Can Dialysis Cause HiccupIn daily life, many factors may cause a hiccup and usually it is a short-term discomfort feeling. However, if you are on dialysis, you should be very cautious, because dialysis may be the cause. In that case, some special treatments are required.

What causes a hiccup?

►Common factors

Irritation of the diaphragm causes a hiccup, which is usually due to swallowed air, eating too much, alcohol and carbonated beverages, sudden temperature changes, excitement or emotional stress. Those are the triggers for short-term hiccups. However, if a hiccup lasts more than 48 hours, it can be a sign of a more serious problem. This needs consultation with your doctor.

Dialysis

1. Infection

Infection easily occurs during dialysis. If not treated timely, it may affect other organs. Gastrointestinal tract is usually infected and many symptoms are present, such as poor appetite, nausea, diarrhea and hiccup.

2. Electrolyte imbalance

For patients on dialysis, they have lost most of the kidney function. As a result, many toxins and wastes accumulate in the body, and the kidneys fail to keep the electrolyte balance. In that case, if the patients have an inadequate dialysis, they are more likely to get a hiccup. Generally, the hiccup caused by dialysis is continuous. Some patients may have experienced a hiccup for months.

Treatment

1. Medicines: Hiccups is not a disease but a symptom. Treatment includes specialized medications such as baclofen.

2. Drinking lots of water at a time

3. Massage

4. Acupuncture

However, those treatments can relieve hiccup temporarily. In order to solve the problem from the root, you must improve your kidney function. Dialysis cannot protect and repair kidney function, while Micro-Chinese Osmotherapy can achieve the goal. The micronized Chinese medicine can dilate the blood vessels, supplying oxygen and nutritions for the blood circulation. Therefore, damaged renal function can recover. Kidneys can discharge wastes and toxins fluently as well as keep electrolyte balance. You can contact our online experts for more detailed information.
