How to Ease Stomach Pain for Peritoneal Dialysis PatientsJust like hemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis is another kidney replacement therapy. Generally speaking, peritoneal dialysis does reduce dialysis side effects and complications, but some patients still experience some problems. Stomach pain, or abdominal pain, isn’t so common but appears in some patients on peritoneal dialysis.

What causes stomach pain for peritoneal dialysis patients?

Peritoneal dialysis has congenital limitations, because it uses patients’ peritoneum as semipermeable membrane. During peritoneal dialysis, contact infections, gastrointestinal tract inflammation, infections associated with catheter, etc, can cause peritonitis directly. Abdominal pain, which may be mild to severe, is just one sign of peritonitis.

The treatments should depend in the causes. Here, we would like to give some suggestions to deal with peritonitis.

1. Treatment of infection: Since peritonitis is one kind of infections, correct antibiotics are commonly needed to take for control this infection. As for which antibiotic is suitable, it should be determined by the severity and cause of peritonitis. Consult the doctor online to see which medicine is helpful for you.

2. Drink correct amount of pure water or cranberry juice: Pure water is considered as best cleaner for the body, while cranberry juice can help prevent and treat urinary tract infections.

3. Acupuncture: Acupuncture is one natural remedy that causes few side effects and can help improve patients’ immunity. Therefore, patients can fight against infections including peritoneum better.

4. Alternative treatments to peritoneal dialysis: If peritoneum is severe, patients should stop peritoneal dialysis immediately. Compared with this kind of dialysis, CRRT and hemoperfusion can maintain stable haemodynamics, protect kidney functioning tissues and reduce complications more effectively. You can choose one of these treatment to prevent peritonitis and control your stomach pain radically.
