Adverse Effects of Peritoneal Dialysis

Adverse Effects of Peritoneal DialysisPeritoneal dialysis is used for patients with acute or chronic kidney failure when nondialytic treatment is not adequate. When it prolongs kidney failure patients’ life expectancy, it may cause some adverse effects. What are side effects of peritoneal dialysis?

- Peritonitis

Generally, peritoneal dialysis needs to be done up to four or five times a day. This just increases the risk of one infection, called peritonitis, because peritoneal dialysis uses peritoneum as dialysis membrane.

If patients have this peritonitis, they may suffer from nausea, vomiting, cold, fever, chill, stomach pain, and so on.

- Weight gain

The dialysis solution contains sugar that can be absorbed by the body when patients are doing peritoneal dialysis. This can increase the patients’ calorie consumption. If they don’t reduce their intake of calories and refuse to do regular exercise, they will gain weight gradually. Once they notice they have gained too much weight, they should consult their doctor or doctor here from Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital to arrange a healthy diet plan and exercise plan.
