What Can Dialysis Patient Take to Have a Bowel Movement

What Can Dialysis Patient Take to Have a Bowel MovementDue to dietary restriction and toxin accumulation inside gastrointestinal tract, some dialysis patients complain constipation. What can dialysis patients take to have a good bowel movement?

Why do dialysis patients have constipation?

If patients have two or fewer bowel movements in a week, they are constipated. A low-fiber diet is thought to be one of the most common causes of constipation in Kidney Failure patients. Many high-fiber foods are high in phosphorous and potassium, however, and thus not kidney-friendly. Therefore, getting enough fiber by choosing kidney-friendly fiber foods is helpful for having a good bowel movement.

What foods are good choices?

Kidney-friendly fruits include cranberry, strawberry, blueberry, blackberry, apple, pears and red grapes. And vegetables are cooked corn, carrots, zucchini, green beans, yellow beans and broccoli. The typical serving size for fruits and vegetables is 1/2 cup. Adding a slice of whole-grain or enriched white bread, or 1/2 cup of oatmeal, can boost fiber while also being kidney-friendly.

Any questions, you can email to us at Our doctor on duty will reply you within 24 hours.

What else you should know?

Increasing fiber intake may help you relieve your problem, but sometimes it is not enough. Your doctor may also prescribe you some medicines. However, neither of them can solve the underlying problem.

As long as kidney function improves, patients can reduce dialysis. In that case, I recommend you to take Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). TCM has been used for centuries and is proved to be very natural for patients. More important, they can increase blood circulation so that kidneys can get enough blood volume and oxygen to function well. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy, Medicated Bath, Foot Bath and Steam Therapy are commonly used methods. If you are interested in them, please do not hesitate to contact with us!
