Is Vomiting and Diarrhea Common after Dialysis

Provided by Expert Zhang Youkang on 2014-03-23 01:39

Dialysis is a life-saving method for people whose kidneys fail to function. Is vomiting and diarrhea common after dialysis?

Vomiting after dialysis

Vomiting after dialysis can be attributed to a variety of possible causes. As follows:

Low blood pressure is a common cause of vomiting after dialysis. Dialysis can remove the extra fluid from body to cause a decline in blood volume, thus leading to low blood pressure. In addition, if the patients take medications for high blood pressure before dialysis treatment, it may also reduce blood pressure to a low level. If blood pressure is too low, it may cause nausea and vomiting after dialysis.

High levels of waste products can build up in many parts of the body. If the concentration of urea in intestinal tract is too high, it can be decomposed into ammonia. Ammonia may irritate gastrointestinal tract, leading to vomiting after dialysis.

Diarrhea after dialysis

Intestinal bacteria disorder is a possible cause of diarrhea. In normal condition, there are a lot of good bacteria in the digestive tract which can promote digestion. However, Kidney Failure can disturb the intestinal balance, thus resulting in a series of digestive disorders including diarrhea.

Infection is commonly seen in dialysis patients. When antibiotics are given, they can wipe out the “good” bacteria in your intestine, which can cause diarrhea. Meanwhile, diarrhea may be a side effect of some medicines.

In addition, if the dialysis patients have diabetes, Diabetes can cause slow movement of food through the intestine. This can cause bacteria to grow, causing diarrhea. Also, sugar-foods and medicines often contain Sorbitol, which may cause diarrhea.

The above are the possible causes of vomiting and diarrhea after dialysis. If you are experiencing the problems and want to know how to manage them, you can leave a message blow.
