ESRD and No Bowel Movement

ESRD and No Bowel MovementQuite a number of ESRD patients suffer the pain of no bowel movement, also known as severe constipation. This not only affects patients’ life quality but also reduces the excretion amount of toxins. Therefore, it is quite important to deal with no bowel movement for ESRD patients.

No bowel movement and end stage renal disease

Kidneys are organs responsible for filtering out extra fluid, waste products and toxins, regulating blood pressure, secreting EPO and activating vitamin D. In end stage renal disease, patients are recommended to control the fluid intake and develop a healthy diet plan, in order to reduce the burden on kidneys. However, lack of fluid in the body can induce constipation easily. Besides, low-fiber diet is another cause of no bowel movement.

In addition to dietary factor, several medical conditions can also cause this problem. The first one may be electrolyte imbalance. With the decline of kidney function, abnormal potassium, sodium, calcium, phosphorus, etc, levels appear easily. This can commonly induce bowel disorders. All in all, low kidney function is the root cause.

How to manage no bowel movement for ESRD patients?

According to the above causes, treatments should include three aspects: dietary modifications, normalizing electrolyte balance and improving kidney condition.

Firstly, some ESRD patients don’t dare to drink any fluid, for preventing discomfortable feeling. However, this is wrong.

Therefore, ESRD patients should make sure how much water to drink one day with doctor’s guidance.

Secondly, take correct medications to regulate electrolyte balance. Choosing healthy foods and electrolyte supplements like calcium supplement is useful.

Finally, choose some effective treatments to improve kidney condition.

You can ask online doctor to determine which one is suitable for you.
