cells lost during the dialysis, patients are more likely to suffer from anemia and fatigue. If patients do often weakness and fatigue, patients are do not suggest to do yoga.

    Hematuria (blood in urine)

    It is one common symptom of kidney failure. When patients have severe hematuria, they need to take more rest in the bed and avoid yoga.

    Polycystic Kidney Disease

    If you take dialysis due to polycystic kidney disease (PKD), it’s better to avoid yoga to protect cysts from rupture. Because some gestures of yoga like stoop, may oppress the cysts, resulting in rupture of cysts. Then, infections, blood urine or other organ damage may occur. All of them can worsen illness condition. but you may can do deep breathing yoga.

    On the contrary, if patients have a good physical status, patients still can do yoga to improve immunity and prevent cold and infection. If you want to get an individualized treatment, please mail us to or leave a message below.
