Is It Safe to Take Miralax If You Have Kidney Disease

Is It Safe to Take Miralax If You Have Kidney DiseaseMiralax is one medication that is used commonly to deal with occasional constipation, while a lot of kidney disease patients suffer from constipation because of restricted diet plan and electrolyte imbalance. Can kidney patients take miralax to ease their constipation?

Miralax works by holding water in the stool, so as to increase the number of stool movements. If kidney patients experience acute constipation, they can take this medication to ease their problem for one or two times. If they have the following side effects, they are required to stop miralax.

- Excessive bowel movements

- Severe stomach pain

- Bleeding stools

- Allergic reactions such as rash, itching and dizziness

However, if patients have chronic constipation, miralax will not work so well. In this condition, patients are suggested to modify their diet plan and medical treatment from the root. Here, we give out the following treatment options.

1. Drink enough water: Water is the best cleaner for our body, but for kidney patients, extra fluid intake will increase the burden on kidneys. From this point, kidney patients should determine the amount of fluid intake according to their illness condition. However, if patients have swelling or high blood pressure, they should restrict their fluid intake.

2. Eat more fiber-containing foods: Fiber can help improve patients digestion and soften patients’ stool. Celery, cucumber, grains, etc, are all rich in fiber. You can choose correct food to eat, with online doctor’s guidance.

3. Traditional Chinese medicine: Some Chinese medicines are proven to be effective on regulating internal environment. Because constipation for kidney patients is mainly due to electrolyte disorder, correct Chinese medicines can help solve this problem from the root. Besides, some systemic treatments can also help repair damaged kidney cells and rebuild kidney structure. Hopefully, you can choose effective treatments to reverse your kidney damage and eliminate your constipation. Therefore, you don’t need to take miralax any more.
