Abdomen Pain and Peritoneal Dialysis

Peritoneal Dialysis (PD) is not always trouble-free. Patients may experience abdomen pain. There are several causes which contribute to abdomen pain.

- Peritoneal dialysis tends to stretch the abdomen, giving it a rounded appearance and causing abdominal pain. Keeping fit and doing exercises to strengthen the abdominal muscles will help counteract this.

- Peritonitis is an infection of the peritoneum, usually caused by bacteria entering through or around the catheter in patients with CKD. Peritonitis is easy to recognize. Dialysis fluid is normally clear. Peritonitis makes it cloudy. Some patients also experience abdominal pain and fever.

In this condition, your doctor may suggest to add antibiotics to fresh dialysis fluid to alleviate the symptoms.
