Appetite Loss in Kidney Failure after Dialysis

Provided by Expert Zhang Youkang on 2014-03-13 07:55

When kidney failure occurs, dialysis is the commonly prescribed treatment. While it can keep the patients alive, the patients still often experience many adverse effects. Appetite loss is commonly seen in kidney failure after dialysis.

Appetite loss in kidney failure may be attributed to several reasons.

Firstly, high levels of waste products and toxins build up in blood. If the concentration of urea nitrogen is high, it will be decomposed into ammonia. Ammonia may irritate gastrointestinal tract, leading to appetite loss. In addition, if there is ammonia in mouth, the foods will taste very bad. Secondly, extreme fatigue is a common complaint for kidney failure patients on dialysis. Fatigue can be caused by anemia, frequent dialysis, depression and so forth.

Thirdly, as fluid can not be removed from body completely, high buildup of fluid in body can cause abdominal floating. The kidney failure patients on dialysis often become full very fast.

If the patients have appetite loss, it can reduce the intake of nutrients and affect the curative effect of Dialysis treatment.

Secondly, eat your biggest meal at the time of day that you have the most energy. Thirdly, have adequate protein intake and eat high-protein foods first.
