Dialysis Patients with Black Stool

Dialysis Patients with Black StoolKidney Failure patients often have a variety of complications, even though they begin dialysis. Some dialysis patients complain of black stool. Why do dialysis patients have black stool? How to manage it?

The cause of black stool for dialysis patients

Generally, black stool is due to gastrointestinal bleeding which becomes black after oxidation. This condition has a close link with buildup of toxins and malnutrition.

Because dialysis can’t remove toxins as effectively as kidneys, toxins will cause pathological changes of mucous membrane easily. Malnutrition can reduce the protection mechanism and repairing ability of gastric mucosa. Therefore, dialysis patients are still at a high risk of gastrointestinal bleeding, resulting in black stool.

How to treat black stool for dialysis patients?

According to the causes, we would like to introduce the following treatments to manage patients’ black stool.

- Use some medicines: In clinic, proton pump inhibitor (PPI) and H2-antagonis can reduce the secretion of gastric acid, so as to prevent upper digestive tract bleeding and ease black stool.

- Choose alternative therapy to dialysis: As the above mentioned, although dialysis can replace impaired kidneys to filter blood, it isn’t so effectively. In order to ease patients’ black stool, patients should accept more effective treatments to cleanse the blood.

Blood Purification consists of various methods including Plasma Exchange, Immune Adsorption, CRRT, Hemofiltration, and so on. These methods can remove various molecules of waste products and toxins, so as to improve the internal environment.

- Improve kidney condition: It is reported that some therapies such as Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy and Clear Blood Pollution Therapy can help repair damaged kidney cells and improve patients’ kidney function level.
