Question: My grand mum with age 80 having both the kidney failure 6 months back under dialysis. Now she has gastrointestinal bleeding for last one week. After all checkup no abnormality found in the gastrointestinal tract or any bleeding point in it. Kindly suggest.

Is Gastrointestinal Bleeding Related to Kidney FailureAnswer: Gastrointestinal bleeding is a known complication of Kidney Failure, or Renal Failure. However, its causes are still unclear. This problem may be caused by the waste accumulation on the gastrointestinal mucosa; others have suggested that uremia may affect platelet adhesiveness, which may explain the prolonged gastrointestinal bleeding seen in patients with Kidney Failure; In addition, the role of heparinization and the widespread use of antiplatelet agents in patients on dialysis have been implicated in the etiology of gastrointestinal bleeding.

All of the above explanations probably contribute in some way to the higher incidence of acute, chronic, upper, and lower gastrointestinal bleeding that is seen in patients with Kidney Failure compared with that seen in the general population.

Treatment for gastrointestinal bleeding should be based on the real causes. Therefore, consult your doctor to find the cause. I would like to recommend you to take Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). They can improve blood circulation and repair damaged renal tissues, so as to enhance kidney function. Then, more waste can be discharged effectively.
