Kidney disease patients, especially for those with kidney failure, they are more likely to experience gastrointestinal symptoms like nausea and vomiting. As these two discomforts will affect patients’ life quality largely, it is essential to know about the causes and treatments:
To be frank, nausea and vomiting in kidney disease can be caused by a variety of conditions.
1.Huge loss of protein In advanced stage of kidney disease, due to decline of kidney function, hypoproteinemia may occur. In this condition, swelling may spread to the gastrointestinal tract, which manifest as nausea and vomiting.
2.High levels of toxins In kidney failure, due to decreased excretion ability, more and more toxins including BUN, creatinine, uric acid, phenols, guanidines, etc will build up in the body. And the accumulation of toxins will stimulate the gastrointestinal tract.
3.Metabolic changes Due to metabolic changes, a substance named urea enzyme can decompose urine into ammonia and this substance can irritate the gastrointestinal tract largely.
What can I to relieve nausea and vomiting?
1.Mostly, doctors will prescribe patients with some drugs to relieve the discomforts. However, there can be strong drug reactions.
2.Under certain circumstances, dialysis may be recommend to discharge the wastes and toxins in the blood. And the efficacy can be obvious. Unfortunately, it is not a wise idea, as this alternative treatment can do nothing to improve renal function.
3.To relieve nausea and vomiting radically, the most important step is to improve kidney function. Here, a natural therapy called Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is highly recommended. It is an innovation of TCM, but applied externally. By promoting blood circulation, blocking inflammation, anti-coagulation, degrading extracellular matrixes as well as supplying nutrients for the injured kidneys, it can help restore kidney function eventually. Thereby, symptoms like nausea and vomiting will be alleviated from the underlying cause. For more info, you can email us or consult with our Online Doctor!
