Why Do ADPKD Patients Have Nausea

Why Do ADPKD Patients Have NauseaADPKD is autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease. With the progression of ADPKD, patients may have a series of symptoms and complications including nausea. Finding out the underlying cause can guide patients to accept correct methods to manage their nausea.

As introduced by nephrologists, ADPKD patients’ nausea is due to the following conditions.

1. Buildup of waste products and toxins in gastrointestinal tract

With the growth of kidney cysts, enlarged kidney cysts will replace kidney functioning tissues gradually. When kidneys fail to cleanse the blood normally, excessive amount of waste products and toxins will build up in the body as well as gastrointestinal tract. As these harmful substances stimulate the gastrointestinal tract, patients will have nausea easily.

2. High blood pressure

High blood pressure is usually the first symptom of Polycystic Kidney Disease, because enlarged kidney cysts damage renal tubules and kidneys fail to maintain fluid and sodium balance and regulate RAS system. If uncontrolled effectively, too high blood pressure will trigger nausea and vomiting easily.

3. Migraine or headache

Brain aneurysm is one common complication of ADPKD. If it is too big or ruptures, these patients will suffer migraine and headache. In severe cases, nausea and vomiting will also torment these PKD patients.

4. Electrolyte imbalance or acidosis

In addition to filtering blood, maintaining electrolyte and acid-base balance is another important kidney function. When kidneys are damaged severely by expanded kidney cysts, electrolyte imbalance and acidosis will happen, leading to nausea easily.

From the above analysis, we can know enlarged kidney cysts are the root cause of Polycystic Kidney Disease patients’ nausea and vomiting. If you haven’t found the direct cause, you can ask help online. After finding out the causes, the doctor here from Shijiazhuang Kidney Disease Hospital will guide you to manage this problem effectively.
