Sudden changes in your body’s water and chemical balance during treatment can cause additional problems such as:
- muscle cramps
- a sudden drop in blood pressure, called hypotension. Hypotension can make you feel weak, dizzy or sick to your stomach
Your doctor can change your dialysis solution to help avoid these problems. The longer and more frequent treatments of home hemodialysis are less likely to cause muscle cramps or rapid changes in blood pressure than standard in-center dialysis.
