The accumulation of urea in blood

The accumulation of urea in blood is a common cause of stomach problems in patients with nephrotic syndrome. Kidney has the function of excreting the unuseful substances out of blood, and urea is the metabolic product of protein, and its level in blood changes in a stable range. While for patients with severe kidney damage, their kidneys can not complete their work normally, so the urea will accumulate gradually.

While if the urea level in blood is too high, it can stimulate the bacteria in gastrointestinal tracts to excrete urease, which can decompose the urine and produce ammonia. Ammonia has strong irritation to stomach and intestines, and it may even cause anabrosis.

The accumulation of toxins in blood

Another cause of stomach problems in patients with nephrotic syndrome is the accumulated toxins in their blood. As the decrease of kidney function, toxins like creatinine, guanidines, phenols, uric acid, etc, will accumulate in blood, and that can also cause stomach problems.
