What Causes Hiccups after DialysisAs one kidney replacement therapy, dialysis can help maintain patients’ basic life but may also cause some side effects simultaneously. Hiccups affects quite a number of dialysis patients, even though it isn’t as common as low blood pressure, muscle cramps and skin itching. Hiccups isn’t a life-threatening problem, but it is indeed quite annoying.

What causes hiccups after dialysis?

Adequate dialysis is able to help diseased kidneys to filter out extra fluid and small molecular metabolic wastes, but it fails to play other kidney functions. For example, it is unable to keep the balance of electrolyte, regulate blood pressure and eliminate moderate and large molecular substances. Finally, hiccups occurs easily because of limited dialysis functions. That’s to say, hiccups is caused by electrolyte imbalance and build up of waste products and toxins.

Based on the causes, we recommend some natural treatments to ease this problem.

- Take deep breath for several times

- Stretch your tongue with a clean piece of cloth

- Hold your breath directly for 30~45 seconds

- Massage as doctor online guides

These methods can help alleviate hiccups for dialysis patients quickly and naturally, but it is unable to manage it from the root. To get rid of this problem, normalizing electrolyte balance and removing waste products and toxins are needed. In this light, we recommend Hot Compress Therapy.

This therapy makes micronized Chinese medicines work on kidney area directly, so the effective ingredients of these medicines can permeate into kidney lesions and play their function. Through increasing the blood flow into kidneys and prompting the repair of damaged kidney cells, this therapy can help improve kidney function and reduce the frequency of dialysis, thus easing side effects of dialysis.
