Nogawa Hospital

Specialized hospital for blood purification treatment for the prevention of arteriosclerosis

​◎Blood purification

Blood purification is mainly to remove LDL and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol in the blood to prevent and inhibit the occurrence of arteriosclerosis, especially for hyperlipidemia and arteriosclerosis.

Blood is composed of blood cells (white blood cells, red blood cells, platelets, etc.) and plasma (yellow liquid). Oil and protein are combined and float in the plasma, called lipoproteins.There are two main types of lipoproteins:

・LDL (Low-density lipoprotein), to transport cholesterol from the liver to body tissues (muscle, etc.).

・HDH (High-density lipoprotein) returns cholesterol from muscle etc. (tissues other than the liver) to the liver.

If the LDL low-density lipoprotein cholesterol in the blood increases, the excess low-density lipoprotein cholesterol will adhere to the blood vessel wall and become the cause of arteriosclerosis prevention.

Simply put, it refers to vascular aging.

As we grow older, the human body weakens, and blood vessels also age. Irregular diet, living habits, or bloodLDLMany reasons, such as bad cholesterol, neutral fat, high blood sugar, and high blood pressure, add various burdens to blood vessels unconsciously, and damage blood vessels without symptoms.

​The difference between artificial dialysis and blood purification

manual dialysis

It is necessary to receive regular treatment in order to maintain and replace the role of kidney function when the kidney function deteriorates. 2~3 times a week, and it takes 4~5 hours to receive a treatment.

When undergoing dialysis, it is necessary to expel unnecessary substances and water accumulated in the body for 2 to 3 days at once, and then replenish and exchange new necessary components. Because of the one-time sharp adjustment of the material composition in the body, there is a high possibility of symptoms such as nausea, dizziness, and blood pressure drop during dialysis. Generally, healthy people will not accept artificial dialysis. Manual dialysis uses only one filter membrane.


blood purification therapy

yesOn the basis of the application of dialysis technology, only unnecessary components are removed from the blood (only low-density lipoprotein cholesterol is removed), and compared with artificial dialysis that sharply adjusts multiple components in the body, it has very few side effects on the human body. Blood purification therapy uses two types of filter membranes. It takes about 3 hours to receive blood purification once.
