Treatment for Constipated Dialysis Patient

Treatment for Constipated Dialysis PatientBecause of restricted diet plan, some medications or other factors, dialysis patients may suffer from constipation easily. This may cause feelings of full abdomen easily. Then, nearly all of these patients can’t help asking effective treatment for constipated dialysis patient.

To alleviate patients’ constipation, the therapy should begin from developing a kidney-friendly diet plan. Then, some medications may also be needed for relaxing their bowel function.

As we know, a diet low in fiber and with restricted fluid intake can trigger dialysis patients’ constipation. To deal with this problem, adults are recommended to add 20-35 g of fiber into their diet every day. However, dialysis patients are required to limit the intake of whole grains and dried beans which contain abundant fibers. From this point, these patients can consume more allowed fruits and vegetables, such as berries, apples and carrots, which are also a good source of fiber.

Besides constipation, dialysis patients may have some other problems like high potassium level. Then, they need to pay highly attention to their intake of some fruits and vegetables, because they may be rich in potassium. In view of this, you had better consult your doctor before you consume these foods.

If patients are unable to absorb enough fiber from their eating foods, fiber supplements can be helpful. In drugstore or market, there are various kinds of fiber supplements. Choose one of them suitable for yourself as your fiber supplement.

Here, some patients may think of a laxative, but compared with laxative, we would like to recommend Chinese medicine enema therapy. These medicines can help soften stool and prompt more toxins and waste products to discharge out through bowel and intestinal tract. Without any side effect, patients can use this therapy to clean their internal environment successfully.
