IgA Nephropathy: Why I Have Diarrhea after Dialysis

IgA Nephropathy: Why I Have Diarrhea after DialysisIgA Nephropathy is an autoimmune disease. Twenty-five percent of people with this kidney disease develop End-Stage Renal Disease where dialysis is needed. Some patients on dialysis may experience problem of diarrhea. Why?

Diarrhea refers to loose, watery stools that occur more frequently than usual. It often means more frequent trips to the toilet and a great volume of stool. For IgA Nephropathy patients on dialysis, they may experience this problem due to the following reasons:

Diabetes. Diabetes may lead to slow movement of food through the intestine, causing the growth of bacteria and leading to diarrhea. In addition, sugar-free foods and medications often contain sorbitol, which can result in diarrhea.

▪ Food allergies or food poisoning. This may include allergies to milk foods, or bacteria from spoiled food like E. Coli or salmonella.

▪ Medicines or antibiotics. Antibiotics may be prescribed in order to wipe out the 'good' bacteria in the intestine, which can cause diarrhea. Some medications have this problem as a side effect, or may cause this problem from mixing with other medications.

▪ Alcohol. It can often lead to diarrhea because of poor vitamin and mineral absorption, and can cause faster movement of foods through the intestine.

These are common factors that may cause diarrhea in IgA Nephropathy patients on dialysis. After confirming the cause, treatment can be taken to eliminate this problem. Consult our online doctor if you cannot narrow down the reason for your problem. Or, you can email us at Glad to share advice!
