Why Do Dialysis Patients Have Hiccups A Lot

Why Do Dialysis Patients Have Hiccups A LotHiccup is one common disorder even for general population. Dialysis is often used to replace impaired kidneys to cleanse the blood, but it can also increase the frequency of hiccups. Some dialysis patients even have a lot of hiccups. Why?

There is one thick intermuscular ligament called diaphragm between chest and abdomen. Just like other organs, diaphragm is also surrounded by nerve and supplemented by blood. When the trigger that causes hiccup sends to the brain, the brain will give orders to make diaphragm's spasmodic contraction, leading to hiccups.

Temporary hiccup is usually caused by cold stimulating, full stomach, quickly eating or eating cold or hard foos. In this case, patients don't need to be worried or see a doctor, because their hiccups can disappear spontaneously.

Continuous or refractory hiccup may have a link with uremia, diabetes, brain, the use of dialysis, and so on. As for dialysis, it may cause intra-abdominal pressure to increase quickly, too much gas to build up in the abdomen, or electrolyte disorder in the internal environment. This is just the direct cause for a lot of hiccups during or after dialysis treatments. In this condition, patients should take action immediately to manage the underlying cause and alleviate refractory hiccups.

If possible, patients can reduce the frequency of dialysis or even stop it. Micro-Chinese Medicine Osmotherapy is just such one therapy that can help achieve this goal. Chinese medicines can help increase the excretion amount of extra electrolyte and add some essential electrolyte into the blood, so as to regulate electrolyte balance. Besides, this external application of Chinese medicine is able to maintain the stable abdominal environment and increase the blood flow all over the body as well as diaphragm, so patients can find their hiccups alleviated from the root.
